AC Electric Volkswagen Conversion, maybe?

AC Electric Volkswagen Conversion, maybe?

What AC motors do you recommend that I look at? I just got my convertible VW and am ready to start my winter project for next summer.

Hi, Jeremie!
You'll want a three phase induction AC motor for your convertible.
You can find them at Metric Mind or Electro Automotive. Depending on which VW model you've got, Electro Automotive might just carry a custom conversion kit for it. How convenient is that??

Good luck with your project!
