Vehicle1986 Honda CRX
This is a newly converted electric vehicle with a 5 speed transmission which has been built to be sold.
MotorD&D Motor Systems, Inc. #ES-15A Series Wound DC
It is rated at twelve Horse-Power continuous and forty HP Peak at 72 VDC. It can be run as high as 144 VDC for higher HP. Weighs 62 lbs. and measures 6.7 " dia. x 12.28 " long.
DrivetrainManual drivetrain but it is a clutchless system. Letting off on the accelerating pedal to shift is all is needed.
ControllerAlltrax 7245 (24-72Vdc) 450amp
Included in this kit is a state-of-the-art PWM (pulse width modulation) MOSFET (metal oxide semiconductor field effect transitor). and are fully programable. You can even monitor the motor parameters while driving using a laptop computer. For more information and software see their website.
Batteries9 Energizer 001194, 8.00 Volt, Lead-Acid, Flooded

System Voltage72 Volts
ChargerSchumacher SE-1072

HeaterThe car doesn't have a heater but you can get those propane ceramic heaters that are flameless that have 2000 BTU to 3000 BTUs of heat for around $60. Also you can use electric 12 volt heaters that plug into the cigaret lighter slot. The venilation ducts and fan still are workable if wanting to make for use.
Instrumentation0-150 VDC Volt Meter
50mv-500 amp Meter
Top Speed50 MPH (80 KPH)
Speeds up to 50 MPH can be reached, which is what I got with this car with recent testing. It will get between 25 to 50 miles on a charge depending on driving habit, your speed, etc. Faster speeds (55 to 60 MPH) can probably be obtained in warmer weather being that there is a 25% loss in efficiency with the batteries in cold weather which we are currently having. Also the brushes on the motor are new and once they are worn in it will pick up speed and range.
AccelerationGood acceleration up to 40 mph as a normal fuel engine would. Then up to 50 mph it takes a little more time.
Range25 Miles (40 Kilometers)
You can get range of 25 to 50 miles according to driving habits and many other factors; weight of car, how many batteries use and type, driving terrain, driving habits, etc. before having to recharge. One other thing is the less amps you use the farther the range you will get. You can control that by shifting to lower gears at the higher speeds. It works like an automatic, different than your normal shifting of a standard car. As the new batteries cycle through after 16 to 20 charges there will also be a noticeable difference in the range per charge.
Watt Hours/Mile240 Wh/Mile
If down shifting while maintaining higher speeds will maintain 100 amp draw.
