This is my first post here
Me and my dad want to start an ev conversion on our 1987 Nissan Patrol.
We’ve worked out that’s we want to attach a DC motor (not AC) to our gearbox (not AC because it’s cheaper and simpler)
Now come Batteries. We want about 50km range for a first prototype. But if it works well our plan is to replace the batteries with much bigger ones 100km+ since the truck has LOADS of space.
We have some monster tires on there, so what would be a good way to calculate kWh per km?
This way I can spec out a 50km battery for under €7000(Netherlands)
Thanks for the help!
