I know these were used during the 1972 Munich Olympics. I believe that is why they were built.
BMW converted a 1972 BMW 1602 sports sedan to all-electric drive for the 1972 Munich Olympic games.
Replacing its gasoline M10 four-cylinder engine with a bank of lead acid batteries and a 32-kilowatt motor, BMW engineers managed to squeeze enough range out of the car to allow it to operate as a support car on the 26-mile marathon course.
These were the first electric cars to use regenerative braking something all electric cars do today 25-30 miles on a lead acid battery is pretty impressive, lead acid batterys are a slow charging battery by nature not like the new l/i batterys in use to day, you can charge a Nissan Leaf in 15 Minutes with a commercial charger today and that's a lot of amps moving in a short period of time
Cute...but can it do this?
...sorry, I shamelessly plug my buddy's car any chance I can get. It is....amazing. http://www.zombie222.com/
and, yes, Mitch definitely wants to build an electric '02 for anyone interested...
1800 foot pounds of torque at all rpms and the host needs to try a burn out, not many things in life can be assumed on face value but I think you could assume that a 67 Mustang with that amount of power will do a burn out.
