1987 VolkswagenCabriolet Electric Conversion

3 phase AC motor, Azure Dynamics DMOC445 controller & 188volt battery pack .

This was a projectKit that came from Electro Automotive. The kit was typically installed on the more popular Porsche 914 Chassis The Cabrioletoriginally had 20 x 8volt golf cart(Deep Cycle) batteries, for a whopping 1400 lbs of lead. The title is now an E title and once had HOV privileges until they expired. The carhas been garaged the entire time I have owned it since 2009 and currently the registration status is PNO. I recently resurrectedthe project, only to move it along to a good home. A re-purposed Hymotion -A123 5kw battery pack has replaced the lead in the sled and it is derivable! There are a few outstanding item other than cosmetics. Wheel Alignment, Charging profile and Controllerprogramming for the current pack or new packand a battery management system.
