You can follow my build for Nissan Leaf ideas. The Lexus motors are nice but I think are too big to drive your transfer case. Check out the Ford Eluminator motor also if you haven't seen it yet.
The Ford "crate motor" is not expensive, but it's not just a motor - it's a complete drive unit of motor with reduction gearing and differential. How would you use that in a Montero?The 281hp crate motor sounds great I wonder How much it will cost?
Low range isn't necessary with most engines for most purposes, either. It's a matter of determining how much torque will be available to the wheels at low speed, and comparing that to what you need.If I understand correctly, low range is not necessary with an electric motor?
In some ways this hybrid transmission/drive unit is an easy way to go, because it will fit in the space originally occupied by the transmission, with it and the battery replacing both the engine and the transmission.So maybe the L110f will work? Wouldn't this be the easiest way?
That's very dependent on details... is it is a stock Leaf drive unit, or with a modified controller and/or inverter? Which Leaf drive unit... 80 kW (came in cars with 24 kWh and 30 kWh batteries), 110 kW (comes in cars with 40 kW battery), or 160 kW (comes in cars with 62 kWh battery)? Is the L110 modified to use MG1 as well as MG2? Would the transmission be shifted to optimize Leaf motor output?Do you think it would out perform a Leaf motor hooked up to the original trans?
No, I mean physically and mechanically... but which "fit" comment are you asking about?When you say "fit" do you mean fiscally?
Hi CacoWith both motors on the L110f together is it posible or what would it take to produce 80/200 KW that I figure will move my brick shaped truck?
If I start start with 50km range, is it that complicated to later increase the range?
Has the L110f inverter controller been hacked?
I couldn't find anything at openinverter?
I dont know much about your intended vehicle but it might be possible/easier to connect your transfer case to the GS450h. Gearing would be a consideration then tho. Low box probably isnt needed on an electric conversion.
My humble opinion:
-Buy a running and driving Nissan Leaf, pretty sure its years 2013-17 that are supported by the Resolve EV controller so make sure its one of those.
-Buy Resolve EV controller. This will allow you to use the charger and DC-DC converter that are already in the Leaf stack.
-Remove the Leaf transmission from the motor. Create a coupler that connects the output shaft of the motor to the input shaft of the trans. Clutch optional.
-Make an adapter to bolt the motor to the trans. Integrate mounts that go to the factory engine mount. I have CAD files and part numbers that can help with your coupler/adapter I'll dig em up if you like.
-Volvo electric power steering pump.Give it 12v and fires right up, Ebay has em for like $150. I walked into a local hydraulic line shop with the pump and high pressure line from the Toyota and they made me a custom line in 10 minutes, was like $40.
-Make a battery box and install them in the cargo area. Of course this isn't optimal, but you can split up the modules and create battery boxes to fit under the body later.
My 4runner is roughly 5,000lbs with 35" tires, the stock 80wh Leaf motor moves it fine. Not crazy powerful, but fun. Put it in low range and it will do donuts on hard pack dirt.
Feel free to message me anytime, would love to talk more about your build.
