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/

The Vogue awaits an Engine in 2004
The Vogue sits patiently in the backyard waiting for an engine that doesn't need the head gasket changed every year. (I got the idea for electric in 2008.)
FCR Motion Technology in Melbourne, the local Lenze agent, have been absolutely no help whatsoever.
