For Sale: Lotus Elise EV

Hi Guys, This car is now sold. Deposit received. I know that $49,990 is a lot of money, but it was a bargain at that price for what you get compared to the price of a Tesla.

It is a sensational car - The new owner will love it!!!

Many thanks for looking! :) Paul.

For Sale: Lotus Elise EV

This car is still available, although I do have 2 guys interested with trade-in's. There is no clutch and this car has so much power that it can set off in 4th gear easily so no need for any gear changes. I usually use 3rd all of the time. It is very easy to change gears whilst driving in this car w...

EV Commodore planned - all electric

Holden made one 11 years ago and called it the E-commodore. If you want to see it and live in SA, go down to the Birdwood motor museum as there is an all-electric Commodore there on display. They made it to take VIP's around Sydney when it was the Sydney 2000 Olympics. So, if they've already made on...

Nissan Leaf, Holden Volt , Ford or DIY

The Tesla roadster is about $107,000 US and the Tesla dealership will be selling them, for around $250,000 (I have an email from Tesla to prove this)-(so cost in AUD is about US$ x 230%). If the Tesla S sells for $50,000US then x 230% = $115,000 so you are right they wont be $150,000, they will be a...

I got an electric dirt bike for my 6 year old son to ride in my parents 2 acre paddock. It was only $300 from Ebay and is very similar to the one in the photo. It is 24v and has a 250 watt motor. It is plenty fast enough for him. He can ride it very well with no problems. I ride with him on my 800w ...

I brought it home and I've used the HYPERTERM program to communicate with the Zilla. I am really happy about this as n...

DC Circuit breaker 400 amps+

Thanks Guys, The idea is to use the circuit breaker as an emergency on/off located on the battery box (which can be reached from the drivers seat). The main reason is for that extra peace of mind just in case the contactor gets stuck in the ON position. I will still be able to shut down the high vol...

DC Circuit breaker 400 amps+

Hi, Thats a contactor which operates via a 12v supply.

I am looking for a manual DC circuit breaker that can handle 400 amps so that I can manually turn off the DC side when I need to.

Thanks anyway. Image

DC Circuit breaker 400 amps+

Hi, Does anyone know where I can purchase a 400 amp DC circuit breaker for my EV (which is almost complete)?

I am running 144 volts from the traction batteries (45x120Ah Sky Energy).

EV works use to sell them, but now they are not online.....

Any help would be apreciated.
