    144VDC
    Here's a question for you. My Beetle is 120v - 15 - 8v batteries 170ah, D&D ES-31B motor, Kelly KDH 14600B Controller. I only have 240 miles on the car. My range was about 30 -35miles per charge. Yesterday I drove the car 15 miles and during the last mile to my house the car began to slow down. In fact with the accelerator nearly floored it would only draw 50 amps and go no faster than 30mph. On my trip I averaged 40-45mph. I pulled it into the garage and first checked the controller...barely warm. Motor...hot (it always is). I read the pack volatage...118.8v then battery by battery 7.8v....7.9v average. What happened? Any thoughts?
