Building a Homemade Electric Car With Less Than 300 Dollars in Parts
By administrator on August 23, 2009
If you decide to build an electric car on your own, you made a good decision and it is not diffiuclt at all. Owning a lightweight, economy coupe that has been converted to electricity is not only efficient, but it is an excellent choice! You should note, that if everything is done correctly in the conversion process and the selection and placement of components is OK, than you can expect your new electric car to alst even longer than with a gasoline engine. Electric car conversion kits are easily obtained, especially for those lightweight models whose motor is located in the rear such as the Volkswagen Beetle.
Converting lightweight vehicles to build your own electric car allows the owner to utilize a smaller electric motor, which is less expensive and weighs less. By having a lighter overall weight, the electric car will need less power to start and also need less power to take off and to accelerate. In the same way the miles you can drive before you have to recharge your electric car is increased enormously in many common driving conditions.
Owners who need more load capacity or more room to place the batteries will find that a compact sedan is more suited to their preferences. Some of the most commonly sold EV Conversions, such as the latest Ford Ranger EV, are made using this size vehicle. A great example for an electric car conversion is the Honda Civic, the back seat has been retained, nine lead-acid flooded batteries have been placed deep inside the trunk and an additional nine batteries have been placed in the engine area. By replacing the nickel-metal hydride variety of batteries and by putting in another system to manage batteries this feat is accomplished.
Before attempting to build your own electric car, check with state and local authorities. Please note tha in some locations in the US there is a law that the gross vehicle weight rating has to be a certain level. You should note that driving such a car could be illegal, if the conversion causes the total car weight to exceed the recommended, orginal design weight. You should note that under certain circumstances such a vehicle may get insurance cancelled. In order to avoid such catastrophes, hobbyists are advised to increase the spring rating, increase the shock length, make suspension modifications, and to use the smallest and lightest sized batteries and motor to suit their needs.
