Design your own.

There a few things that will determine the component choices.
  • Vehicle weight - Vehicle weight determines motor size, controller, and greatly affects range.
  • Range desired - Will determine the battery pack size, and have amajor effect on the cost.
  • Speed desired - Volts equals speed.  To be freeway capable requires at least a 120 volts.

Motor choices based on vehicle weight.
  • 2,000 lbs. or less - 8" or larger DC motor.  AC - HPEVS AC-50 or larger.
  • 3,000 lbs. or less - 9" or larger DC motor.  AC - HPEVS AC-50 or larger.
  • 4,000 lbs. or less - 11" or larger DC motor.  AC - HPEVS AC-75, AC-35x2 or larger.

For a freeway capable vehicle, you will want 120 volts or more, and a 500 amp or greater controller.

How to calculate range.
  • Take the weight of the vehicle (after conversion) and divide by 10.  This is the watt-hours per
    mile to move your vehicle down the road.
  • Determine your pack size.  Take the voltage of the pack and multiple times the amp-hour
    capacity of the cells used.  (Example - 44 cells = 145.2 volts) (44 x 3.3 volts)  So if you used
    180 Ah cells, the pack capacity would be 145.2 volts x 180 Ah = 26,136 watt-hours.
  • You do not want to discharge your cells below 80%, so that means that our pack capacity is
    equal to 80% of 26,136 watt-hours which is 20,908.8 or 20.9 kWh.
  • Next, divide the pack capacity (20,909) by the watt-hours per mile and you have your range.
By using this formula, you can determine the range you can expect from any given set-up.  
Remember, more cells increases the voltage and weight.  We recommend watching EV4U's videos
or attend a Workshop before purchasing components.  Rule #1:  Do your homework.
