I want to convert my 1993 Nissan Sentra to an electric car. What is the right motor size?
My driving conditions are: no hills, distance 35 mi. one way to work, I would be able to recharge at work and at home, 90% freeway, required top speed 65mph or more. Nissan Sentra weight: about 2200lb.
Hi, Mike! In terms of DC series wound motors - the most common EV conversion motor - a 9" motor is fine for your car. You'll probably use either the ADC FB1-4001 (that's the one Gav's using in the video!) or the NetGain WarP 9.
