The electric car, also called electric vehicle or EV, has been around since the early1850s but since the inception of the electric starter in the internal-combustion engine, they have been almost forgotten. Now, with the rising levels of pollution caused by petroleum - based fuels and the possibility that these fuels are nearly almost used up, car owners are looking for various alternatives to prolong their driving lives. Because of that, people are beginning to notice the electric car, as well as other hybrids, again.
Doing an Electric car conversion is not a new idea. Many people have been modifying their gasoline fueled cars to run on electricity for the past years. Most of the electric cars that are seen on the roads today are practically made from home backyards and garages. This is due mainly to the low production of electric cars by automobile companies in spite of the many benefits that this kind of vehicle offers to us.
