Ferrari electric car

Conversion of petrol cars into electrical vehicles has almost become a trend these days. Not that the concern for environmental hazards has ignited the spirit of the manufacturers of the electric cars, but the desire to make the cars like Ferrari faster and more efficient has been the impetus.

Premium cars like BMWs, Porsches, and Ferraris are getting transformed into their faster versions that run on electricity. When a car hits a tree, it is now a piece of good news for Tesla motors who are taking out the spare parts of those vehicles and using them to construct an electrically run version of the car which is faster.

Engines, gearboxes, and many other parts are being put to use for making these vehicles. Hence, nothing is wasted any longer. Though the process of conversion varies from one firm to another, the trends remain equally tempting for the entire industry.

The Origin

Mr Morgan, who holds the conversion of Ferrari 308 to his credit, mentioned that he was inspired by a little electric bike used to ferry snacks and parts. The power and speed of the little electronics amazed him and he decided to make more of such things.

Using the new and recovered parts, he started his journey 3 years back. He admitted that he started concerting the petrol cars into electric vehicles, not with a concerned heart filled with thoughts of environmental protection. Instead, it was the simplicity to operate, and the enhanced speed that attracted him more towards an electric car.

His efforts made a Ferrari that can go from 0-60mph in 3.5 seconds possible. The numbers clearly show that the speed has been doubled when compared with the petrol-driven version of the car.

The Effects

Though making electric cars is fun to most of the manufacturers, it has also impacted the economies substantially. The value of a regular car starts depreciating as it gets on the road. But, for classic models of Ferrari, Porsches, or BMW, the prices appreciate with time. Hence, the impact of the economy associated with the automobile industry is immense.

Though mostly the classic cars get this turn-around, Matthew Quitter of London Electric Cars boasts this conversion for every variety. To make cheaper versions, government help could be a way out.

The Price Concern

As of now, most of the electric cars are pretty expensive. If less costly versions are required, the production has to go under the scale of economies. When mass production starts, the price will automatically be curved. But this mass level production must also be backed by a team of mechanics who would know all about mending the electric vehicles. Or else, there would be no one to fix the problem when electric cars break down.
