I just added another EV to my collection, a professional conversion of a 2000 Mazda Miata. Here's some photos.https://1drv.ms/f/s!Aq1CGXNwtaP7hZIbTwvjg2D7YyvyMw
It was the dream retirement project of a gentleman who unfortunately passed away in the latter stages of the project, so his widow paid for its completion, but as she did most of her driving in a Nissan LEAF, the car sat too long and that inattention 'bricked the pack'. It is a 156V system with the Synkromotive 750 amp controller, a Zivan 240V charger, the uber-nice EVISION gauge by Metric Mind, and thirteen Valence UCharge XP Group 27- 12 Volt 130 Ah lithium batteries. I have some experience with these batteries and there's a chance of resurrection, so I've had them percolating on a 1 amp charge for several days now and hope for a test drive this weekend. They won't output any more than 500 amps, but would make a fine long-lived pack for a daily driver in the local area. As icing on the cake, my original i-MiEV 12V battery, which I prematurely replaced during the battery charger failure episode, was the right size for a Miata house battery and immediately woke up the car, with that beautiful EVISION display shining forth in technicolor and logging EVery amp-hour that enters the pack. http://www.metricmind.com/products/evision-2/
My daughter immediately relinquished her claims on MR BEAN in favor of this red roadster, to which my son replied- "Sure, I'd never give up the RX-7."
