Transform your car into an electric vehicle

Electric vehicle conversion is the process of replacing a car's petrol engine and other parts with an electric motor and batteries, so that the car can run entirely on electricity.

The EV conversion is a great way to reimagine older cars. This process is also known as electro modding, and it gives classic cars a new lease on life. If you have a car that needs a significant overhaul, an electric car conversion will save you a bundle of money in the long run. Here are some things you should know:

  • It’s important to note that any car can be turned into an electric vehicle, from a MINI to a Land Rover. Cars with flat floors, such as Volkswagens are some of the easiest to convert – the flat floor makes it easier to put the batteries in, and a transaxle transmission can be changed to work with an electric motor.
  • The electric motor, the battery pack, and the controller are the three main parts of the electric car conversion. The controller is the "brain" of the system. You also need charging points, a way to cool down the batteries, and the correct wiring. And you might need to change some of the car's systems, such as the brake-booster, speedometer drive, and heating and air-conditioning system, depending on the type of car you have.

As you start shopping with excitement to be converting your current engine with an electric conversion kit, start by using some of the filters to narrow your search and save you some time. Check the seller’s terms and conditions for postage costs and delivery timeframes. If you have any questions about the kit, email the seller directly before finalising your purchase. You can also get electrical terminals and an electric car jack as well.
