|Location||Aalborg, North Denmark Denmark map|
|Vehicle||1992 Kewet Eljet 2 |
90's concept for standard acid batteries -
pretty much a forklift on steroids
- based on standard industrial parts
|Motor||Thrige-Titan 7,5 kw |
Low consumption - $1 for a 50 mile charge
Bigger motor = larger consumption = more battery weight/cost
|Drivetrain||Motor coupled to a Fiat Panda 4 speed manual gear box. |
Leave it in 4th for basic driving - 3rd is for uphill acceleration - 2nd for climbing curbs - 1st for towing trucks on hills
Updated to 500 amp
|Batteries||4 Deep cycle for trains and buses, 12.00 Volt, Lead-Acid, Flooded|
Weight w acid 69,0 Kg = 152 pounds
Ampere at 5 hours 180 Ah.
Ampere at 20 hours 240 Ah.
Size in mm 519x270x240
2 units under seats, 2 under front hood.
|System Voltage||48 Volts|
10 amp with electronic control of charge and trickle
|DC/DC Converter|| Mascot 12-48 |
All lighting switched to led. Big difference in consumption - from 55w to 2w in one headlight - but hi-beam lights are still with halogens
|Top Speed||45 MPH (72 KPH)|
Keeps up with traffic but not for highways
Increasing voltage to 60 will help
|Acceleration||Keeps up with city traffic|
|Range||30 Miles (48 Kilometers)|
Never take it over 30 miles and the batteries will last very long.
Kewet 2 has an economy control dial - at best setting and economic thinking (accelation etc) it will give you 50 miles before batteries are ½ discharged (optimal)
