Vehicle1998 Renault CLIO 1.2 RN
The Renault Clio is a supermini car produced by the French automobile manufacturer Renault. Originally launched in 1990, it is currently in its fourth generation as of 2012. The Clio has seen substantial critical and commercial success, being consistently one of Europe's top-selling cars since its launch,[1] and it is largely credited with restoring Renault's reputation and stature after a difficult second half of the 1980s. The Clio is the only car to have been elected European Car of the Year twice, in 1991 and in 2006.

MotorZiBo Super Motor ZT10-96 MOTOR Separately Excited DC
Specifications: electric car motor of 10kw 96V with good performance, competitive price and high efficiency.
10kw 96V separately excited EV motor
high torque, high car speed, product advantages:
1)low noise
2)easy brush replacement
3)strong capacity of overload,can bear 3 times overload current,and 4.5 times overload torque
4)can realize the step less smooth speed,satisfy the heavy load vehicles to smart,hill climbing and speed chang movement on different roads
5)don't need to increase the gears
6)efficient and long continuous running time
7)robust construction for long and reliable service life
8)fully impregnated frame and field
DrivetrainRetained the orginal gear box and clutch.
Controller ipMCSep 96V/400A
ipMCSep series programmable controllers provide smooth and seamless regenerative control of separately excited motors. An advanced MOSFET power section, combined with a sophisticated microprocessor provides very high efficiency, quiet operation and reduces motor and battery losses. ipMCSep series controllers are designed for widely application in golf cars, sightseeing vehicles, hunting buggies, electric vehicles, heavy-duty trucks, electric yachts and other kinds of utility vehicles.
Batteries8 Leoch DGF12140, 12.00 Volt, Lead-Acid, Flooded
DGF Series batteries are flooded tubular battery, rechargeable lead-acid batteries which in contrast to conventional systems, retain positive plates as tubular structure.
General Features

1.Longer service life.
2.Higher number of cycles.
3.Reliable pillar sealing construction, absolute no pillar corrosion.
4.Against short circuit design with the highest possibility to prevent any short circuit.
5.Flexible option for automatic refilling system and air circulation system.
6.Nonwoven protective gauntlet, better elastic, less pore size, less electrical resistance and higher air permeability.
7.Flexible, fully isolated connector prevents any creeping current.
8.Flip top plugs with special electrolyte level indication.
9.Imported microporous catercorner separator with advanced quality provides higher porosity and lower electrical resistance.
10.Containers and lids are made of polypropylene (PP). The impact resistance is very good.
11.Patented terminal sealing construction fully prevents plate growth and electrolyte leakage.
System Voltage96 Volts
Charger VCA(12V 15A)
HeaterBuilt-in EBERSPACHER D1LC diesel heater, which blow hot air in the cabin, works very well.
DC/DC ConverterKelly HWZ Series DC/DC Converter 96V to 13.5V 25A
Dimensions: 179mm(L)*140mm(W)*71mm(H)
Input voltage: DC 96V
Operating voltage range:75V-130V
Output voltage: DC 13.5V
Output current: 25A
InstrumentationOriginal - processed, additional built-in digital current meter and battery capacity (10-100%), between the seats installed console cruise control, which allows direct reading of data and programming cruise control (ON LINE).
Top Speed50 MPH (80 KPH)
Electric car must overcome on its way quite a few hills with 20-40% slope, so I for conversion takes engine with slower - 2800 rpm and maximum torque, cruising speed of 60-70km (80km/h is the maximum speed) per hour I completely sufficient for the daily journey to and from work.
AccelerationWhen starting the vehicle with the city, there is absolutely no difference, but lacking a bit of power cruising uphill, in general - is driving a steady and pleasant.
Range31 Miles (49 Kilometers)
Easily could have scored more if the vehicle was driven on a straight road and not on hilly terrain, I assume that at least 35 miles (56km) - 70% DOD.
Watt Hours/Mile304 Wh/Mile
304 Wh per mile driven (= 190 Wh per kilometer) is the measured power from the wall outlet, thus covering all losses including loss on battery chargers + losses in the wiring and blower (12V, 30W), which blows the hydrogen from the protective housing in which they are installed batteries (a 50% charge time).
EV Miles
Start:156,448 Miles (251,724 Kilometers)
Current:162,614 Miles (261,645 Kilometers)
Total:6,166 Miles (9,921 Kilometers)
Seating CapacityTwo-seater - instead of the rear seats are installed batteries (six in the cab) and two in the motor area (electrically heated!).
Curb Weight2,641 Pounds (1,200 Kilograms)
2641 lbs or 1200kg
TiresWinter car tire - tire marks Kormoran, size 155/65R13 for speeds up to 160 km / h (speed class Q) and load index 73Q. The maximum permissible load is 365 kg per tire - or rubber. 730 kg per axle.
Conversion TimeFrom purchase to finish the previous year, well, the car would have been completed earlier if they had not had too many problems with the previous BLDC Goldenmotor model HPM10/20kW 96V, which I later replaced with Sepex brush DC motor and appropriate speed controller.
Conversion CostAccording to what I've set a target that is completely managed (8.000 EUR - 2000 EUR (eco-subsidy) = 6.000,00 EUR)- just the right price, I would at current fuel prices quickly pay off! !
