On Monday I'm beginning my EV conversion on a Lotus Europa. I work 4 miles from home so my goal is to be able to drive it to work and back only. I want 10-15 miles of usable range. I also don't need to get above 45 MPH. I feel like these are reasonable goals for my first EV conversion. The car weighs about 1500 pounds with the gas engine in it and it doesn't have power steering or brakes, only lights and power windows. I'm not worried about heat or AC. I just want to be able to drive the 4 miles to work and back in a cool old ev. I want to keep it looking as stock as possible.... I'm not working with an unlimited budget but I am hoping the small goals I have set for the car will help me prioritize and keep costs down. Also I have all of the ICE parts from the Lotus that I'm going to sell to help with the costs. I think a Europa is the perfect car for conversion. It is light and has plenty of room in the back for batteries and stuff... I'm very excited.
