Why You Should Convert Your Gasoline Car Into An Electric Using A Conversion Kit

Converting a gasoline car into an electric vehicle (EV) is easier, cheaper, and cleaner than people may think. One can purchase EV conversion kits available at a relatively low cost and can be installed by anyone with basic automotive knowledge. The process involves removing the gas engine and installing an electric motor, battery pack, and control system inside the vehicle’s chassis. A conversion kit also converts the alternator from charging the car’s battery to charging the house’s batteries during regenerative braking when they hit the brake pedal. This allows for seamless energy generation without having to plug in or wait for charging stations when running out of charge on a long trip away from home base.

It’s Simple

Installing a conversion kit is simple. The whole process takes about a day, and people can probably do it themselves if they are handy enough, but if not, many mechanics are willing to do the installation for them. You can purchase EV conversion kits with all the components necessary for installing an electric motor (and battery), so no extra tools or parts are needed. Also included in the kit will be an instruction manual that will walk them through every step of the installation to ensure everything is done correctly.

It’s Cheap

On average, a conversion kit costs $2,000 to $4,000 in the US. This includes all of the equipment needed for installation. The majority of people who convert their cars have no problem paying this upfront cost because they can get back nearly all their money in tax incentives and rebates (more on that later). Although the US has a long road ahead when it comes to implementing electric vehicles on a large scale, there are still things such as conversion kits and rolling out government incentives for electric vehicles that will help shift the stage in its favor.

Finally—and perhaps most importantly—electric vehicles cost less over their lifetime thanks to savings on gas and maintenance costs associated with internal combustion engines vs. electric motors.

It’s Cleaner

One of the most important reasons to convert a car to electric is that it’s cleaner. EVs have zero emissions, while gasoline cars emit harmful pollutants into the environment, including carbon dioxide (CO2). While CO2 emissions are not directly dangerous to breathe in, they contribute to climate change, which can cause more extreme weather events like hurricanes and floods.

Additionally, EVs are more efficient than gasoline cars because they use battery power instead of combustion engines. This means that it takes less energy from fossil fuels to get them going—and even though these batteries require electricity from coal or other sources at times (which isn’t exactly environmentally friendly), those sources don’t produce CO2 as a byproduct, so the overall effect is still better for the planet than with traditional gas-powered vehicles.

It’s More Efficient

Electric vehicles are much more efficient than gasoline-powered cars. The motors used in electric vehicles have fewer moving parts than a traditional internal combustion engine and thus require less energy to run. Furthermore, they don’t need transmissions, which can decrease efficiency by up to 10%. Electric motors also use regenerative braking to generate electricity.

To Combat Climate Change

People will be doing their part to combat climate change, and the world will be a better place for it. While they might not see immediate or noticeable results when switching to an electric vehicle, over time, they’ll notice that the amount of greenhouse gasses in the atmosphere has gone down. This means that they are collectively doing something positive for the planet as well as themselves!
