I’ve bought a 1973 Volkswagen Beetle and will be converting it to an all-electric drivetrain. Before starting major work, I mounted a Wii Remote in the car and took it for a spin. What you’ll see here is the video from that drive along with the accelerometer data logged with the help of the Wii Remote.
The point of this is to have a good comparison so I know how I do after the conversion. Ideally the car will be only slightly heavier as an electric car, and should accelerate and slow at roughly the same rate, at least while traveling at city speeds. Also a reason for the video is to compare the kind of noise the engine makes versus an electric motor.
It’ll take a few months to finish the conversion, at least, but stay tuned for more info about the electric conversion project.
