Daihatsu Electric Cars

For many years I have had an in small electric traction goes back 30 years or when I worked for a company made golf buggies and the same time my dad and I built a 7 1/4 gauge battery electric for our model railway, over the we built a number of different buggies and even a motor which were all quite

Today I drive a battery car which was born back in when the cost of fuel a huge price hike and I had not done much in the field the previous few years I was aware of was available on the market and I can assure you it is not science these days the you need to do it with is readily

The first car we put together (we relates to a amount of input from people around the world to get the one up and running) was the conversion of an old Suzuki which had been powered by a 1.3 4 cylinder engine, this was replaced with a single 48 Etek axial flux magnet motor bolted up to a conversion adaptor on the gearbox housing using the old flywheel and attached to the electric motor with a taper lock assembly.

Using 6 X 8 volt buggy flooded plate acid traction batteries it extremely well in that it had a 50 + range and would do 70 kilometres per but the motor ran rather hot and the brush wore out too quickly. I was recommended to add motor and this solved the as then the 2 motors ran cold. The problem lay in the fact the car was a bit too heavy but as it was an I was not fussed.

In its lifetime we covered 4000 running to the post office and etc with an operating cost was a joke by comparison with the of fuel.

Along the way in 2006 I a client do a conversion on a Subaru which was a much smaller and car and we fitted it with a 72 volt Perm 132 motor and 6 X 12 volt AGM Glass Mat valve regulated batteries which turned out to be perfect as it would do 83 kph and was much zippy, just a delight to

Recently I have pensioned off the old and converted a newer car I acquired, a Suzuki Alto panel van is very similar to the little and the Daihatsu Mira /handivan in their power plants are a 3 cylinder engine and are about the vehicles you can find on the roads in To see pictures of the new car which is much click here.

If you are interested in having a go at doing one the first thing to do is get a copy of the Bulletin 74 from the Department of as you must follow these for it to pass inspection approval.

obviously you must find a vehicle and strip all the unnecessary out of it to get it as light as you can.

The most task is to make or have an adaptor plate to bolt the motor up to the gearbox and retain the

You will need the electric (a 72 volt PERM 132) and an controller unit to suit, I have purchased a number of a company in the US called www.electricmotorsport.com or and get them to post it over.

You will need a 5k ohm throttle can be obtained from Bylong Pty Ltd in NSW Ph 0294394177.

The bank 6 off 12 volt 100 amp hour Glass Mat sealed lead batteries can be sourced from the reputable commercial battery There are cheaper combinations and more expensive battery you can choose from but value for against performance these to be the best. If you do go with the AGMs there is not so much of a problem fitting them in a container in the compartment as they don’t gassing problems or acid it should still be externally though.

You will also a big gutsy manual isolating which can be sourced from an electrician.

You can get analogue panel meters www.futurlec.com to build up your and a 200 amp shunt from any Jaycar

If your car has power assist then you will have to a small vacuum tank out of pvc pipe fittings and find a vac pump I have used a control pump of a SAAB and them off Ebay.

You will heavy cable to link thing up which I sourced a welding supplies company .

The and most expensive component you need is a battery charger. are a very sophisticated piece of being a fully programmable switch mode power which can be sourced from a called M+H Power Systems Pty Ltd Rowville in Victoria phone 03 be warned though, this may put you off as cost up around $2000 but it is a one off and if you are going to keep the car for a long then it is worthwhile.

So if you live in a place were the lie of the is predominantly flat the speed is 50 Kph you want to drive a car that is quiet and super cheap to run it is well worth while at building an electric vehicle.
