I don’t know about but I’m not going to convert an (that’s Internal Combustion into an electric-powered rocket in my time. I think I mentioned that my mechanical aptitude is in negative numbers.

However, is what I’ve found: are people out there who actually doing this sort of

. and are willing to sell them to you they’re done! I’m let’s leave the sweating and to them and just pony up the instead! Right??

Oh, OKAY. if you sweating and grease, that’s business. You can build your own car if you’re so inclined.

Electric Car Conversions

One of a kind vehicles

This can be a good thing. or a bad The nice part about a homemade electric car conversion is nobody else has one just it. It’s the difference between that Oleg Cassini off the or having Oleg design it for

I mean, if you could afford it, why you?

Well, one drawback to a one-of-a-kind car is trying to find for it later. If the parts have to be built because your car is a or they quit making it, or you might find yourself an orphan car sometime down the


. the electric parts are likely to need replacing the other parts, like and tires and headlights and such. So if you a Chevy S-10 or a Ford a Forerunner or an Echo or a Legacy, you really have an orphan, do You can take it into any tire or shop and get the ordinary things

The parts are cheap, because are dozens of them out on the road.

The electric bits that probably need replacing the road are batteries, and one battery can be interchanged with another.

. as as the dimensions are the same.

Motors and for your electric car conversion can be from companies that been around for a long and will continue to be around for a time. The net result is that car might be one of a kind.

. but it’s not orphanable in the same way a production car a dead company might be.

just that the parents are SHACKING UP.

Would you drive an car conversion?

I want to talk some of the disadvantages of electric for a minute, now.

I’ll let you in on the BIG of electric vehicles: An electric car has almost none of the disadvantages find in one of the neighborhood electric — those little sometimes unkindly referred to as on steroids. No, electric car conversions are the as gas-burners in many respects the insurance company will you with open arms. The of Motor Vehicles doesn’t you any differently.

The police won’t even you, except if you’re which.

. you just might be ; )

probably be driving at freeway in your conversion, because have a higher voltage than the NEVs have, and most conversions, you can drive it for miles between charges, on the batteries you choose. If you don’t spending some money and some diligent searching, you can those, too.

Your gear will work fine. LATCH system, air crumple zones. all meet safety standards for full-sized, vehicles.

You can get tires, brakes, side-mirrors, et cetera at the local parts store, or auto store, or whatever. The point is an S-10 is still an S-10, if you don’t have to put gas in it anymore; )

Oops, I’m supposed to be about the.

DISadvantages of an car conversion

So here they

They’re not at the dealership.

For those of us who are for electric cars to be lined up at the beside the Hummers, the conversion is to be a HUGE disappointment. You actually to go looking for them. You might have to have one built. If an enterprising grease-o-phile, you might build one yourself.

No financing.

You may get through your credit or bank for one of the production electric you find at a green car dealership, but not for your conversion. They cost a little less, but the financing issue is a big one for most of us. I how many people do you know ten thousand or so dollars cash around?

The gas-guzzlers have the advantage of companies associated with dealerships, and nearly anyone can get to buy a fume-farter. They’re not standard.

not every electric car conversion equally well.


boys won’t admit but they don’t all know they’re doing. Shh; )

NOT rocket science to convert a to electric, in general, but there IS a trick to getting the system to work well together. The amateur conversions seem to get by electrical engineers, and that’s because they already a thing or two about how to optimize systems.

If it breaks, who’s fix it?

Well, the person who did your most likely. Or YOU. The news is, this doesn’t very often. But it’s to think about. The best are still small pickup

Not everybody wants a pickup! I’d like a Lincoln converted to electric, but this the best choice with technology. Conversions need to be light and aerodynamic (sorry, ) while still having the structure and storage space to 750 pounds of bulky batteries.

External storage is safest in the of a crash!

If you need more more power, or more than the Zaps and NmG’s can the conversion might be your

Do the advantages outweigh the disadvantages? that’s up to you — but I love the of having a safe, familiar car NEVER needs gas or a tune-up.
