Are you as tired as I am of hearing about the price of gas these days? The gas prices rose once again due to the latest hurricane that hit through our nation. This time around my family and I were not affected with this new price hike. Why, you may ask?
We completed our first electric car conversion and are really satisfied with the results. No longer do we feel any panic when we drive by the gas stations or listen to the news. Have you considered making the transition to an electric powered car? If you are like us, then this has crossed your mind, but you may not be sure if it really is a feasible solution.
We had this same question. We research on the Internet electric car conversions to find more information. Our specific questions were whether or not building an electric car was actually achievable, how much would it cost us to convert our car to electric, and what were the steps to get started. We don’t have an automotive background so we needed as much help as possible. However, we wanted to ensure that this would not be a vehicle improvement nightmare at the same time.
We looked into possibly hiring a professional to convert our vehicle. Due to the rising demand for electric car conversions, then it can be very costly to hire one. The cost of a professional will continue to increase as the prices of oil climbs due to the demand. Doing the work ourselves was the best option for us because we could do it for less than $500.
Building an electric car is much simplier than you may expect. The key is to have the right tools and equipment in place. The information that we used helped us to go step by step in the process. The entire process can be completed in less time and with less frustration depending on your level of knowledge.
Converting your vehicle simply requires that your gas powered engine be replaced by an electric motor. The motor will run off of rechargeable batteries as its main power source. The choice in the motors and batteries that are used will affect the overall performance of your vehicle. These two components influence the distance that your car will be able to go without needing a recharge.
Using an electric car how to guide will assist in taking a beginner go from start to finish. Guides that provide complete instructions with pictures and diagrams are the best to get started with. A well written guide will also have resources available to you to show you were you can get your tools and parts for very affordable prices.
Electric cars will continue to grow in demand due to our economy and the current state of our nation. Building your own electric car can assist you in decreasing your dependency on oil for the future. Imagine not caring one bit when gas goes up to $7-$10 a gallon. Hopefully, we will never see this point in our lifetime.
