Electric Vehicle Conversion Kit For Vw Frame For Sale

Electric Vehicle Conversion Kit For Vw Frame

Electric Vehicle Kit - VW VW Electric Vehicle

Electric Vehicle Conversion Kit VW Bug Frame


This is an electric vehicle conversion kit with the essential parts needed to make your car run on electricity. This kit can be installed in one day if you have a little mechanical experience. It is designed to work on a VW bug standard transmission, and will work with any air cooled VW based frame or kit car from 1952 to 1979. Automatic VWs are not recommended with use of this kit. This kit is designed to be clutchless with the VW, but you still do shift by just letting off of the throttle pedal when shifting. After installed, the VW will get top speeds of 45-55 MPH once the batteries and motor are worn in and will get a range of 15-40 miles according to driving habits, etc. Average range would be 25 to 30 miles on a charge once everything is worn in, but this all depends on what batteries you use and how many, etc. The parts included in this sale are: (#1) 40 HP peak (12 HP continuous) series motor measuring 6.7 in diameter x 12.28 inches long. (#2) An adaptor plate that matches the VW standard transmission to the series motor. (#3) A splined shaft coupler that couples the electric motor the transmission output shaft. (#4) A motor controller by Alltrax model # 7245 (72 volts 450 amps) (#5 ) A throttle box that attaches to the gas pedal throttle cable. (0-5k PB-5)

#1 Series Motor

This motor is made by D&D motor systems #ES-15A, and its rated at twelve Horse-Power continuous and forty HP Peak at 72 VDC. This motor is reversible, weighs 62 lbs. and measures 6.7 " dia. x 12.28 " long. Electric cars are driven by large electric motors usually rated between 3.5 and 28 horsepower. For those accustomed to gas engines, this may not seem like much power, but the rating systems used for gas engines and electric motors are so different that the numbering system is almost meaningless. Gas engines are rated at their peak hp, electric motors are rated at their continuous hp. The peak hp of an electric motor is usually 8 to 10 times its continuous rating. A 30 hp electric motor will generally perform like a 50-75 hp gasoline engine in a same weight vehicle.

Series motors are known for having very high torque at start up, or zero RPM. This makes the series motor excellent for acceleration and also makes it possible to have a vehicle without a clutch. This kit has no clutch so it can simply be driven just like an automatic transmission.

#2 Adaptor Plate

The adaptor plate is bolted to the electric motor with four 1" x 3/8 " bolts. It matches the bell housing of the VW standard transmission. It’s made from mig welding 1/4" steel plate.

#3 Coupler

The shaft coupler is what slides onto the electric motor which uses your clutch disc from your VW. Your clutch disc, which is your splined piece, is bolted to this coupler with 8 hardened allen screws provided. This is what then slides onto your transmission shaft of your VW. Depending on whether you rivet holes are large enough on your clutch disc (different brands) will determine if you have to drill them bigger or not for attaching it to your shaft coupler. When the motor, adaptor plate and coupler are assembled together, the unit can then be slid onto the transmission, with four bolts to the transmission housing, and the mechanical work is finished. This part can literally be done in a few minutes. There is a 3/16 keyway that is 2 ½" long with a 1/4" allen set screw on the coupler. These couplers are machined in a lathe made with industrial grade steel.

#4 Controller

Included in this kit is a state-of-the-art PWM (pulse width modulation) MOSFET (metal oxide semiconductor field effect transistor). These controllers, model # SPM-72400, are made by Alltrax and are fully programmable. You can even monitor the motor parameters while driving using a laptop computer. For more information and software see their website.

#5 Throttle Box

Also included in this kit is the 0-5k ohm throttle box that is design to work with the Alltrax controller. This is PB-5 type and will need to be mounted in the engine compartment and connected to the foot pedal throttle cable.
