first testdrive!

Posted 07-21-2010 at 03:03 AM by brainzel (New Beetle conversion)

Sunday our New Beetle rolled out of the garage on it's own! We got on a testdrive in our neighborhood, just to feel this great moment :-)
There is still a lot of work to do, but this milestone was a big rock! :-)
So stay tuned ... it will go on :-)

Why electric?

The reason to get an electric vehicle is surely different to everybody who get flashed by the conversion virus.
Our biggest personal reason is our first electric car, a swiss Solec Riva Junior.

Solec Riva Junior
year of manufacture: 1990 (Switzerland)
Motor: DC 6kW / 8,16PS / 8.046 hp
direct shaft, no transmission, no gears
60 volts out of 10x 6V LeadAcid (Banner 180 Ah)
Vmax: 90...

Hi,

I will try to translate the important points to my New Beetle conversion in this blog. I got some questions about it, because my "original" blog is written in german language.
My english is surly not the best, so please feel free to correct me, ask me questions, comment and be patient to me
