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:

Economy Figures for Week-before-last

I forgot to post these. I didn't drive the Vogue last week but the week before with the controller switching at 8kHz and me driving the lowest speed roads I could find for my commute returned some excellent power economy.

Economy figures for the week ending 3rd May 2013:
Monday 9.46 AH for 43.4 km => 131 Wh/km
Tuesday 6.33 AH for 30.77 km => 124 Wh/km
Wednesday 6.55 AH for 30.8 km => 128 Wh/km
Thursday 10.28 AH for 44.9 km =>  138 Wh/km
Friday 6.77 AH for 32.4 km =>  125 Wh/km

As always, all battery to wheel.
