Description: fully electric conversion. 12 x 8v flooded lead-acid batteries (96 volt) system powering 8" DC traction motor. 78 peak HP, and more torque than stock. 40 mile range on 11kWhr (full charge). Energy consumption is about 250 Whr/mile, variable with conditions.

Recent upgrade to 120v of LiFePO4 batteries lightened car by 500# to 2020# and provide much less internal resistance for better performance. I use about 225 WattHr/mile according to the on board CycleAnalyst, and 300 WattHr/mile 'at the wall' according to a kill-a-watt meter
