Converting ICE Vehicles to EVs

Today's emerging question about vehicles is when will the electric vehicle (EV) replace the internal combustion engine (ICE) powered vehicle?  The answer is, NOW, and it's happening at lightning speed. The gasoline powered engine of today is finding competition from the smaller, more compact, quieter, faster, and cleaner to operate EV vehicles. 

 

It will take a while for the EVs to overtake what has been the mainstay in global transportation, but it's coming fast.  The gasoline engine is now considered one of the most inefficient devices that many of us use daily in terms of pollution, fuel, and maintenance costs.

Basically, electric conversion involves removing the entire internal combustion engine from a vehicle, installing an electric motor in its place, and adding a large bank of batteries.

Price of ICE To EV Conversion:


Conversions range between $30,000 - $50,000 USD for labor. Parts range between $15,000 - $25,000.  

 

But, for all this expense, you'll get a zero-emissions vehicle that costs only a few cents per mile to run. Your electric car will also be more reliable and require much less maintenance than a conventional one. Remember, gas-powered cars cost the owner about $1800 per year on average for fuel costs alone, and there is the additional expense of engine maintenance.  Electric cars have a better resell value and are more reliable overall, because there are fewer parts to fail. Most of the components are solid-state electronics with no moving parts. The engine of an electric car has a virtually infinite lifespan — the components will probably outlast the chassis.  After conversion, the only real

Older vehicles are often less efficient and release more carbon emissions than their newer counterparts, but many people choose to drive them anyway because, well, they look cool.

expense is the batteries, which will need to be replaced about every three to four years. 

EV enthusiasts usually favor smaller and lighter vehicles for conversion, especially older models with fewer features that add excess weight. Their charge range is longer and acceleration is  livelier than bigger and heavier rides since it takes less energy to propel a lighter vehicle.

SVD is excited to offer conversion services to the community and welcomes your inquiries!

 

Smaller engines in smaller foreign cars equal smaller conversion price tags than larger ones; beware, though, they leave less room for EV batteries.
