I've read that two of the advantages of using induction motors in EV conversions is that they are ubiquitous and not expensive. However, I find very few sellers of induction motors suitable for EV conversion (compared to DC equivalents), and the motors that I do find are much more expensive than their DC counterparts. Does anyone have suggestions for acquiring a suitable induction motor? I would like one that is compatible with a Sevcon Gen4 controller. It would be installed on a pontoon boat with a 48 to 72 volt bank.
