How to convert a car to electric
The difficulty of the conversion depends on the car you choose, the power you aim to have, and the range that you want.
Theoretically with enough time and money you can convert any car to electric, however, some cars may be much easier than others. Manual cars are ideal for electric vehicle conversions. Smaller older cars enable you to have less weight, and consequently more range, and power. Cars need to have ample space for batteries as well. Some good options are: an old Volkswagen Beetle, Volkswagen Bus, Volkswagen Thing, Volkswagen Bug, Austin Mini, an old Mazda Miata, Porsche 911, Kharman Gia, a Samba. You can kind of get an idea of a lot of older german cars and or other older manual small cars.
The process on paper is simplified as: gutting the car, mating clutch to motor, connecting battery and controls. The simplest way is to buy a premade conversion kit that will inevitably save you time engineering your own bits and pieces, as well as money figuring it out on your own.
