I'm from Iceland and this hole idea of EV car is blowing me away.
Nice to see how much life is into this conversion idea and salute to you pioners of ev conversion. With all that said.
You m****s. j/k
Well I've been reading kiwis (NZ) forums and it sounds to my that you guys are just makeing another "who killed the electical car" electrical car!
There is only one way to compair EV car to fuel car and that is by kW's and what do we have in fuel cars 70 - 130kW's . . and you guys are doing 12 - 40 kW's? and fuel car goes like 4-600 km on fuel and your goal is 40 km . . or 60? Common we can do better than that guys . . can't we?
How do we coulculate this? Watts = Amps x Volts, W = A x V
We can find Peek of LA batteries as well as Li-ion batteries.
Some LA (LeadAcid) has max 515 A for 30 sec at 0 C°. 400 Ah Li-ion has 800 - 1000 A continuous and 2000 A max peak? do the math ;-)
My math is 144 x 800 = 115 kW
I'm prolly pissing somebody off here but my goal is to make Huyndai Santa Fe a EV and I want a car that can go 320 km (200 miles) and I want to be able to go no less than 160 km/h (100 mph).
What I need for this is 11 inc motor, 1-2 k zilla converter and 96 - 144 volts 400 Ah Li-ion its ion guys not iron!!!!! ion there is no r there ion.
Yea its expencive but I like to be able to pull my trailer and maby I have to give the trailer extra battery pack to extend the power but I can drive sooo much cheeper so I can pay my bills without any fuel cost!
Now thats what I call EV conversion.
