Hi All,If you want to retain AWD, you could use two Nissan Leaf motors - one for front and one for rear. Or two Prius motors (should be plenty of power with a pair of them).
I have a 2009 xc90 Sport diesel, and looking to do 2 stage conversion,
I love the car, and it covers all needs, including towing the caravan.
first to a hybrid, retaining the existing Diesel, and adding motor on the central axel, to keep all of the cars AWD functions.
The plan is to retain the engine and run on idle to drive the auxiliary kit, steering, brakes, heating / aircon etc, and also charge the battery.
Second later will be to remove the diesel all together and add a second motor to the gearbox input shaft.
As batteries get cheaper, this will become more practical.
there is ample room underneath for the prop shaft motor, and batteries and controller where the spare wheel would normally go (mine has no spare due to twin exhausts.)
I am a controls engineer by trade, and have ECU experience, so controls will be OK.
Has anyone actually done any work on the XC90 ? ?
