the project has not changed since the last post mostly due my participation in the formula hybrid project.
Except that the adaptor in the picture bellow will be replaced by something more solid!
Don’t worry! this project will be finish and will roll on the street. Street that have now welcomed Leafs and Volts !
I tried the Leaf last week and I am speechless.
The car is very powerful:forget the Versa , there is nothing comparable! If you remove the traction control , you’ll have to buy a new set of tire pretty fast!
Handling is pretty good as well considering the higher mass – 23 Kwh batteries pack is heavy ! and Lithium air battery are not expected for a couple of year!
The user interface is excellent : SOC , SOH , remaining distance, radius of autonomy displayed on GPS.
Get one! it is unbelievable. ~32000$ and never a drop of gas again!
I plan to test all my powertrain system on the Veon, but I might change vehicle. The 1999 Neon has been stored for more than 2 year now. There were no rust at the beginning , but now all the braking system must be changed.
there is more investment to do in the car than changing it.
I will be looking for a new vehicle later on , but I would like RWD car . BMWs , Mustang , S2000 , Soltice , miata , S10 … anyway
some new stuff to buy soon :
Delphi DC-DC converter … or Vicor might do the job as well
Current way , brusa , or charger
aerovironment or clipper creek EVSE
oh and battery ; apparently, it might help for a bev…!
I spotted many supplier of lifepo4 battery. normally about 1000$ /kwh BMS included.
I’ll do my own bms so I might save big on this.
