If you’re looking to convert a car to run on electricity, you’ve probably got a thousand questions racing through your head. I know I did when I first started. One big question is about which are the main parts of an electric car. Luckily there are only three.
There you have it. Those are the three main parts of an electric car, and it should give you an idea of what price ranges there are, and what you could aim to build your car for.
Electric vehicles are very simple things, but there’s still much to be explained, from choosing the right motor, to using lithium batteries for long range driving, to joining your motor to your existing gearbox.
