Vehicle2008 Toyota 3 door Hatckback Yaris
This company built a terrible EV. The more I learn about it the worse job this company did when building it. Do not consider this company for anything related to EV's. They say any publicity is good, so I left their web page on top but don't buy if you know what is good for you. Every one is gone who built my car and their is not a person left who knows anything about the cars that were built.Toyota Yaris "LIV Wise" Made by Hybrid Technologies. They are now known as EV Innovations. Name change again to Li-ion Motors. Name changes for stock manipulation.
MotorAzure Dynamics/Solectria Solectria 3-Phase AC
The motor is an air cooled AC24 Solectria, single output, 47kW peak, 3-Phase brushless AC Induction Motor. Operating rpm range of 4.5k rpm nominal and 12k rpm maximum speed, with a torque range of 30nm nominal and 74mn peak.
DrivetrainThis is a one speed. The original transmission is not used. Front wheel drive. The T-1200 gearbox from Solectria still leaks as of 2/15/10 after being repaired once and replaced once. The leaking was caused by Li-ion Motors incorrectly installing it. The gear box is clunky when power is applied, then let off, going forward and backward.
ControllerAzure Dynamics/Solectria DMOC 445 2
The Motor Controller is a waterproof 3-Phase inverter. It has a nominal operating range of 336 to 120 VDC (Voltage Direct Current) with a max. Current output of 280A rms.
Batteries80 Kokam 100Ah, 4.15 Volt, Lithium-Polymer
The pack size is 33KWh. 80 cells 6 packs. Closer to 32.8 KWH. I have now began to learn more about amps x voltage = watts.
System Voltage333 Volts
ChargerBrusa NLG 513 air cooled
The Charger is 110/220 VAC (Voltage Alternating Current) input, 250-500 VDC (Voltage Direct Current) 12.5 Amp output
HeaterHV powered water heater/pump. The Heater Coil is powered by the HV battery. The Heater Coil has an operating range of 400 VDC to 200 VDC. The Water Pump is operated by 12V battery power
DC/DC Converter V-Infinity
400 to 150 VDC and has an output of 13.8VDC nominal and can handle loads up to 75Amps
InstrumentationNone as the screen no longer operates. it was made to hobby grade not automotive. The LCD Touch Screen is for monitoring the operation of your vehicle. It has 5 screens.
MAIN: Displays Miles Left, MPH, Percentage of Battery Charge and Power Consumption.
VOLT: Displays each individual cell voltage including the minimum and maximum voltage of the high and low cells
TEMP: Displays each battery packs temperature and the temperature of the highest pack.
TRIP: Displays Drive Time, Distance Traveled, Average Speed, Total Energy used in Watt Hours, Integrated Regen Energy produced and Average Efficiency in Watt Hours. (The trip feature never worked) A bit of false advertisment here.
SET: Is used for programming and calibration. This feature is ONLY to be used by Hybrid Technologies personnel and so is worthless now.
Top Speed80 MPH (128 KPH)
Car is very torky between 30-55 mph. Picks up very well from 55 to 65. From 65 to 80 it takes a while to wind up. It is running pretty hard between 65 and 70. A top cruising speed of 69 mph was finally recommended by Li ion Motors.
Acceleration0-60 mph in 12 seconds
I dd some speed test running approx 80 - 85 mph on a hot day and I believe the controller shut down on the hwy, it quickly recovered. It is now recommended to cruis at 69 mph though I can go faster to pass.
Range145 Miles (233 Kilometers)
7/4/09 Was in a 4th of July parade and went 133 miles on one charge, mixed city driving approx 50 miles at 55mph. August 3 2010, did range check. Mixed city driving with at least 50 miles at 55 mph driving with the AC on and the car went 145 miles.
Watt Hours/Mile273 Wh/Mile
300 volts x 50 amps, doing 55 mph on level ground. (300*50/55)
EV Miles
Start:50 Miles (80 Kilometers)
Current:34,175 Miles (54,987 Kilometers)
Total:34,125 Miles (54,907 Kilometers)
