BASELINE TESTS OF THE EVA METRO ELECTRIC PASSENGER VEHICLE

The EVA Metro is a four-passenger Renault 12 Sedan that has been converted to an electric vehicle. It was tested as part of a Department of Energy (DOE) project to characterize the state-of-the-art of electric vehicles. The EVA Metro Sedan vehicle performance test results are presented in this report. The EVA Metro is powered by sixteen, 6-volt traction batteries through a silicon-controlled rectifier (SCR) controller actuated by a foot throttle to change the voltage applied to a 10-kW motor. The braking system is a power-assist, hydraulic braking system with front-wheel disk and rear drum. Regenerative braking is not provided.
