    I've an urge (but not currently the money) to make an electric road car of an Aussie 70's Ford LTD.
    missed that, Plenty of room for batteries in an LTD

    Did you see the Kiwi '57 Fairlane , NZ Govt is a lot more progressive than Australia, they already have a road tax system inlace for EV's using the same setup as Diesel which there is no excise on.

    A classic 1957 Ford Fairlane goes all-electric with a 50 kWh battery pack - Electrek

    Is it just the firewall here, or have you not posted pics of the plates yet? What are they?

    No I hadn't seen that, thanks. Adding 400kg to car like that certainly makes for no lightweight !

    That's the big problem eh. More batteries = more range but also = more weight = more power required = less range.
    The trick is to figure out at what point the law of diminishing returns kicks in.


    This is also interesting, as another off-roader conversion
