New to the forum and need some opinions. Fed up with waiting for an EV vehicle, I have decided to make a purchase but need some help with the decision.
Option 1) e-cruiser 220 with a 55amp controller to match LiFE phosphate 60v, 40Ah batteries, plus trunk and rear disk brake.
Option 2) e-runner 220 with 45amp controller to match NiMH 60v, 20Ah batteries, no trunk and rear drum brake.
I weigh 154lbs and live in a relatively flat area but I do have several short steep hills to negotiate and a couple of short stretched of cars going 40-45mph. My shortest daily commute is about 10 miles and my longest could be as much as 20-25 miles (out for lunch and errands ofter work).
Can you guys give me your thoughts on the performance, range, speed, etc. of these vehicles and maybe what you think fair prices for these might be?
