What's the curb weight on this? My only concern is that in '32 the cars would have been made pretty heavy, and getting a battery pack big enough to move that weight in the space available may be hard.New to EV, could this be done? How hard would it be to do? I have a lot of auto mechanic skills but zero electric car skills
It would need to go 40mph, for 20-30 miles.
This is very doable. Say 350 wh/mi (just a guess since it's a bit on the heavy side) x 30 mi = 18.9kwh (after FLA Puekert and Depth of Discharge). With a 120v system you're looking at 157 Ah needed. 150 is easily doable. If you went AGM, the batteries won't last as long, but you'd cut the Ah needed by ~ 30%. I'll defer to Tom on the mechanical issues there, but the weight shouldn't prove to be a problem, even with PbA, assuming you find the room to put the batteries.Thanks that helps.
2400-2800 lbs not to bad is it?
