I converted this 1998 Saturn SC2 to electric using the Electro-Automotive AC kit in 2009. Original battery pack PbAcid (T-1275), replaced with LiFePO4 in 2012. Even with the lighter batteries, the AC24LS/DMOC445 is inadequate for highway driving. Located in Boston area.
Drive: Azure Dynamics AC24LS with DMOC445 controller, connected to original manual transmission. I have all the DMOC files for this installation.
Batteries: 50 CALB CA 100 AH cells in series, 165 V, with copper busbars. Located in insulated/heated box in back seat area (back seat removed). I have 2 extra cells, never used.
On-board charger: Zivan NG-3 programmed for 175 V out, 220 VAC in. J1772 connector with spoofing module to allow charging by Level 2 charging stations. Homemade circuit to shut down charger when cells are full.
DC/DC: Dual Mean Well 645W power supplies (total 86 amps).
Miscellany: Goodyear Assurance Fuel Max tires with plenty of tread. ZEVA Fuel Gage driver. Stock tachometer tied to Motor RPM. Ceramic heater mounted in stock heater core controlled by HVAC controls, not enough power for New England winters and the large swept windshield. VW vacuum pump for power brakes.
The batteries are 9 years old but still work well. The car is getting rusty and needs brake work. Used as a commuter until COVID.
Asking $1500. Buyer responsible for shipping or pick-up. The car is drivable and registered as an EV but not currently inspected.
