I need to either perform alot of repair on my Xterra or scrap it and buy a new vehicel. As such, I'm considering a conversion and to do some non-standard things. I am somewhat skilled at mechanics and fabrication.
I'd like to achieve:
- 250miles per charge,
- regen braking (understand I need an AC system)
- NOT use the old transmission (can i use four independent motors)
- understand if I can mount solar panels (roof...hood?)
- small generator (biofuels) to recharge if no station avail
Staring a feasibility study for the above in terms of cost, difficulty and limits.
Any thoughts and advice are appreciated.
