really? comparing ICE cars and full electric cars side by side, the electric cars seem heavy. a leaf has a kerb weight of 1.5 tons, at least 100kg heavier than the juke, from what i can see.Yeah the battery costs is still the biggest barrier. Should improve dramatically over next few years. Currently (pun intended), small kits that have 50-100 mile range are affordable and that would suit most people
yep it’s a heavy little bugger. Heavier than a qashqai!really? comparing ICE cars and full electric cars side by side, the electric cars seem heavy. a leaf has a kerb weight of 1.5 tons, at least 100kg heavier than the juke, from what i can see.
whoops, i quoted the wrong post there. i'd meant to quote the one about the kit for an electric car weighing less than for an ICE car.
you’ll notice I said ‘usually’, because there are a few variables;
The most obvious ones being The size of the engine being removed And the amount of batteries being installed.
I was going on the weight of the yaris - the whole car is 830kg, the model 3 tesla battery is close to 500kg. The yaris engine seems to be rediculously light (and discontinued for being too reliable or something).
Here, are there grants for fixing up derelict houses?
Like, I'd be probably able to hit up the insulation grants etc, but if a house was not livable, are there putting roofs back on wrecked gaffs and herding the birds out of them grants?
Yeah comparing a small engine from a small car to a huge battery pack from a large car is not like for like really.
