The electrical engineer in me says non VFD and it could sell in the 7K to 8K range.Do you have a guess on the price?
Using a VFD (which they should do since it is a 3 phase motor and that would allow a lot better battery management) $8K to 11K (USD)
Guessing, but I just put together three VFD 25 HP blower systems and am running about 2.5K for the electrics and controls. The rest they could just source internally except maybe the frame.
I would like to be one of the long term testers they speak of using. Give me a couple weeks with my VFD PLC and I bet I can squeeze it to 75 miles just by current monitoring verses speed of machine.... and could get real fancy if I was allowed to put a few accelerometers in it.
My brother, also an engineer, did the Segway adding the accelerometer and the current monitors did wonders for the battery life. He and I did a couple shopping cart movers, they push the carts from behind while a person pulls it. We used accelerometers and current monitors to predict whether it was stopping or starting, and how fast a person was going to walk with the carriages. By monitoring the current and speed we also knew how many carriages the machine was pushing and could map the start and stop power curves.
