Hello mate, Lucas here. I'm an electrician from New Zealand, and have accumulated some interesting things in my time. For example a Variable Speed Drive (VSD) rated up to a 3kw induction 3 phase motor, a few motors, and have bought a whole lot of Lithium Ion batteries, and a Mazda 323 5 door.
Yes everything is possible in this field of application, it's just time, money, and know how. Have a look at what Tesla, the car maker is doing, and also what DeWalt have done with their record breaking eletric car. Enjoy.
