The challenge with the Leaf motor, compared to the various motors usually used for DIY conversions, is that there are no readily available parts to adapt the motor shaft to the VW transaxle input, or the motor housing to the transaxle case... assuming that you're using the VW transaxle.Hi, I am from europe and I am interested in vw bug conversion to EV.
What is your thoughts about nissan leaf donor?
Is it has some difficulties compared to AC50 ev conversion? ...
You could use the whole Leaf drive unit (motor with transaxle), but it mounts very differently from the VW engine and transaxle, and sits further forward, so it wouldn't reasonably fit in the VW.
