My name is Arjan, I'm 26 years old and I'm from the Netherlands.
I've always wanted to convert my first car to electric, but because of regulations and costs it just wasn't feasible.
I recently acquired a Zotye 5008 EV, which is a converted Daihatsu Terios. It has at least one cell that is way too low compared to the rest.
The car cost me €2750 but there is a subsidy going on here for second hand EVs which got me €2000 back. All in all a fun project to learn about EV's, together with my father.
I have a background in small elelctric vehicles like e-skateboards, e-scooters and electric unicycles.
My goal with this car is to fix it and drive it around for short trips. Groceries, visiting friends and driving to local ATB tracks to hopefully beat my (and others) track records on my electric unicycle.
Because my knowledge is limited I can hopefully find answers here.
