1 week EV Conversion

Post by drowe67 »

Hello,

Starting Thursday 23 April a group of three will be attempting a 1 week EV conversion. The goal is to take an ICE Charade into the garage, then produce a drivable EV in 1 week. Three of us (myself, plus Michael and John from the Geelong AEVA) will perform the work full time at my house in Kilkenny.

You are very welcome to help out or just come and watch, just let me know.

We are using the low cost Chinese kit from Eugen (aka Goombi), it will be a 96V conversion with 8 AGM lead acid batteries. Conversion cost is $6-8k (total depends on how good we are at scrounging), estimated 80% DoD range 60km, top speed 85 km/hr. The target is to build a low cost 60 km/hr metro commuter - quickly.

Cheers,

David

David,
I should be able to help for at least a few days during that week.
What time are you starting on the Thursday?
Is someone videoing it?

Sure Eric you are very welcome. First thing Thursday and we haven't organised a camera yet although it would be great to prepare a video as a record to help others.

Thanks,

David
