VW Sport Beetle 1973 Electric Vehicle (EV)

This is a newly converted plugin electric 1973 Sport VW Beetle with a 4 speed transmission.  Not many of the Sports Bugs where made.  The new electric motor is made by D&D motor systems #ES_15A, and its rated at twelve HP continuous and forty HP Peak at 72 VDC. It has a Alltrax 72 VDC controller that can be wired to a USB port of a computer / laptop for stats, adjustments, etc. with a RS232 cable found at Radio Shack. There are nine new 8 volt batteries that are installed in this vehicle running at 72 volts. It will come with a onboard new 5-10 amp (adjustable voltage 12-72 VDC) battery charger and a 1-2 amp float charger for the accessory battery. It has installed a DC volt meter and amp meter on the dash for easy readings. This car will out perform any GEM car by its speed being that they only get 25 MPH top. Top speed will be up to 52 MPH that can be reached with this EV, which is what I got with this car with recent testing, but average speeds at this time is around 45 mph.  Faster speeds (55 to 65 MPH) can probably be obtained when the brushes on the motor wear in being that they are new.  Once they are worn in it will pick up speed and range.  It will get between 25 to 50 miles on a charge depending on driving habit, your speed, driving terrain, cold weather, etc.  As the batteries cycle through after 16 to 20 charges there will also be a noticeable difference in farther range per charge.  Currently it is getting 15 to 20 miles on a charge until the car wears in more. Once it wears in it will get 30 to 35 miles on a charge on the average.  Normal car parts for this car are easily accessible at your local auto dealers, which is not the same with the GEM cars.  All the electric parts that are made with this EV are made here in the USA.  The Alltrax Controller used has a two year warrantee and Series Motor has a two year warrantee also. This is a great run around electric car for most your local driving including driving to work.  The 72 volt charger has been added under the front hood and the plugs come out of the old fueling lid.  Recent studies show that most people average 29 miles per day in driving.  This car is sold as-isIf you have any specific questions about the car, additional information or additional pictures, please email Allen (Private seller) at  a2012g@yahoo.com.
