F-150 Electric Car Conversion?
I have a 2001 Ford F-150 that gets driven only a couple times a month, and for less then 50 miles. Would you know if there are conversion kits that would work for it?
Hi, Gary -
An EV conversion kit for the Ford Ranger, yes. For a Ford F-150, no. Your truck is a full sized truck, and by EV standards, heavy.
The electric car conversion kits that you see for sale are for commonly converted cars and trucks, like the light Chevy S-10, the Geo Metro, the VW Rabbit.
I don't mean to be discouraging, Gary, but any vehicle that was built in the US during the Bush II era is probably too heavy to convert to electric gracefully.
