    I think I need a small welder. It would be just so convenient for certain work.

    Hi Steve. I live in Lunenburg Ontario, just north of Cornwall. I recently gutted (almost completely) my 2004 Hyundai Elantra and am trying to get some traction on converting to EV for a runabout to get me to Cornwall and back (roughly 40 km round trip. I am really low on funds and am looking for contacts for motors and controllers etc...and tips on legal issues in Ontario etc. I also figured that I'd better show up on local radar and get myself known...make some contacts etc.

    I really believe strongly in EVs and hope to be one of the team to show Canadians that they are possible. My project might not happen any time soon but I have been following the online community a lot and am keen to make some sort of progress.

    Just thought I would say hi and put myself out there. Cheers!

    Hi Steve, sorry I didn't notice your message until just now.
    I'm located in Ottawa, ON. My conversion is not yet done (I'm slowwwly working towards getting the motor mated to the transmission and then installed. You can see the thread here: 91 Tercel

    If you have any specific questions, just shoot... I'll do my best.

    Roger's Fiero is one of my favorites, just love the look of the dual stacked motors. My single motor is fine for anything I need, but someday I'd like to double it to make a real screamer. Not sure how you're going to feel with only 72 volts unless you can really pull some amps. Have you started a build thread yet?

    Hello all,

    60% finished my 1984 Fiero and are just waiting for the motor and transmission to come back from the machine shop (about a month) and are wondering if anyone had any experiance with a 72V 7.6 KW Crown motor and the possible performance I beleave it is just above 10HP at continuous run. The controller I am using is a Zapi 80V 600 Amps along with 18 Deka Unigy (3 parallel x 6 series).

1984 Pontiac Fiero Electric Vehicle Conversion / From start to finish with a ride along



1984 Pontiac Fiero Electric Vehicle Conversion / From start to finish with a ride along. In this video you will see how easy it is to convert a gas car to electric in your driveway with no garage and really no special tools. I did have a coupler made from a machinist because this part has to be pretty balanced as it can spin on the motor about 5000 rpm's. The coupler...

EV Grinning, we have just completed our conversion from gas to electric, two weeks ago the Fiero passed it's safety test with no problems. We had the car licensed and plated the following week. We have had a few road tests, trying to find the actual range per charge. We are averaging about 25 km's (15.33 miles) per charge with a charging cost that has averaged about $0.67 and taking about 6 hours to charge @ 10amps per charger from a standard 115 volt ac plug rated at 15 amps. The top speed averages...

Ontario's Ban on Electric Cars

Success!!! The Ban on EV Conversions is Over!!!

Yesterday (June 7, 2010), Electric Mobility Canada sent out an e-mail advising its Ontario members that MTO has lifted the ban, and has implemented an interim solution for the licensing of electric vehicle conversions. That e-mail read (in part):

Hello All,

Found a great little download that has a bunch of great electronic tools. Electronics Assistant is a Windows program that performs electronics-related calculations. It includes a resistor colour code calculator, resistance, capacitance and power calculations and more. Details of calculations can be saved or printed. It provides all the functions found in the calculators section of this site and more in a stand-alone user friendly program.
