This is where you will find schematics, PCB layout, and parts lists for various Prius PHEV conversions.

Original CalCars Method

Further development of the PriusPlus or Prius PHEV#Original CalCars Method has been postponed to persue the Prius PHEV#Hybrid-Pack Method so the original Battery Options can be found at Prius PHEV Battery Options-CalCars

Hybrid-Pack Method

See Prius PHEV#Hybrid-Pack Method for an overview of both of the following methods which utilize a CAN-View for SOC aware operations.

Contactor Based

Ron is refining a simple and inexpensive 22 battery configuration utilizing contactor and resistor, the same EVP20-12B B&B 20Ah 12v SLA PbA batteries from will be used.

PFC Based

Battery Layout for PiPrius

Ryan and Rich Rudman are developing conversion kits based on an enhanced PFC-30 from manzanitamicro. The PFC enable the flexibility of battery pack sizes from about 10 to 30 batteries, among other battery management and charge rate enhancements. The first battery rack will be configured for 15 Hawker EP 26 or Hawker Areo AB26 SLA batteries.
