1968 Honda S800
100KW Electric Motor
Conversion to an electric drivetrain transforms them. It removes all the mechanical complexity, increases the capability but leaves all the charm. A car that’ll get you out into around town using renewable energy.
Car was missing all driveline, brakes and steering column and was rusty and dented. It was a perfect candidate for resto and conversion. Has a 30 kWh NCM pack running a H9 directly coupled to the rear tail shaft and 5:11 ratio rear diff, car accelerates well and easily climbs hills. Car electrics all now 12 volt , speedo and Tacho now run off motor controller. We used a gear lever looking direction switch, used aftermarket steering column designed as universal for Hot-rods. Rear diff and driveshaft are from early Suzuki 4WD. Alloy rims off later model Honda reworked to tidy up, body shell resto by Queens Rd Smash, all new upholstery by Carman, Type-2 charging port behind rear numberplate, Orion BMS controls the charging port. It will eventually have one-pedal like driving, as well as a brake line pressure sensor. 4 wheel disc brakes from a Daewoo.
Old Feel, but New
Every touchpoint refined. It’s still a classic with visible bolts, rivets and clamps, but each element has been upgraded to improve safety, strength and feel.
