24 volt suzuki electric 4x4
« on: April 16, 2017, 06:25:53 pm »

Seeing I have an over supply of solar power I have a hankering to convert our 1992 suzuki 4x4 ute to electric.
It only needs to travel a maximum of 50kms on a charge.
Anyone out there that has any knowledge?

Electric suzuki 4x4 ......plenty of examples online and lots of ways to go about it.

Though 24v is to low to work with off the shelf gear. you would need to go 96v or so but don't let that put you off.  even if you charge two 48v banks that get switched to series once charged.



I have a friend (Graeme) who runs a business in Brisbane called Suzi Auto. They have done lot of Suzuki 4wd electric conversions and they deal in budget kits and 2nd hand imported battery's and driveline gear ....also suzuki parts and service.

As I said to you before mate it is the batteries that are the killer.
96 volts is a serious amount of weight in fla cells!
Lithium are out of the question for me as they are to expensive and second hand stuff is like hens teeth around here.

Yes Russ its Kurt.

There is one guy in the electric car club with a1980s Honda city (tiny little hatchback car) that cant carry much weight. He has been using flooded lead acid for about 20 years. He uses smaller 12v cells around 100ah each . A few under the bonnet and more in a box where the back seat use to be . He is running 96v. Along with a simple brushed dc motor and controller.

From memory he has two battery's under the bonnet (60kg) and 6 in the back (180kg). Even that tiny car swallows the cells with more room than it had with the petrol motor. He gets about 30,000km or so out of the cells before he needs to replace them.

I see on the website they have lithiums out of some small nissan mate!
I did find some 24 volt dc motors on evil bay, mainly out of the states.
Even 48 volts would be ok.
I do not require long trip capability so lower voltage would be ok.

The issue with voltage isn't the range it's the speed and amps you would need to pull.

Speed..the motor wont turn very fast at 24v and you wont go very fast. This can be overcome by gearing but has a knock on effect for the 2nd issue high amps.

To get the same power say 20kw (27hp) at 24v ...20,000w / 24v  =  830A!!!! the same power at 96v 20,000 / 96 = 208A a much more manageable realistic current to work with.

The knock on effect of 24v and gearing up is the motor will draw even more amps than the already crazy 830A! That's why you don't see 24v road going EV's

Everything just becomes so much easier when you up the voltage.

Range (50km) is based predominantly on the capacity of your battery bank 96v at 100ah or  8 x 12v 100ah battery's gives you around 10kwhs total storage that would give you about 50km range.
