2011 Ford Focus Conversion $8k (ex EV Trial)

Post by antiscab »

Hi All,

I recently got my Ford Focus working again.
Brief recap - A previous owner let the original battery go flat (0v). The car was subsequently sold and the original battery binned. I acquired the car sans battery, and have now installed a new (to me) battery.

Details:
looking at 50km range (maybe more, I need to do a range test)
32 x CALB CA 130Ah cells with 2013 manufacture dates
zilla 1k lv
hall effect pedal
heater works (it's a kettle with a pump into the old heater core)
TBS e-expert energy meter
EV Power BMS also, with an energy meter built in

the bad:
aircon doesn't work - aircon lines need reconnecting and then regassing. aircon lines have been exposed to atmosphere for a couple of years

car is not current registered, but can get it registered for WA buyers (engineering certs are on file at DOT)
I'm going to hold off on registration for a little while in case someone interstate is interested (I have one offer at the moment)
looking for $8k if I have to get it registered but happy to negotiate.

Matt

The box of bits comes with the car, and is all the parts needed to go up to 48 cells (or 45 x CALB CA 200Ah cells if you wanted to do a full replacement)
