EV conversion cost

In order to the cost of an EV conversion, it is important to that an EV conversion is like a new car and that it is actually increasing the of the vehicle as there will no be any cost in regards to gas, oil change, mufflers, broken etc. You are completely changing the system.The cost of charging is a fraction of the cost of gas. conversion, selling the engine can the cost a few thousand dollars on the engine to be sold.

The cost of an car conversion can vary greatly on whether it’s AC or DC and the size to be converted. In general terms, for a DC system conversion, you will about $10,000-$12,000 in parts. AC will cost you more. The cost will range $5,000 — $8,000 on the complexity of the conversion. An AC conversion is a more efficient conversion, but a DC will be more affordable for people and we will offer types.

Components are also through us if someone decides to do own installation.

Energy usage works out to about .4 kWh per mile for DC and .174 — .288 kWh for the efficient AC systems. You can multiply by your electricity rate to get a per mile. For example, if you pay $0.13 per hour, this works out to a over a nickel a mile for DC and half that for AC.

For comparison, gas at $3.50 per gallon on an 25 mpg car works out to $0.14 per mile.


There are several companies that are offering kits. They are dc conversions and use dc We do not offer kits. Instead, we you what is available and provide to help you make an informative about each component. way you can get exactly the components you want of pre-assigned components in a kit.

The car manufacturers’ electric cars are AC and is a drive system than DC but cost more. They are preferable in a hilly terrain. are the advantages:

Regenerative braking any extra equipment

You can recover a LOT of battery power during the driving process. A few DC systems can do to some extent also, but don’t do it nearly as well and it makes them more and expensive.

AC electric car motors can be well to your ICE’s torque so that you don’t inadvertently your transmission with normal driving habits. An combustion engine is considerably than an electric DC motor, and the system your donor was with is not designed to withstand the workout your series DC is capable of delivering. AC motors constant torque over a range of RPM. Top rotor RPM of a typical DC motor is about as low as for an AC motor requiring you to shift thus loosing torque at the Normally vehicles using DC avoid the need for shifting by in 3rd or even 4th gear so the RPM at freeway remains manageable.

This, aside requiring a very motor (to provide high torque at the wheels while on 3rd greatly stresses transmission normally not intended for such sometimes resulting in broken teeth, stripped splines, shafts, damaged CV joints. AC don’t have these

No motor brushes

There are all issues with brush seating, commutator arcing and at high RPM; and they’re no in a regenerative braking environment. If reverse is used, the requirements for advance for forward and reverse direction are contradictory. If you want to these problems altogether, use an AC


A dc controller COULD be but usually isn’t. AC inverters are matched to the motor they’re with, and you can set all the software parameters to best fit your driving and your batteries. You can set the battery to maximum for regen and minimum for (for battery protection), max current for driving and regen throttle response profile, regen option, tachometer creeping current, power and economy mode limits, inverter and motor temperature, reverse, safe motor RPM (separately for forward and reverse) and more.

All programmable parameters can be on a PC/laptop screen in real in digital and analog graphic as you drive, so you can optimize the settings in the vehicle. Configurable graphs and can be stored for later analysis and

If a DC controller’s power stage the entire pack voltage all 120 or 140 volts or whatever — is to the motor. In contrast, power of an AC inverter are used to generate for the motor, not regulate it. So in case of a AC generation just stops and the just looses power.

reverse is as easy as adding a toggle switch on the dash

All it for an inverter is to swap sequence of 2 so the rotor runs in opposite It’s a bit more complicated DC electric car motors.

Ease of

Contrary to popular opinion, AC are easier to install than DC not harder. Yes, the AC inverter is a complicated instrument, but then, so is the DC They’re both using but that’s nothing unusual, so is your typical ICE. To a Siemens AC system you have to 6 connections: 3 phases to the motor, 2 to the battery and plug encoder The rest is low voltage wiring: DC-DC output — to 12V system in the car, 3 wires to the switch, 3 wires to the throttle 3 wires to the direction switch, and 2 to the (optional) start inhibit

The biggest drawback permanent magnet DC motors is they’re noisier. Like all DC motors, the brushes generate radio interference. But unlike types of brushed electric used in electric cars, the series wound DC motors which have windings provide natural filtering of noise, the PM motors have no filtering effect in their so they’re noisy.

DC motors are (relatively) low voltage current devices. At high (200VDC) the brushes will arc at high RPM. DC solutions for EVs is controllers and motors which are not or intended to be used in EV and even in environment (like common PMC controllers).

At best, controllers for the lifts and golf carts are in use. DC motor has giant at stall and it quickly diminishes as RPM up forcing you to shift gears.
