Yes, very impressive - cost?

Amazing stuff, I'm so happy that moddding is picking up for this car! Thank you for the efforts, would you mind doing a more detailed write up so we can perhaps reproduce one day?

Wonder if its possible to build a liquid cooling setup for those batteries. Maybe use off the shelf PC parts? I think it would be worth investigating especially during the summer/higher temp months and to preserve battery capacity/condition.

Super job.

So .. actually you are carrying around 220v power line via battery and inverter in the trunk.

So, for get the extra range you need to stop the car, click a button on the remote and plug the charging cable, from your new socket and the J1772 .. right ?

Why you did not go for a more simple solution ?

I would have used a DC-DC step up, and feed directly the main battery via the pre-heating connector plug on the boot .. or put in parallel a 80S battery to the one on the car boot.

Anyhow ... very nice to see people thinking and modifying the battery and range of our PHEV

Essentially it’s like having 2 people in the car all the time, including the driver, so that shouldn’t be too bad economy wise...

An impressive solution, but I’m just wondering why Mitsubishi didn’t do it?

Despite asking, I don't remember seeing the cost for this set up.

Hello everyone

I'm sorry I did not answer earlier but I was pretty busy

in terms of cost, all inclusive with batteries, converter, wiring, switchboard with breakers, solar panels (currently being assembled): 4000 €

A liquid cooling would be perfect yes but a lot of work in addition with piping, radiators with fan, pump, expansion tank, exchanger at the batteries. Thinking

to charge, no need to plug the plug or other, everything is done automatically via inverter relays. just press the stop button that's all.

as for the extra weight, I find that very reasonable.

Ventilation completed.

2 120mm and 48v fans are installed behind the grids with thermostat control
A 2nd pilot thermostat via an inverter relay ignition of the engine venilation of the car to extract hot air outside (as if we put the ignition and switched on the ventilation, but without the need to do it or put the contact)
The 12 volts is manufactured from the 48v via a converter 48v 12v
A 3rd fans 48v 60mm has been installed in the trunk to extract the heat generated by the converter when it is in charge to power the original fan and ventilate in general.

Everything is controlled from the central armrest.
Button on off converter that manufactures the 220 volts
On-off button for rear ventilation
Bonton on off for front ventilation

The solar panels are being installed. Once all finished I will put you the pictures
The wires are already in place from the roof rails.

Looking forward for the pictures with solar panels ;)

Will be interesting to know how many kwh of energy you can get from solar in a good sunny day ...

Economical wise, I can't see how to justify a 4000 euro investment ... but ... the cool effect is priceless 8-)
