On YouTube Patrick ..a Sydney Company has developed a Battery changing System currently used by Cement TrucksAll sounds pretty good Sean.
Keep us posted as to how it goes with charging and the costs etc.
I’m sure she will enjoy it, I’ve driven a few of my work mates of the same model.
Very nice indeed. Great Chinese car made to fantastic standards.
Very interesting Sean. I’ve only seen cars do the battery swap thing.On YouTube Patrick ..a Sydney Company has developed a Battery changing System currently used by Cement Trucks
Drive in... change the Battery Pac out in about 10 minutes.
They are also converting Deiseal Trucks to E. Vs. at Engine 0/H time. They exampled 16 Lt Volvos... ?????????
Spot on Sean, even though BEV trucks don’t run a clutch, in Diesel trucks, the clutch on an AMT (even though they don’t have a clutch pedal) really suffer from damper spring failure.Another plus Patrick is that the Gearbox, which still retained behind the Electric Motor after a conversion, lasts for double the milage as behind a vibrating Diesel Engine.
Regarding the new range of Volvo heavy duty electric trucks, everyone that buys one has access to the following rout planning software.
This is also part of the sales process to show potential customers that there is so much that can be done to ensure the electric trucks do what they are designed to do.
It’s probably the biggest issue with electric trucks here in Australia compared to Europe as our extreme powered DC chargers are few and far between. However they are in the process of rolling out more chargers for cars, but very few for trucks.
The big DC chargers have massive water cooled cables connecting the charger to the car or truck.
The amperage they put out is staggering.

When watching the video, please bear in mind the BYD has a 60kwh battery, the Tesla Model S has a 100kwh battery and the biggest available is 212kwh in a Hummer EV2X pick up.
You’re welcome Sean.Thank you Patrick... and I thought ABS Systems were complex !!
