Hi everyone,
I'm not long reading this forum and I couldn't find a topic like that.

Did somebody used parts from a crashed auto (Zoe, leaf, etc)?

If the motor, controller, etc (usually not battery is available ) are in a good condition, could that been use or it would be a nightmare software?

My idea is convert an old Mx5 as other did before but maybe I can uses the resources from a actual car.

Ideas?
Thank you

Keep reading and searching. It is very common to use battery cells from wrecked vehicles, and using the motor (and other components to varying degrees) is a very common subject of discussion.

Using any of the electronics (inverters, controllers, battery management systems) is complicated by the need to understand both the hardware and the software.

Thank you guys!

There is so much information than for a new person it is difficult to sort it out.

I'll have farther look, and check if it makes sense to buy a car for 3000? in order to use basically the motor, because I find them without batteries.

3000 Euro's is quite a high price for a car without battery... in the UK we typically see Leaf's in the 2500-5000 GBP range at auction for 2014+ crashed but repairable cars including the battery.

Here's a good example, a fully loaded 2014 Leaf Tekna which we estimated required 500 GBP in parts to repair :cool:

That sounds like a great deal. However, the steering wheel is not in the perfect side for driving here, if not I could go there and buy one

For those looking to get parts and cars, do so as soon as possible...

In the next coming months there will be a MASSIVE influx of EV parts and cars.

However they will neglect to tell you that these parts and cars have spent more than a week under water, and came from the greater Houston area.
