Not sure if this is the right section, but would like to start a discussion about getting rid of the ICE and going full electric. I fully admit that most, if not all EV conversions in the past have been shit, but I feel the tide is turning! I also know that EV's are not as amazing for the enviroment as they claim yet, but it's the start of the change and it will get better in the future. Over the past year i've been reading up more and more on what it would take to convert, unfortuantly it's not up to were I would like it to be yet but that doesn't stop me from talking about/researching/planning for when I will be converting. For me I would like: A conversion that is at most 50-60kg more than the current ICE set up (obviously lighter is better) Have a range of 450+km Have a power output that is nothing mind blowing but as good as an average modified ICE engine Direct drive so no gearbox, gearstick or clutch Regen braking Have fast charge capabilities of under 20 minutes for 80% charge Come in under $20k fitted (hopefully $15k) I'm currently loving what https://www.electricclassiccars.co.uk/ are doing with their shop truck (it's a DC), I don't know the torque figure but 450hp & a 100kWh battery pack, they are expecting a range of 200-250 miles (321-400km). The battery pack weighs in at 400kg and they have fitted it with no lose of luggage space. Tech is coming online for fast charging, see links - https://newatlas.com/porsche-450-kw-fastcharge-prototype/57659/ & https://smallcaps.com.au/porsche-new-electric-vehicle-taycan-increased-range-faster-charging/ But I feel the change will come when solid state batteries will become available at a good price - https://www.alphr.com/science/1008867/solid-state-battery-dyson-toyota So what are your thoughts on the whole EV change? I already know there will be a lot of people here negative on the subject, the same as the rest of the world, everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but the change in new cars is coming, how far it will trickle down will be interesting, I'm excited for the future.
