In Germany, the owner of the sports car Toyota GT86 was forced to replace the engine in his car. However, the German decided to go an unusual way – install on the machine electric motor from the Nissan Leaf.
Toyota GT 86 with factory powertrain gaining first “hundred” in 7.6 seconds. Top speed is limited at around 233 km / h. Oddly enough, the transition from combustion engines to electric helped to fix it.
Electric version of the coupe performs acceleration from standstill to 100 kilometers per hour in less than five seconds, but fell slightly to a maximum speed of 215 kilometers per hour.
All 48 batteries from a 188-horsepower engine is located around the car: the 16 of them installed under the hood on the old site of the engine 12 in place of the fuel tank, which eliminated the superfluous and the remaining 20 are located in place of the spare wheel.
In this case the transmission owner had preserved the factory, the 6-speed “mechanics”.
