There are a lot of things to consider before you go “green”.
The average conversion for an electric car has a
realistic range of 30 to 100 miles in everyday driving conditions
depending on the type of batteries you have and the weight of the
vehicle. If your commute is more then 35 miles one way in very hilly
terrain an electric car may not be a good idea. However, if your commute
is on average terrain and is about 20 miles each way an electric car is
perfect. If you are a two car family and one car is usually used for
short trips you may want to consider an electric car.
You will want to have easy access to be able to charge your car. When you charge an electric car, you will plug it in at night and then be good to go in the morning. Do you have an acceptable electrical outlet in or near your garage? If so, then an electric car will be very good for you.
Do you have the proper tools to build an electric car? With conversion kits available today most people with basic hand and power tools can do the work themselves. Some tasks can be contracted out such as welding. The only special tools you will need are a torque wrench, cable crimpers, and an engine crane; all of which can be rented.
However, if you aren’t really good with engines and mechanics, once you get your electric car conversion kit, you may want to contract the services of an experienced mechanic. These people know all the components of a car and are able to accurately determine where changes need to be made in order to convert your vehicle to an electric car.
Once you know that you want to make the change, go out and buy your electric car conversion kit. Then, once it’s done, you will know that you are doing your part for the environment as well as for yourself!
