VW Transporter T5

At the request of a municipality in the Netherlands, EV Europe has converted a number of VW Transporters type T5 and T6. For this purpose, our standardized conversion package has been developed in which the fuel engine is replaced by a 250 Nm strong AC e-engine. The entire CAN communication is also controlled from the e-car-box, which makes the entire dashboard function again as with the internal combustion engine. The rev counter now gives the e-engine speed and the temperature gauge the temperature of the engine/controller. For the battery system a robust LiFePo4 battery system has been chosen, but for a larger range a Lithium Iion battery system can be chosen.

The transporter T5 is in use to the great satisfaction of the municipality of Leidschendam and also regularly attracts a trailer of 1500 kg through the municipality.
