I have just got round to watching a couple of episodes of "Vintage Voltage" that I'd recorded. The series is about converting classic cars to electric power at considerable expense. The first two episodes showed a Karmann Ghia VW (£30K) and a Fiat 500. On the list for future programmes is a Fulvia Coupe which I may have to watch from behind the sofa.
If you're interested the show can be found on Quest, Freeview channel 12 on Thursdays at 9pm

At the London Classic car Show in February there was a company who converted a Ferrari and FIAT 500 which they had on their stand who had completed a Fulvia too, it may be the same car, I believe it came from Ireland to be done, the cost was pretty high from memory.  Might be interesting even from behind the sofa!

Spoiler alert!
I asked about this as I spotted it on Twitter earlier in the year.
They used a Hyper 9 motor, https://www.electricclassiccars.co.uk/motors/test-product via an adapter plate onto the original gearbox. 42kWh battery pack (16 LG Chem batteries) and a 7kW charge system. The brakes and suspension were also upgraded to take the weight.
Range apparently up to 150 miles on a charge, depending on driving style and conditions.
Price for conversion was in the region of £55k!

I didn't realise electric cars ran through a gear box or does it just run in one gear and reverse.

I think that they connect the electric motor to the gearbox as its an easier adaptation Geoff.

Iíve been waiting for the Fulvia episode to be broadcast, but after 7 episodes the series appears to have stopped.
Anyone any idea of when ? If?

Hi Paul
Yes likewise, but as you say, for some reason the show has stopped.
Will let you know if it reappears.
Cheers
