Full Electric Car Home Conversion - 1988 Pontiac Fiero Part 1

The process of converting my Pontiac Fiero to 144 volt electric car. Full video documentation of the process along with a few test drives. It runs on 12, 12 volt Trojan deep cycle lead acid batteries. Powered by a 9.1 in. dia. Advanced DC motor with a 500 amp Curtis controller. Part 2 and 3 will be coming soon. GO ELECTRIC!

An Electric Vehicle Conversion in a Garden Shed
This video, made for the Mechanicsburg Earth Day Festival, Saturday, April 24, 2010, in Mechanicsburg, PA, is an overview of my electric vehicle (EV) conversion from beginning to end covering many of the critical parts of the electric Saturn project. I had the video looping on a TV next to the exhibit of my Saturn EV conversion. My hope was to draw people to my booth with this video, but the picture on the TV was too hard to see in the outside light and the video itself was just too long, 10 minutes. It was simply the wrong venue to play this kind of a video -- lesson learned. All in all I spoke with a very diverse group of people about my EV conversion and electric car technology in general. This was the first public showing of my electric car, it was a good day great day. For more information about my electric Saturn, please visit www.zuglet.com





ELECTRIC CAR - Part 1
http://tinyurl.com/electric2-car It isn't really a complicated process to do an electric car conversion, but you will need to obtain certain specialized parts. You will need: an electric motor, deep cycle batteries, a controller, a battery charger, an adaptor kit, and various other small parts. But first, you are going to need a vehicle that you can do your electric car conversion with. Any vehicle can be used for this project, but some work better than others. Heading the list are small cars and trucks, as they are light and strong. Your first consideration as shown in the detailed plans is to find the lightest vehicle that will still do the job of hauling you and whatever cargo you carry around. Next, you will want a large DC motor that will produce power for your electric car. The larger the motor, the more power your electric car will have. Don't worry that it will be slow either. Many people have the wrong impression of electric cars; they accelerate as fast as any vehicle on the road and travel at least 50 mph. What about batteries? You will need to locate about 16-20 deep cycle batteries for your car as well. The plans outline sources of batteries, even free batteries that you can find with a little effort. The same source will probably have free DC motors too. It's just a matter of asking. Why do you need this many batteries? In order to achieve a range of up to 100 miles on a single charge. A controller is needed to fix the amount of current flowing from the batteries to the motor which determines how fast you go. The controller is connected to your old gas pedal linkage for smooth control of the vehicle. In order to charge your batteries between trips, you will need an on-board battery charger. That way you can just plug it into any common AC circuit and get charged up again. Doesn't this sound like fun? Isn't it time you got started on your own conversion project?





My Civic EV Electric Car Project Part 3 Our AC-50 Electric Motor Kit
2001 Honda Civic Electric Car Project. Our AC-50 Electric Motor Kit. Just alittle video to show the components I have selected to drive our electric car down the road. This is a well thought out kit that I have seen in use and have seen relentlessly tested! This exact same kit and others are available at http://www.evtv.me/ Our motor @ 108v at 650a up to 3800 RPM will deliver 121ftlbs of torque and 76hp. Its designed and works best in cars under 3000lbs. Subscribe to Tomswonderfulworld watch and learn as I build an Electric Car.
