    Hello good people! My son and I are going down the path of converting my 1978 Triumph Spitfire to an EV. We got a hold of a 2014 Nissan Leaf as the donor. Our “plan A” is to use the components of the Leaf and not get “fancy” with swapping out components (like, we’ll keep the full battery packs...

    Long time listener, first time caller. :-) I'm in the EARLY stages of thinking through a conversion of my loved Triumph TR4a. I've been driving electric since 2015 with my first electric being a leased Fiat 500e. A second 500e was bought in 2018 when the first's lease termed. I've also acquired...

    I am wondering if anyone knows the wiring on the Leaf drive selector? It has 10 of 12 pins in connector filled. I'd really like to reuse it in Miata1EV! I imagine there is a 12v switched supply and a ground wire. It uses fairly unique switches for D, N, and R, and probably a momentary switch...

    Hello guys I am working on running a 2015 Leaf system outside the car, basically running the drive system and necessary electronics on a bench. I was asking some technicians around about the project and they are all claiming that I need a complete car or a front cut at least as all the parts...

    Hey all, I have a 2012 Leaf which I’ve upgraded to a 40kwh battery. My next task is to attempt to upgrade the 3.3kw obc to something a bit more powerful, perhaps to 6.6, or even more the better. Looking at some different options including Brusa options which seem to be the most well documented...

    I bought this 2015 leaf at auction and imported it to Canada. It rolls with the exception of the front pax wheel and will need to be trailered or parted out. I purchased it to do an EV conversion and now I'm not sure if I want to go down that path. It does not have fast charge (on purpose) and...

    Aloha DIYers! I've been thinking about EV conversions for a while, and now I've finally jumped in. Yes, I'm in Hawaii, shipping is crazy expensive, and so I'm trying to source from junkyards as much as possible for my first go at this. I have some basic tools and backyard, no lift or mechanic's...

    It's been a slow moving project, but making enough progress now to post an update. When I joined the forum I was looking for a tractor to convert using a salvage '15 leaf I bought (see my initial posting). Since then, I bought a 1964 Oliver 1800 with a seized engine to be the recipient. I...

    I've started collecting the components to convert a tractor. So far I have a salvaged 2015 leaf, and have my eye on some old tractors at auction that I think might be simple conversions. Hoping to get an Oliver 88, or 1550. We own two other leaf's (2015 and 2021). It will be fun to dig into...

    Hi, for a solar boat project, I'm considering adding two heater / A/C systems from two Nissan Leafs, since I may use the drive system from those as well. Has anyone tried / documented getting the heater / A/C to work outside of the car? It's probably the cheapest heatpump based heater one...

    I picked up a bashed-in 2014 Leaf at a salvage auction to transplant into a '79 Superbeetle convertible that we've had. The Leaf has 78k miles with a lot of front-end damage, but it moves on its own, and was delivered to my driveway for about $4500 for the car, auction fees, and shipping...
  15. Batteries and Charging
    Last week, the salvage 2014 Leaf arrived for my Superbeetle conversion. The front is pretty bashed (radiator support almost touches the drive stack) but the car can move around on its own. When I plug in the trickle charger that came with it, the car starts beeping a lot and all three charge...

    Hi All, Last week, a salvage 2014 Leaf was dropped off to start converting a 1979 Superbeetle convertible we already have. Total cost for the Leaf including shipping was $4500. It has 78k miles and the front end is pretty bashed, with the radiator support almost touching the drive stack, but...

    I'm currently interested in converting a small speedboat to electric, using this 40kw peak brushless electric motor. The plan is to run it on around 100v, using the 50kv variant of the motor to produce our 5000-6000 RPM desired. This motor is 40KW peak, and around 25KW constant so the battery...

    Hi new to this forum so forgive me if I'm asking old questions. 1, what is the lowest voltage that the leaf motor works at? 2, Has anyone successfully used a Curtis controller on the Leaf motor? I'm not to bothered about running for a long distance, I just dont have much room for batteries.

    Hi everybody! I've been lurking in the posts for a while but am finally starting a build thread with the hopes of further expanding the knowledge base for Nissan Leaf conversions, as well as having all you experts help me thru the challenges. I got my Leaf and donor at CoPart auctions. It's a...

    I have looked through the forums pretty closely and tried my best to find the answer. I am looking for any info on the size of the complete leaf motor unit/inverter/pdm as seen in the Gen 2 leafs. My basic plan is to convert a crx I have been restoring to electric and step 1 is figuring out...
