David....While what you say is true it is also true that golfcart/forklift type
of conversions are simple to troubleshoot but they are also prone to blown
controllers. One thing to do is hack Leaf packs to put into conversions of
unusual vehicles. I stopped my EV escapades when I got an estimate of 22k for
batteries and BMS/charger for my Aspire. I now have two Leafs for little more
money. I have been driving the State of California with my Leafs. This is
something I couldn't do with my conversions. However with inexpensive Leaf
packs available it is possible to revive some conversions and I think
converting RV type vehicles may come into vogue.
is an example of a lead conversion which gives the owner great satisfaction.
However there are plans to expand the range of this conversion to 150 miles and
the solar array to 8kw. Lawrence Rhodes
