Hi all. I have looked for similar questions here and have come up empty. I have been learning as much as I can about ev conversions to prep for my 1985 vw westfalia conversion.
I am wanting to maximize range as I am fine with this slow beast staying so. I have been looking at the hyper 9 or warp 9 motors with 130 or so maximum voltage.
the van weighs about 6k pounds and is not particularly aerodynamic but I would like to get as much range as possible. Doing some basic math I have been looking to get above 60kwh for the battery capacity. If I could get close to 200 miles of range out of this thing I think that would be sufficient.
Anyways. If anyone would want to share their knowledge or thought process for how to build out the battery pack for this type of vehicle and range application I’d appreciate some insight as well as suggestions on the feasibility.
