Electric car is finished, final touches and bureaucracy left

Well, I can say that my electric car conversion is finished. It is running fine, controller working well, BMS managing the batteries during charge well, display showing main car and batteries parameters on touchscreen, stock RPM, fuel and temperature gauges on stock dashboard show meaningful values, drive-testing does not show any more quirks to be fixed. There are cosmetic touches left to be done here and there. They would be done during the preparation for this car presentation to the public on May 11th. This is the main activity now. Of course there is no limit to perfection but I'll need to stop myself at some point of "good enough". When car is prepared for presentation I'll make a video of it from all possible aspects I will think of. Until then I would ask for your patience and staying tuned.
Oh, yeah, another important thing after presentation is to go through bureaucracy to get finally registered as roadworthy electric car. This part could be interesting. I think it would be still the first one converted in Lithuania regardless of these big delays I had.


  1. Congrats Mindaugas. That was some project! Excelent info too. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Hi Mindaugas,

    i read about your car congratulations!. I have converted a Citroen AX in Germany.
    I have a 12 kw DC Motor with Lithiumpolymer Akkus with 98 Volts 96 A
    I read about your BMS.

    Since now (>5000 km) i drive without BMS, but i like to install one. I have 48 Cells a 4,2 Volt/48 A.
    I charge them only by the Voltage (98 Volt max 10 A).
    What do you think, can i install your BMS System???? my e-Mail is: pedolapa@gmx.de

    regards from germany


  3. Thanks Alfreds and Peter!

    The car was presented on May 11-13th BaltTechnika 2010 exhibition as one of the first locally converted electric cars in Lithuania. It finished yesterday and I am in recovery phase now.
    The presentation went well and generated a lot of interest. I'll post more info during this weekend.

    Peter, I've sent an email to you.
