All Electric MR2

This is an interesting subject and one that I am currently working on.
The problem with an AC traction motor drive (200kW) motor is the high cost of the controller. I will provide the link to an EV site that has converted a BMW 3 series to all electric. http://www.evdrive.com/BMW_project/ACmotor.html

My approach is a little different where I do not plan to reinvent the wheel but utilize existing technologies. I am now working on acquiring an insurance written off Chevy Volt and take all of the drive train components, batteries and conditioning generator/engine and install in my 92 MR2.

Funding and time is always an issue and I will be looking for sponsors to get this up off the ground.

Already there is a totaled Volt? Well, good luck and post photos.

Car lights and accessories

If you are not satisfied with your factory bulbs, then it’s time to choose such a reliable custom headlights manufacturer as KENSUN. Upgrade your customers’ cars with easy-install kits lights that last longer and shine brighter. Please visit Kensun online store
