With much reluctance the time has come that I would like to move on to my next conversion. To do this I need to make space and sell the Electrolux, my electric Toyota Hilux.
I am holding a reverse auction on the AEVA site if you are interested.
See this site for the auction. Starting price is $5000, reducing by $200 per week.
It is the first road legal industrial AC conversion in Australia.
50 x 20Ah batteries
ASEA 15kw 4 pole aluminium frame motor
Danfoss 5042 VFD
Peak power is 48kw, Peak torque is 360Nm
rego till March (need to check)
located in Sydney Northern Beaches
It has been on the road for 18 months.
The batteries are good for only about 9 km on a warm day. The inverter sometimes takes a while to start in damp weather, but it always starts after about 5 mins to warm up.
This would be an excellent EV for someone to build on and develop as it is already registered as an EV. Or use as a technology test platform for a company.
There is plenty of room under the bonnet and in the tray to easily experiment with different configurations without having to shoehorn in components.
With a 100v motor rewind, a tritium controller and a 320v pack of 40-60Ah Lithium this would be a great vehicle.
