The only thing I can see is that it might be a bit overkill, but that won't hurt anything.

There are also some other good possibilities, raised by this idea. For example - how about electric power steering?? I know for a lot of conversions, the whole power steering issue is a big power-hog PIA. Also, I'm looking at how to heat/cool my EV. The available options are pretty lousy, IMHO. There is no cooling option, and the heating option is expensive and totally not appropriate for a vehicle. The new technology is heat-pumps - yes, the EV1 had one, the new Leaf has one, and the Renault Zoe has one. I've been looking around, and found a pretty svelte one that uses a little BLDC motor for the compressor. - Hey! what about this controller??
