EV Information

This wiki is intended to be a one stop resource for anyone thinking of converting a car from a ICE car to run on pure electricity. If you are not familiar with a wiki it is just like an encyclopaedia that anyone can add to or edit. This means that all of our collective knowledge is collected in one easy to read place, errors that inevitably occur are monitored and changed by other members and the information stays up to date. The wiki is still growing and every member of this site has full permission to edit or create whatever they think will contribute positively to this resource.

Below is a sort of contents page with the topics arranged in themes rather than alphabetically to make it a little easier to navigate.

A Beginners Guide to Electric Cars:

It can be pretty daunting when you find out about how popular and useful electric cars seem to be, it prompts all kinds of questions and the scepticism of something that seems too good to be true. This section of the wiki aims to answer those questions and give a good basic introduction to make it easy to find out more. The current topics are:

Once you have realised the advantages of EVs you might decide that converting a car to an electric drive train is best for your circumstances, but where do you start? This section aims to make the planning stages of an EV conversion a little easier with guides on where to start, what you need to know and what is required to make the switch to electrons. The current topics are:

Some parts of the conversion process need some background theory to understand them clearly. More than just the basics, this section will help you get your head around the trickier theoretical parts of your EV so that the practical parts come together nicely. The current topics are:

Unfortunately, converting a car to electric is sometimes not as easy as just swapping the motors over. Besides the drive train there are several parts of are normal car that are either dependant on the ICE or that need to be made more suitable for the new electric system. This section will cover those smaller things that at are secondary to the major components of an EV but are nevertheless important to consider. The current topics are:

Air-Conditioning Options

Brake Upgrade Options

Power Steering Options

Automatic Transmissions in EVs

Getting Your Hands Dirty:

This section of the wiki covers the more practical side of a conversion. It contains How To Guides and specific examples to aid in the actual doing part of the EV conversion process. The key words of this section are specific and practical so if you are in the middle of a conversion then this is probably the place to be. The current topics are:

Tool List

DIY — Battery/Motor Cables

Schematic Diagram Example

Current Limiting Formula for LEDs

AWG to Metric Conversion

Copper Busbar Design

Battery Pack Techniques: LiFePO4 Cells

Making Good Great:

Once the car is up and running for some the DIY bug never really leaves them. Converting to an EV not only makes good sense it is also a great hobby and since range and battery life is a big factor of EV use, efficiency becomes a big priority. So once the car is moving how can it be made better; more efficient, more practical etc. The current topics are:

Aerodynamics- Overview

Rolling Resistance

Regenerative Braking

Opportunity Charging

Food For Thought :

Apart from your own conversion there is plenty out there going on which may be related to, inspiration for, or help you understand something about your own conversion. This section aims to cover the more general ideas about electric cars and the surrounding technology. It can perhaps be considered the next step up from the beginners guide to EVs. The current topics are:

Current and Future Production EVs

Hybrid Electric Vehicles




Compressed Air Vehicles

Perpetual Motion (Generator on Motor, Wind Powered)
