Approx costs of big-ticket items:
Contactors, fuses $500
Motor mounting plates, adaptor $300
Motor to trans coupling $950
Battery management system, wiring, connectors $4200
Battery box steel/aluminium $500
Misc wire/sheath/connectors etc. $500
DC/DC converter $300
VASS engineer sign-off $1100
Plus a lot of misc items, plus refurbishing the car (shocks, brake lines, wheels, tyres, bushes, etc) You couldn't do this conversion for less than $25k, and we did all the work ourselves except the machining of the motor coupling. Note we used top-of-the-line components everywhere. You could probably do a "lead sled" for $15k, but it would weigh about 2000 kg and have a range of about 40 km, and very slow acceleration!
