MG Midget Electric Car Conversion Kit?
MG Midget Electric Car Conversion
I am ready to rip apart my MG Midget to convert it to electric.
Which kit is recommended for this type of vehicle, and what would the cost/availability be?
Hi, Mark -
Allen Antonucci from Duke's Garage says:
"Lots of people make generic EV kits none of which I know anything about.
I would research which type a battery's you want to use first, because the cheaper the battery usually equals more weight. Lithium Ion battery packs run us around 13K. You need a motor, motor controller, charger, terminals and wire.
You could spend 10k-35k depending on which parts you decide to use. There are online stores for golf cart parts that should have everything you'll need."
Thank you, Allen!
