1998 Ford Escort ZX2 EV

I built this EV in 2011 and it was my daily driver (42 miles each way) to work until I purchased a Chevrolet Volt.

In 2011 I had the California DMV change the vehicle inspected and the status from G(Gas) to E (Electric) so that there would be no smog check requirements.

The Batteries, Charger, Cables, etc. have been removed to I am listing the car for sale as a project.

I had custom suspension springs made to compensate for the extra weight added by the Lead Acid Batteries and will also supply the original in case someone want to convert it to lithium.

The car is outfitted for electric power steering and electric vacuum pump for power breaks.

The car has a 55 AMP DC-DC converter for the 12V components of the car.

Speed sensors were installed during the conversion so the car has full instrumentation and cruise control.

The heater core was converted to a 1500 Watt electric heating element.

There is a PackTracker System but I believe that it is failed.

There is an electric fuel gauge sender installed so that the original fuel gauge is operational.

I have many of the manuals for the components.

There is a full picture gallery of the car being built at http://www.winmedic.com/Electric_ZX2.htm

Beautiful car and conversion. I had similar ambitions. http://www.evalbum.com/preview.php?vid=2233

You did a better execution and I did. Too much time and money. What price?

did I read right the car was working and is now dissembled. I think it would sell better if it was ready to drive.

Probably true. But if was to go out and buy a full set of Flooded Lead Acid batteries the new owner may want to go Lithium to get a much longer range. Also I would have to raise the price accordingly.

This is a great project for someone that does not have much Mechanical ability as all of the Mechanical part is done and they can build out the Electrical system as they see fit.

mike y I understand a complete car that need batteries but is otherwise ready to go. That is not all that is indicated as missing. I have some electrical understanding, but you built a working unit. A working unit that needs batteries is most attractive. One that was working and now need major reconstruction and fabrication is seems like a lot of wasted effort
