Gav's Front Wheel Drive Electric Car (Conversion)
Can I convert a front wheel drive car to electric? I was wondering if it would be just as easy as a rear wheel drive, or even possible.
I talked to Gavin Shoebridge, who converted his front wheel drive Tredia to electric. He says:
"Yep, the Tredia's a front wheel drive. Believe it or not, it's been a piece of cake! I was originally looking for a rear wheel drive car as front wheel drive looked too complex for me, but as it turns out it was no hassle at all. I can't imagine it being any harder or easier than a rear wheel drive car. Don't let it put you off if you have a front wheel drive donor car in mind."
To talk to Gav about his car, visit the DIY electric car forums and look for a guy named "KiwiEV".
