So you were able to source a coupler for the Honda transmission
Yes in a sense but not entirely.So you were able to source a coupler for the Honda transmission
I definitely suggest looking around in DIY Electric Car Forums then.I love what you do to this car. It is a rolling project. Once one thing is completed, you build on that to turn it into another project.
Recently, my wife has expressed here renewed interest in converting her DX into an EV. We are here in Washington state right now. I have been looking at what EV West has going on and plan on using their setups as a template for her DX.
This is the part that makes the "Leaf" so fascinating (and personally I don't like Nissan).Yeah, the EV conversion market is so much better than it was ten years or so ago when we first looked into this. The issue is that She needs to get at least 120 on a charge and she needs fast charging. We live on an island and Seattle is about 123 miles away if we cannot take the ferry. She has a PMC TLX as her daily but, as a traveling nurse, the CRX would be more ideal in regard to operational costs. Plus she does not want to keep putting a lot of miles on her PMC. She used to do a 200+ mile commute daily.
Thanks for the tip on the site. I will start looking over options with her. I don't think she minds the transmission delete since she has not had to shift in the TL or the TLX as her dailies.
Yes, the 40kwh battery, 30, 24, are physically the same size. Nissan basically improved the battery and put more power into the same space. Only the 60kwh battery takes up a larger footprint thus getting 220 miles of range.Do the 40KWh batteries occupy the same footprint?
Also, congrats on getting he wheels spinning again. I just finished going through your build on the DIYECar forvm. Very inspirational. It motivated me to work on my CRX last Saturday. Have not touched it in 4 years. Need to button up the wiring, sap EX knucles and brakes, and do an IACV conversion to make her whole again. Then she gets and S1 AWD kit.
I'm currently unable to fully register it (due to lack of smog check lol) so I need to take the car to the BAR station of California's air resources board to get it inspected, and updated as an electric car.A lot of motivation, time and commitment!
Any target date for this to be wrapped and made roadworthy, with the car completely back together?
I've thought about an EV conversion for years. But I really seriously started this more August 2021 when I bought the Leaf. Bought parts. Then disassembled the cars December 2021. And if I didn't scope creep and change plans, this would have been running for inspection in March. But my endless plans delayed me until now.Nice job man. I am glad to see that it is all working. From plans to final implementation, how much time would you say that you have put into this project?
I definitely wanted a Honda e but unfortunately its not available to us.Oh yeah, no project is ever finished but I am glad that your were able to reach the original goal of inspection ready.
I am thinking for purity reasons, maybe we should wait until Honda/Acura come out with a true EV, not a GHondaM EV. If I could score a crashed Honda e right now from Europe or Japan, that would be perfect to start the project right now.
