[isdntekvideo] Priced to sell! This is everything needed to drive on pure electric, just plug in a power source (batteries) and go! I can even have a battery pack installed at no cost if the buyer provides one. Then the Sterling will be under it's own power for transport, and ready to drive once it arrives! I have extensive knowledge on the types of batteries used in electric cars. If you explain your driving expectations for this vehicle, i will specify the type of battery pack that matches your needs.
Here are a couple of very common battery packs used in electric vehicles.
Lead Acid Batteries-
Cost: $2,000-$3,000
Range Per Charge: 25-35 Miles
Lifespan: 3-4 Years
Pack Weight: 750 lbs
Lithium Ion Batteries (LiFePO4) -
Cost: $6,000-$11,000
Range Per Charge: 60-120 Miles
Lifespan: 10-15 Years (if managed properly)
Pack Weight: 400-600 lbs
Battery Management System: Optional (I can include a Mini BMS)
The battery pack that was used in this vehicle is a Lithium Iron Phosphate chemistry, measuring in at 170 Volts and 160 Amp Hours. This cost about $8,000 and weighs 500lbs. The 160Ah was enough for roughly 90 miles per charge. Performance was 0-60 in ~6-7 seconds with 100 MPH top speed.
You can charge this Sterling by plugging a normal 120V extension chord from your wall outlet to the charge receptacle located in the driver side air vent. This methods takes about 1 hr to charge the pack from empty to 80%. To charge to 100% takes 8 hours. It is also simple to add a J1772 charge receptacle which will allow for 240V and 480V charging which would charge to 100% in 4 hours and 2 hours respectively.

The crack was a garage fatality (something fell on it). A strip of electrical tape cover's the crack temporarily. There is also a small gravel chip on the hood.
