The project aims to enable Thais to convert their old cars into electric vehicles

Shocking innovation!

Oh, just put a plug in it.

The Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand (Egat) is studying how to develop a low-cost electric car battery

 

You have the best scientific brains and the largest international companies in the world trying to do this but the local Generating Authority who cannot even keep on the lights think they can come up with the answer  🤣

Lights are on but no-one home....LOL

If it was at all viable....it would already have been done and dusted.

It seems so obvious that none of these people actually comprehend what would be involved?....I doubt any of them have looked under a car hood!

"...not exceeding Bt200,000 (excluding the price of the battery). 

 

Batteries not included!

 

Maybe they can pick some up at 7/11 or buy 1, get one free at Foodland.  :stoner:

Nah. There must be an easy way to fit 4 washing motors to the wheels. Performance might be compromised so replacing the speedo with a calendar would fix that.

there was a couple of years ago, a US based project; that you convert say your car into a Hybrid instead.  

It was basically a 'fit 2 washing motors'   system. 

For a FWD car, you would be placing these hub style motors to the rear wheels only. 

A tight fit between the wheel and it's hub 

All powered only while the IC was turning and burning 

Can see many downfalls, if one considers someone trying to further retrofit this concept to run on battery alone - considering Auto trans damage if running off batts whilst the IC Off

The Management think its a good idea, the Intelligent employees think its as bloody stupid as having Reactors here.[emoji85][emoji86]

I had an idea years ago to place a DC motor/generator inline with the driveshaft of a rear wheel drive vehicle to produce a DiY hybrid from an ordinary I/C vehicle. Of course, batteries would have to be installed somewhere and powering the driveshaft motor would have to be sync'd with the I/C engine, etc. Placing the motor/generator where it would clear the car's chassis/frame is ONLY ONE of the problems with this concept. For front wheel drive vehicles ... hmmmm, let me think. Maybe someone out there has already implemented this idea.

 

It would be conceptually like the nowadays electrically-assisted bicycles that maintain the original gearing by installing a hub motor/generator (motor/gen for regenerative braking) and a battery and controller. It's a very common setup and kits are sold to electrify a pedal bicycle, yet maintain the ability to pedal with the bike's original gears. In fact one are two of these electrified bicycles are for sale on craigslist/thailand.

just think of the possibilites!!
