Braking System

The vacuum from the naturally aspirated engine is not anymore available after the removal of the gasoline engine.  A 12 V vacuum pump was therefore installed to support the brake booster.  After the conversion basically three braking systems are available:

  1. Recuperation with the asynchronous motor
  2. Hydraulic braking system (same as before but supported by vacuum pump)
  3. Hand brake – same as before

The installed pump is from Hella  (www.hella.com)
