What car is good for converting to an electric car?

link preview on facebook

I'm interested in a car that is lightweight, has a manual transmission, and has room for batteries. I'm trying to convert a gas car to an electric car, and I need one that is light, has manual transmission, room for batteries, etc, etc. Has anyone done that and has advice/know a good car for it? I have a limited price range, and I need a relatively cheap car for it. Any suggestions? Thanks.

If I were you, I'd use a Toyota MR2 spyder. You could save some weight if you swapped the somewhat high-performance tires for cheaper, thinner ones. Also, the engine is mid-rear, so the car will be well balanced when you replace that engine with your electric motor. If you needed extra space for batteries, you can remove the spare tire and use the small trunk in the front of the car.

its cheaper and safer to just buy one. The cars that are easiest to convert are older cars with mechanical brakes (no power brakes) and with mechanical steering (no power steering). These are pre 1975 imports from europe, MG, Triumph's, VW beetles, corvairs and others. There are kits in the $4000 to $1000 range. A little car will be on the low end. Make sure all the kits and work are certified by engineers.

To convert a car to electric, you will find that you don't need many of the thing at the gas car did, for instance the gas tank, radiator, and motor. the electric motor is much smaller the a gas one. many people are building a battery pack to go where the gas tank was along with using the extra space in the engine compartment.
