Hi just joined today.

Sold my EV yesterday REva DC - as we are migrating from London to Noosa. I wished I could have broght my little car - but not to be.

I see EV Blades have vehicles for sale - or its a DIY job. I had to rebuild my car - with blown motors etc. So possibly looking to go to a conversion.

Or possibly purchase one that any of you have converted?

Regards

Gday Garry,

welcome to the forum.
IIRC - the blade EVs are batch conversions of the hyundai getz, usually using a brand new base vehicle.
more powerful, faster, longer range and much more expensive than the reva.

which state is noosa in?
what car do you currently have with a blown motor?

Heh Matt

I still have ( until I get fully paid) / sold a Reva G Wiz DC
it 48V , Trojan Lead acid battery.

The motor - blew aro commutator failure - which I think wqas done to checking the brushes for wear. I believe that replacing the brushes without filing them / or completely replaces them was the reason for failure.

Here are some choice pics of the outside and workings of the car.

Ahh don't see the add pics . so I will add my website go there to see some pics. www.natureway.co.uk
