1966 Morris J2 - 152 Commercial Van
- Engine:11 inch Kostov R21 electric DC
- Transmission:Direct drive electric
- Body Style:Bus
- Trim:Original trim and interior
Found in original state in early 2011 in dry storage in Inverell NSW. Literally no rust, but old rubbers everywhere.
We patched up rubbers, and converted to 100% electric in last half of 2011.
It is now my daily driver.
This J2 is driven by a large electric motor connected directly to the rear differential. There is no gearbox.
It has a 250kilo pack of lithium batteries which I charge when I need to refill.
Forward and reverse are selected by a switch in the cabin.
Top speed = ~100kph but it doesn’t like it.
Comfortable = 80kph
Range : 100km but I only live 5km from work anyway. (I charge once or twice a week )
So much more quiet & cooler than when it was petrol.
Current tare is 1540kgs but it has GVM 2200kg. Yes, it has REALLY GOOD brakes. Well-tuned drums allround.
