In the field of electric vehicles, Tesla has obvious advantages in driving performance and range. Recently, ev West, a well-known automobile modification company in the United States, has launched a new electric refitting kit to make it easier for those traditional fuel vehicles to become electric vehicles. This retrofit kit uses Tesla Motors and will be suitable for any car that can accept a small Chevrolet engine.
EV West is equipped with a bracket that allows thickening to any bracket with a Chevy LS or Chevy small-block V-8 engine, which not only covers decades of the Chevrolet product line, but any vehicle that can be converted to work with the engine will also support Tesla motor modifications.
The electric retrofit kit includes the motor and bracket as well as the power inverter. As Tesla does not sell new motors to anyone, the motors used have been refurbished by EV West. This retrofit kit does not require a gearbox and is directly connected to the drive shaft. Before entering the propeller shaft and differential, it has a 2:1 reducer.
EV West recommends a 4:1 rear with an overall transmission ratio of 8:1. This, combined with smaller wheels and tires, will provide gearing similar to the standard Tesla. If you want to realize the electric modification, the price is not cheap. The whole modification time will take 1-2 months, and the cost is 30000 US dollars. If we add batteries and other additional components to form a more complete power system, it will cost US $50000.
