  • Electric vehicle conversion


    This elderly Fiat employs batteries that can be mounted in any position In automobile engineering, electric vehicle conversion is the replacement of a car's combustion engine and connected components with an electric motor and batteries, to create an all-electric vehicle. Another option is to replace a large combustion engine with an electric motor (for power) and a small combustion engine (for speed), creating a hybrid electric vehicle or a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle. The general trend appears to be that ground vehicles will "go electric," and automakers have slowly but steadily responded to public demand by producing both hybrid electric vehicles which get gasoline, and electric vehicles which get similar or better mileage by mpg equivalent efficiency rating. In general, commercially-manufactured electric vehicles are inhibited by the limited range per charge of batteries (up to ), battery charge times that are slower than gasoline filling times, apparent greater initial cost over combustion engines, and potentially high service costs for used or worn-out batteries.
