Thoughts while removing pack

Monday, June 5th, 2017

I’m still not done removing the old batteries – household updates are taking priority.

However, I’ve been pondering whether it is worthwhile to continue working on the EV. Especially when there are some very nice EVs and PHEVs out there.

Pros for the new EV/PHEV:

  • ABS,
  • Air conditioning,
  • Nice paint and body,
  • J1772 connector,
  • Brand new battery.

Cons for the new EV/PHEV:

  • UGLY,
  • Closed system – no tinkering.

I think for now, I’ll keep working on the 914, if nothing else to fix the rust that came back – will make it easier to sell the roller if push comes to shove.

I’m still looking into new EVs – especially now that the wireless charging is closer to reality.
