Electric Vehicle Conversion Kit For Vw Frame For Sale
Electric Vehicle Kit - VW
VW 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.
The shaft coupler slides onto the electric motor and
matches the splines of the transmission shaft. There is a 3/16 keyway that is 2
½" long with a 1/4" allen set screw. These couplers are machined in a lathe made
with industrial grade steel. The splined piece is bolted to this coupler with
six hardened allen screws. When the motor, adaptor plate and coupler are
assembled together the unit can be slid onto the transmission, with four bolts
to the transmission housing, and the mechanical work is finished. This can
literally be done in a few minutes.
Included in this kit is a state-of-the-art PWM (pulse width
modulation) MOSFET (metal oxide semiconductor field effect transistor). These
model #7245, 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.
General assembly instructions and wiring
diagrams for this kit is included with this sale. We have built many electric cars, so any or all questions are welcomed.
