A 1972 SAAB 96 Electric

With everyone going these days, it does not me when I received the following from a colleague. Apparently, a Enthusiast by the name of Christen in New York, has recently outfitted a 1972 SAAB 96 into a on Electric Vehicle or EV .

This is not the first Saab or vintage that has had the necessary modifications in to run with electric power. in 1993, Walter Kern, a by trade and also the creator of the Quantum. designed and re-engineered a SAAB Sonett III to run on electrical

Here are some additional covering this project are of particular historic importance this project: Pierson to Environmental Forum. Newsbeat 53

It that Duke University had an interest in also converting a SAAB Sonett III, I am unsure if Walter Kern Hosmer s work inspired to do the same.

All in all, it seems that has been a lot of interest these in people converting their from conventional fuel to more economical and environmental such as electricity. Just at the progress Mark Ward in has made just this with his new generation Saab 900 Saabrina .

Leave it up Saab who hold the record as some of the intelligent and progressive automobile and the world and you have projects these cropping up everywhere

I do have regenerative braking, is a wiring modification of the basic which is transparent to the traction until you toggle a switch on the signal and energize the motor changing the motor into a The degree of braking is based on the s demand (how far you depress the and the batteries ability to absorb energy, you would not want to out of your hill top garage a fully charged battery and expect the regen to slow you much.

Springs and struts are upgraded as the car 1,000 pounds more the original V4 model, tire is about 50 lbs all around, 6 batteries in (straddling the motor), 2 in the back (I cut 13 out of the middle of the back seat and 8 in the where the gas tank and spare were located.

Top speed on the is around 65 mph, and the range is 75 miles. It cost me about to do the restoration and conversion. I think I about $3000 on the restoration and job.
