    You would probably be much better off converting to diesel than electric. The initial cost would be much less, only two batteries are required instead of a whole battery bank (which is expensive to recycle), the pollution is emitted where ever your vehicle is at rather than concentrated around a power plant, diesel fuels is cheap, if you are going somewhere and run out of fuel, you can pull into the nearest Shi* and Git and fill up rather than trying to figure out how to charge your batteries and waiting on it, and diesel technology is mature.

    Technically, you should strap a battery powered drill to a touch red wagon and phone it an electric powered automobile. maximum electric powered vehicles were conversions the position the engine is replaced with an electric powered motor and lead acid batteries are put in in shipment parts. those have a tendency to have restricted determination, restricted speed or both yet will be achieved on the low-cost. besides the undeniable fact that the $six hundred budget is slightly low, even the Mechanix Illustrated UrbaElectric from the mid 70's replaced right into a $a million,500 challenge again contained in the 70's. for sure, they could always argue that they used scrap backyard batteries, to boot as a scrap backyard commonplace automobile and so on. you may actual stay less than budget in case you concentration on all the factors to be loose.

    I don't know about the legalities --- but it's probably cheaper and easier to buy an electric car rather than do the conversion.

    Investigate if LPG (Liquified Petroleum Gas) is an option, it's all the rage here in Australia... half the price of petrol and far less emissions.

    If you are wondering about changing motors from gas to electric. Not an option. You buy an electric car, or electric hybrid(combo gas/electric).

    Absolutely you can. Here are some EV hobbyists in Ontario, and their cars:
