Just starting to learn about EV's. I have been kicking around an idea for an elwctric people mover. Some questions for the experts. General stats are, 18'x8' deck (like a flatbed hay wagon), pickup truck front and rear axles (probably 3/4 ton), manual transmission and transfer case (most likely from same truck), empty weight 2500-3000 lbs ish, fully laden with people 6000-7000 lbs ish, working speed 5 mph, top speed 10 mph, range on full charge would be great to get 5 miles. What kind of motor should I look for? Is a forklift motor over/ underkill? What speed should the motor turn at to be it's most efficient? I envision a solar panel mounted above the driver and a small gas generator mounted to run a charger if need be. It would be used for hay rides at a tree farm, parades, etc. What do the experts think, totally out of my gourd or doable?
