I am passionate about Citroen and EV's
Well, nobody is perfect, right?
Since I can remember I dreamed of owning an electric car and building my own car. So it came to be that in 2013, certain stars lined-up and I found myself building my own EV; well converting a Citroen DS Pallas to electric.
There were many firsts, including the vehicle I chose to electrify, choosing to go with a 3-phase induction motor (those days conversions used DC motors, a lot simpler to deploy) and to keep the magnificent hydropneumatic suspension, braking and power steering system.
All these extra challenges could have been avoided, but what a magic vehicle I ended-up with. Certainly worth the costs, sweat and tears. Interested in the conversion details? Click here...
