Smart Electric Cars

There s almost 3 years that smart say they will intriduce an electric smart car on the market. So, my brother want one but he wait and wait but now it s enought. smart said the smart ED will be introduce in 2010, after in 2011 and now it s suposed to be in 2012. It s sooooooo long Anyway, we are tired to wait.

It s the reason why he buy a 2005 smart CDI to convert it to be an electric car.

The project is already start. Just for your fun, I ll show you some pictures of the projet. It s not a small one but it s a feasible one

So, enjoy

That s is the muffler. One of the thing we will dont need anymore and the thing by which no more poison gaz will be release

Now, the car is inside the garage to my brother workplace. We have removed the rear pannel and the rear bumper to revoved the diesel engine.

After I must removed the wheels, drain the coolant line, the engine block and unplugs all sensors, connectors and hoses likes fuel lines, air filter box, ECM, starter, alternator, glowplug relay, transmission harness etc.

After this, we unscrewed all motor mount to removed the complete powertrain. We did had the right tool to revoved the powertrain but. when you are resouceful, there s always a way to do the job We have used 2 hydrolic floor jack to take out the engine. It was nt easy but we did it

Now we can see the place we got to put an electric power train So, after the powertrain removing, we had reassemble the car without the engine because for the rest of the project the car could nt stay at my brother workplace.

The car was now reassemble but humm. how to take it back home. A towing is very expensive between southshore of Montrйal and St-Jean-sur-Richelieu. DAMN At the same time my brother say: DOM I have an idea I will make a tool to tow the car.

Do you think that your car can tow mine? Hй-hй-hй OF COURSE Hahhah Take a look at next pictures guys My brother is a genius

Smart Electric Cars

After 1h and half of working and metal tubbing cutting.

The PERFECT tool

So, we drived it up to home with the cruise ctrl at 100km/h and we made a little stop to the TimHorton after a busy evening

I ll post you more pictures when the project has evolved.

Have a good weekend
