Do It Yourself (DIY) Electric Car Conversion Video

Do you know how a Do It Yourself (DIY) electric car looks like?

From the outside, it looks just like any other car on the street. The secret is on the inside. Instead of a dirty and noisy internal combustion engine, the torque comes from a DC electric motor.

The video above shows a chap by the name Gavin Shoebridge from New Zealand. Gavin actually converted his 1987 Mitsubishi Treadia into a full ledge electric vehicle (EV).

How much does his EV conversion project cost?

The cost of the project is about 12,000 New Zealand dollar. The EV has 12 deep cycle batteries and is capable of going 60km per charge.

Gavin actually documented his entire EV conversion project on videos. He just released a manual call Electric Conversion Made Easy.

It is an e-book with High Definition (HD) instructional videos teaching people step by step how to convert a gas guzzle to run on pure electricity. Click on the link below for more information.

    Dear Will Yap!

    A device that pumps electricity battery electric vehicle weighs only a few pounds, does not change the design of electric and can be installed on it for a few hours, it is worth the whole set is already in finished form only 50 dollars at most. A mileage electric car it will increase by several times. You probably something not understood in the proposal or googol bad translation.
    I wish you success and prosperity.
