Choosing An Electric Motor For Electric Car Conversion

For more information on the AC-50 Kit – Click here

The benefits of using an Electric Vehicle (EV) are multifold.

Unfortunately, if you were to send you car to be converted to run purely on electricity by a professional mechanic, it will cost you upward of $8500.

The investment is too high for most car owners.

The alternative to enjoy the benefits of using an EV is by doing the retrofitting process yourself via a Do It Yourself Electric Car project at home.

The idea of the EV conversion is to remove the internal combustion engine and its associated components such as the gas tank, fuel distribution lines and radiators and replace it with an electric motor.

The additional free space created will be used to store the batteries.

The mileage that an electric car can cover per charge will depend on the number of batteries on board, the type of batteries, the age of the batteries, the motor horsepower and the net weight of the car.

To run the electric car, you can start plugging your it into your homes electrical outlet and let it charge over night.

During the day as you start up the vehicle, the alternator will kick on and charge the batteries as you drive, everything else that is not run off of gasoline will work as it always has, right down to the brake system.

If you do not feel completely comfortable about going total electric, you may decide to just purchase a hybrid car conversion kit that will run on electricity when you are stopped at a traffic light, and when the light turns green, the gasoline motor will engage again.

This electric car conversion kit will double your gas mileage, and save you hundreds of dollars in a year’s time.

Saving Cost On The EV Battery Bank

Do you want to know how to save cost on the electric car battery bank?

One option is to use reconditioned deep cycle batteries.

To learn more on reviving weak battery, check out the EZ Battery Reconditioning program.

In the program, you will learn how to:

  1. Get old or “dead” golf cart batteries, industrial or L16 batteries
  2. Recondition them back to 100% of their working condition
  3. Use those “like-new” batteries instead of buying new overpriced batteries to save a lot of money

The guide will also show you how to recondition many other types of old, dead batteries back to 100% of their working condition again (so they’re just like new), including:

  • Car batteries
  • Laptop batteries
  • Cell Phone batteries
  • Marine batteries

So if you’re ready to learn how to recondition all types of batteries…

…back to 100% of their working condition

    Hi Will,
    I have a 1970 NSU Ro80 that I’ve wanted to convert to electric for a few years… but is probably going to have to wait a few more.
    I actually own 3 of these vehicles, but one in particular has a very good (mostly rust-free) body, which I think would make an ideal donor.
    These vehicles have sufficient space for a decent-sized battery pack in the large boot and more cells in the forward engine bay. They have a very low drag co-efficient, and would make a very interesting conversion.
    I recall in around late 2013 / early 2014 (when reviewing potential motors), that the TransWarp 11 may been the best suited, coupled directly to the original Ro80 gearbox (to act mainly as a transfer box). Though I have not looked at what is currently available. I do know that it would require a high torque motor and regenerative braking.
    For those who don’t know;
    NSU were the first to produce Wankel rotary engine vehicles, the Ro80 being a front wheel drive 4 door ‘saloon’ with 3-speed semi-automatic transmission (effectively a manual gearbox with servo-electric operated clutch, from which I understand the Porsche Sport-o-matic was derived), power steering, 4 wheel disc brakes, independent coil suspension, and a multitude of other ‘before its time’ features.
    And I’d often heard that those that couldn’t afford an Ro80 in the day, often resorted in purchasing a Merc.
    Also, one reason (of a few) why it will wait about another 3 years, is that it is likely I may be able to obtain an electric forklift battery pack around then, as I know of one that will be due replacement in about 2020.
    The forklift was fitted with new battery in Jan 2009 (model: 24BMPE15, 48V, 525AH… consisting of 24 x 6 v cells in series-parallel). It had several cells replaced in the last couple of year of its life (cells had swollen), until June 2015 when it was again replaced (the installer having kept the removed battery, and charged a fee to ‘dispose of it’!).
    So it will be due replacement again in around 2020 … and I may be able to keep it (avoiding ‘the fee’!).
    I could use the best 16 or 20 of the cells, reducing the resultant ‘potential’ capacity to 350 or 437.5 AH respectively.
