Default Leo Motors tests electric vehicle conversion

Quote:
New York, New York - Tests on a Kia converted to electric mode by Leo Motors has achieved speeds of 160 km/h and a range of 240 km on a single charge, going from zero to 96 km/h in six seconds.

The conversion kit by Leo Motors, a company based in Korea and the U.S., was fitted to a Kia Morning, a popular model in Korea. Leo said that its conversion kit can be used in any type of small to midsize vehicle platform for any manufacturer, and can convert electric vehicles for real-world use for both highway and city traffic.

The conversion uses a 60 kW water-cooled AC motor with controller, 30 kWh or 16 kWh lithium polymer power pack with multi-battery management system, and charger.

“This solution is more than a kit to convert small to midsize cars into electric vehicles,” said Robert Kang, chairman and CEO. “It is a real-world solution available today to the entire auto industry that enables car manufacturers to introduce electric vehicles of their own into the marketplace immediately.”

The kit is priced at US$20,000 16 kWh power pack; the company said it is available now on an order basis
