The Essential Parts of a Classic Car EV Conversion

Want to restomod your vintage car to be better than a Tesla in Phoenix, AZ? Convert from a gas or diesel engine to an electric-powered one at Foremost EV. Replacing the engine with an electric motor allows you to breathe new life into an older vehicle past its prime.

What To Look Forward To In Your EV Conversion

You can convert almost any older gas or diesel-powered car into an electric vehicle. The conversion involves replacing the existing engine and transmission with a battery management system. This system depends on electrical energy to power up the vehicle and maintain safe speeds on the highway so you will need an electric charging station to charge up the battery pack that powers your vehicle.

Maximize Your Conversion With The Right Classic Car

Choosing a classic car that is lightweight or a compact-sized car weighing less than 3,000 pounds will help make sure you get the most out of your conversion. You also want to ensure your classic has enough storage space for a battery pack or two to help increase your range and keep your storage options open. Having a manual transmission will make your classic vehicle easier to convert, as well.

What You Don’t Need In An Electric Vehicle

A basic EV conversion focuses only on parts under the hood and chassis that need to be replaced. You do not have to replace door locks or manage additional electrical components, like rewiring the radio system unless you are interested in having those luxuries.

  • Gasoline-Powered Exhaust System
  • Gas Tank
  • Internal Combustion Engine With Pipes & Hoses
  • Transmission
  • Radiator & Starter

Revamping What Is Under The Hood

An EV conversion replaces the existing parts with a battery management system and electric motor controller. The engine is removed and replaced by the batteries, parts, and wiring, which run where the hoses and pipes are under the hood.

  • Battery Pack
  • Electric Motor
  • High-Voltage Cables
  • Instruments
  • Motor Controller
  • Power Cabling
  • Wiring

Optimizing Your EV Conversion

According to the U.S. Department of Energy, you can use one or more electric motors and extra battery packs. Owners will often add battery packs to increase the car’s range and torque. We make sure to balance the amount of weight your car is capable of holding throughout the frame, ensuring your classic vehicle maintains safety standards and is roadworthy.
