This blog documents the restoration, and conversion, of a 1965 Humber (Singer) Vogue to a fully electric vehicle. The Vogue will be powered by an 11kW(modified), 3 phase industrial AC motor, controlled by an industry standard Variable Speed Drive (VSD) or Inverter. To be able to produce the 400 volts phase to phase the VSD will need about 600 VDC of batteries. A big thanks to the contributors on the AEVA forum: http://forums.aeva.asn.au/forums/

Weight Removed and to be Added
The final weight of the car is pretty important. If it's too heavy I will have trouble getting VicRoads approval. So far it's looking good. About 10kg lighter than original.
The cells in beige are ones I haven't weighed yet or haven't made/purchased yet. Now what have I forgotten?
