Default VW Golf Mk2 - VoltsWagon

Here's my baby. I love it. She was converted and complete 7,000 successful miles but the owner was moving abroad and sold the 120V lead pack and took his controllers, charger and ancilliary stuff with him in his camper.

The car has been on here before and on the UK battery vehicle site and is well documented.

The car was run on 120V originally before being 'tweaked' up to 156V!! With a 1200A controller it must have been quite a handleful!!

My aims are more modest and I'm very grateful to he previous owner for moving abroad and selling it to me.

I wish to build a modest performing commuter vehicle. 144V/500A controller with a lithium pack. My commute is on 6 miles each way but I also wish the car to be useful around town for short errands and stuff.

My plan is to build in a 60Ah 144V pack which can then be added to with another 60Ah at a later date. That should give me a well performing car with good range.

Hi Ace,

Yes, put the pictures on a photobucket account, then you can copy the address links over here

Looking forward to the pics.
