About the biggest motor I can get in her,
I have millimeters to spare
DrivetrainHad a 3 cylinder 800 cc engine and 5 speed
manual gearbox front wheel drive
ControllerAlltrax AXE7245
at this stage the car will be 72 volt and
used for my 40 to 50 kms per day run
around as money replenishes I shall add a
second pack 72 volts to give the 144 volt
I feel she needs to get up and go
Batteries24 Thunder Sky LYP100AHA, 72.00 Volt, Lithium-Polymer
Start out with 24 and go to 48 later on
when I save some money from the non
purchase of petrol

heater element wrapped around an oil catch
can. see photos on web site

on the roof of car to charge the 12 volt
Batt. this will also have a 12 volt
charger which will charge when main pack
plugged in
InstrumentationTBS Electronics

Top Speed45 MPH (72 KPH)
to begin with I can't imagine getting more
than 75 to 80 kmph how ever the car will
rarely see an 80 kmph stretch of road
mostly be 50 to 60 kmph limit
AccelerationI'm not a performance guy, so long as it
doesn't hold traffic up I'll be happy
Range35 Miles (56 Kilometers)
hope for 30 to 35 miles about 60 kms. this
will increase to around 80 to 100 kms with
the additional pack
Watt Hours/Mile200 Wh/Mile
Going on the Jack Rikards method of the
weight of the cat in pounds the watts per
mile being 10% of this. The car should
come in at just under 2000 pounds so
around 200 watts per mile
EV Miles
