Volvo Electric Car with In-Wheel Motors. Only about 15% of the energy from
the fuel you put in your tank gets used to move your car down the road or
run useful accessories, such as air conditioning. The rest of the energy is
lost to engine and driveline inefficiencies and idling. Therefore, the
potential to improve fuel efficiency with advanced technologies is
enormous. With an Electric Car it costs just $2.00 per 100kms with MUCH
more performance than with petrol at $20.00 per 100kms.

BMW, along with Tesla, is doing what looked impossible a few years ago.
Electric cars are finally becoming desirable. Maybe it took the power of a
couple of premium brands to help them on the way. Or maybe it's the radical
looks and carbonfibre structure of the BMW i3? Either way, EVs are here to
stay. And if the BMW i3 is anything to go by, they're here to be enjoyed,
rather than endured.

EV West isn't like other electric car builders. They aren't trying to save
the planet from gasoline emissions, they are trying to build race cars
using electric technology for events that can best use that technology. The
Pikes Peak International Hillclimb, with a total driving distance of under

Gav's EV Conversion 12 - Installing the Battery Racks
At last! The battery racks are in!
After a some battery choice problems, some battery rack sizing problems and
a few delays I've finally got all three racks installed.
It took a while and there was many a stressed moment but at last the racks
The rear rack is bolted into the floor with 5mm thick steel bar underneath
to hold it in place.
The front racks are welded to the chassis (not the sub frame) to ensure the
crumple zones remain... well, crumpley in an accident. :)
Now it's time to get the control-box and Curtis Controller wired up and
visit the bank for the batteries.
It's full speed ahead! The conversion will be complete in no time!
