A Development of Electric Tuk Tuk Conversion in Thailand

Abstract:Electric Vehicle Association of Thailand (EVAT) consisting of various members in both the industrial and educational sectors related to electric vehicle, made a prototype of an electric Tuk Tuk conversion to be a guideline for SME to understand the electric Tuk Tuk (Thailand) conversion from Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) vehicle to the electric power vehicle. This research purposed an e-Tuk Tuk conversion procedure in details to demonstrate the electric vehicles production in Thailand and its experiment. The study started on February 2lst, 2017 to December 25th, 2017. This project aims to: 1) provide the local-made electric vehicle conversion procedure; 2) establish basic requirements (specifications) for modification of electric Tuk Tuk such as power, speed, size, dimensions; and 3) provide a guideline for product development and new business model of electric Tuk Tuk and other local-made vehicles. The specification of the prototype is following; motor 5kw72V, battery LiFePo472V150Ah, maximum speed 71km./hr, maximum distant 110 km. maximum power 13kw on Dynamometer.
