No, i do not want more performance or range, i would like to have a system not depending from the fiat computer.
And becourse there are systems to convert a gasoline car to EV i would like to convert it to a similar system.

I'm not familiar with that particular vehicle, but converting an ev to an ev is often more difficult than an ICE to EV conversion, since EVs tend to be much more computerized.

If you're confident you want to go this route, I'd recommend looking into cheap DC motors paired with nissan leaf battery modules, which will be easily able to match the amount of power and range you had previously.

Another choice you have is just to reprogram/hack the existing fiat system, since you already have a perfectly good motor, inverter, batteries, BMS, etc. This route is likely to be much more challenging.

I would like to skip the fiat computer, for that i have a solution.
I'm just looking what i need for a complete AC system and if possible by use of the existing engine.
