Converted Ford Focus - WA (needs windscreen and battery, now sold)

Post by jonescg » Wed, 12 Jun 2019, 15:49

From Leigh:

I purchased a 2010 WA Electric Vehicle conversion trial car (a Ford Focus), which I have been trying to get rid of for a little while now. Unfortunately someone has just smashed the rear window of it, which has convinced me to finally contact you.

I will warn you that the battery pack needs to be fully replaced, however the rest of the gear is in good nick, along with the car it self (obviously except for the rear window now).

Can you please pass my information onto anyone who may be interested in purchasing the car, whether for parts or to rebuild. It has everything machined up to allow someone to easily complete rebuild if they don't have the required machining equipment or skills.

List of interesting parts:
- 30kW DC drive, 100kW peak
- Zilla 1K + Std Hairball drive controller.
- 1kW charger
- fuel gauge
- hall-effect throttle

For more details:

Feel free to give me a call,

Thanks,

Any estimation on price? And what is a "hairball drive controller" hopefully not a comparison to something the cat threw up :lol:

The hairball interfaces things like main Pre charge contactor control, throttle and a few other things to the zilla.

Motorcontrollers now all have it in the same box

Yea pretty happy for what I paid for the car. Leigh is a top bloke!

Undecided on battery replacements at this stage but definitely considering some tesla modules to add some extra range.
