I have recently joined up to this page and I'm seeking a little bit of help (alot).
In a few months I will have a 2006 fiat grande punto 1.9 diesel sat on the drive doing nothing. I would love to have a go at turning it into an electric car. I'm aware that it isn't just as easy as that, but we've all got to start somewhere. So here goes with a few questions:
What sort of motor would I be best to use? Ideally no more than £1000 and hopefully looking to push out around 150hp (Not sure if that's too optimistic or not)
What sort of battery set up to start with?
What other components would I need to look at purchasing?
How would I run things like the power steering pump, brakes etc?
Hopefully someone has some info for me as I'm really excited to give this a go.
Thank you in advance
