Vehicle2003 MG TF
A fun british convertible from the early 2000s
I take inspiration from Neil Hutchinson's 2000
MGF ( WebPage ) and Mark
Newell's in-progress conversion of another MGF
(WebPage )
MotorSiemens 1PV5133-4WS20 3-Phase AC
This is the proposed motor - not yet purchased
or installed.
DrivetrainCurrently the stock 1.6L K-series Rover engine
& gearbox.

When converted, it will be powered by a
Siemens Ford Ranger motor & Siemens Simovert
6SV 100kW inverter.
ControllerSiemens Simovert 6SV Water-cooled
This is the proposed inverter - not yet
purchased or installed.
BatteriesNissan Leaf OEM Batteries, 7.40 Volt, Lithium-Ion
I intend to use OEM Nissan batteries made for
the Nissan Leaf EV as these are cost effective
and available for me in the UK. I also would
like to minimize the environmental impact of
the conversion - so new batteries shipped from
china are not an acceptable option for me if I
can get second-life OEM batteries to work.

This is the proposed charger - not yet purchased
or installed.

the traction pack.
