Convert Your Current Car To An Electric Car
Sometimes it seems like all the electric cars that you would actually consider buying are 2-5 years away from actually being available, electric car companies appear, release brilliant looking concept vehicles, and then disappear into the mysterious electric-car-black-hole-of-doom. There is one company out there that thinks they have the solution to this, they’re called EVX Laboratories and they take people’s road cars, pull out the oily bits and replace them with a tried and tested electric drive train (this is what you are looking at in the above picture). So far EVX have converted a Hummer H2, a Smart Car and a Mercedes SLK 350, the Merc has been entered into the Automotive X Prize and passed the initial phase with flying colours.
Head over to the website if you’d like to get an estimate on converting your current car, conversions start at $24,900 USD which may sound like a lot but it is less than a new car and arguably it is more environmentally friendly to convert a pre-exisiting car than to manufacture a new one from scratch.
