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:

One more Electric Car in the family

I wasn't at work on the last day before we broke for Christmas so didn't get my Kris Kringle until last week. Since it's anonymous, I figured the person who gave it to me just might read this blog.
So far we (William and I) have built the going-around-in-circles couinterbalanced aeroplane, and this car.
They go amazingly well - they need full sunlight to work properly.

It's quite surprising how much power that little solar cell provides.

The full kit.

Lots of fun - thanks!
