Toyota Hilux EV Conversion
The Hilux takes approx.$2.40/100km off peak power, though I have been driving free with wind & solar power. Top speed, 150km/hr. Range, 180km at 100km/hr. Greater range at slower speeds. Acceleration, in 3rd gear, 0-60km/hr in 6 seconds, 0-80km/hr in 9 seconds, and 3rd gear changing to 4th gear 0-100km/hr in 12 seconds. Amp draw at 60km/hr between 55-70 amps, at 80km/hr between 100-120 amps, at 100km/hr between 120-150 amps. Amp draw is the same in any gear at the same speed. I can get 4.5-5.0 km per kW of electricity, mostly driving at 100km/hr.
