Hi, I am trying to work out how to specify an electric motor sit-on scooter purely to get the very best range between charges with a performance that works ok travelling around town so it handles inclines ok.
So if the battery options are either 48v 20Ah or 60v 20Ah, and the motor can be anything from 500w to 3000w, what combination would you recommend and with what controller to get the best range and performance? A mentioned its the range between charges that I'm most keen on.
Any thoughts would be welcome!
The battery pack size is usually limited by the amount of battery space on the scooter or how much weight it can carry, and the motor size is usually limited by how fast the scooter needs to go or what amount of incline it needs to travel up, so a middle ground has to be found between battery size and motor power so the scooter has the range needed along with the speed and power needed.
Thanks again that's really clear! So my last question would be: For a scooter with a maximum speed of say 28 mph, to handle inclines of say maximum 1 in 5, with a passenger load of say maximum 200 lbs, what Li battery would you recommend and with what motor in order to get the best range?
That is really great support, clear and precise. Thank you so much from 'across the pond', Ray
