Hi everyone,

after not converting a car for 7 years, I wanted the best possible motor for my 2nd conversion and started to dig into Teslas CAN bus and learned how to control their drive units.
To make the registration progress in Germany a bit simpler, I am using an off-the-shelf, custom programmable industrial grade CAN-ECU, which has the Hardware approval in Europe (E12) and usually is used in heavy duty off-road machines.

As the Drive Unit is not being modified in any way, the ECU just simulates the rest of the Model S and as it has the E-certificate, the approval in Europe should be pretty straight forward.

I will be using the small drive unit in my Delorean conversion, but we also tested the controller with the other Tesla Drive units and all tests have been successful, up to the 475 kW, 650 Nm Performance Drive Unit :)
All Drive and regen limits can be customized of course and we are working on implementing the HV Relais and recharge relay control.

We have some limited number of drive units in stock at the moment and are also selling the ones, we tested on.

If anyone is interested, just drop me a message..

There are three different big Drive Unit types:
  • Base 330 kW; 450 Nm
  • Sport 400 kW; 600 Nm
  • Performance 475 kW; 650 Nm
Prices for Europe are Base 5500 Euro, Sport 6300 Euro, Performance 8900 Euro. Average delivery time in Europe is 2 weeks at the moment.

Only have Base and Performance versions here at the moment, so Sport would have two more weeks delivery time.

Shipping to Texas seems to be around 800 Euro air freight.

Hi Marc,
maybe there's no-one to answer as its been a while since this was posted.
Are you still tampering with EV's?
I live in Germany too, and am toying with the idea of electrifying a large 1958-1964 US convertible. (land yacht)
I believe such a car to be a good base due to the ample space for batteries.
As you see to have some experience I would love to have a chat with you.
