  • Your skill level with auto mechanics and fabrication
15 odd years in and around Vehicles, self-employed metal fabricator.
  • The range you are hoping to get (how many miles/charge)
Ideally 100
  • What level of performance you are hoping to get
Close to stock HP, more than stock torque (OEM specs: 150 hp (112 kW) @ 6500 RPM,
140 lb⋅ft (190 N⋅m) @ 4000 RPM.

Looking at the 110 Nissan leaf motor seems to hit my criteria.

  • How much money you are willing to put into your project
Ideally under £6k
  • What parts you've already considered, if any.
Open to discussion and guidance (I am new!)
Keen to know if the Nimh batteries from a CRZ would be any good.
Will use OEM gearbox/ diff etc, adapt to motor.

Cheers :)
