The automotive industry is now growing rapidly around the world converting the old classic cars with enhanced technology, which can run on batteries.
Small organizations are buying old cars and a few parts of Tesla and Nissan to convert the old petrol engine into battery-operated cars such as BMWs, Ferraris, and Porches with the help of modern technology. The basic process of conversion remains the same but may vary firm to firm depending upon the modifications required.
These new modified battery-operated cars are easy to maintain and even faster than the old version of petrol cars. The changes made are not huge, as it needs to be alterable for future use. No one thought that 5 years ago, Tesla could be a big hit. As the world is now moving to clean energy these customizations are quite a hit among owners of classic cars.
It is observed that Ferrari goes 0-60 mph in 3.5 seconds if it is in a well-maintained condition on a normal gas tank and the car can go to 0-60 mph in 2.7 seconds if driven on battery.
The current issue with the conversion of cars is the use of expensive “lithium batteries”, but battery-operated cars are cost-efficient, as they require little maintenance. Moreover, classic cars have very low risks of breakdown and overheating owing to the usage of novel technology.
The best solution, for now, is the use of refurbished batteries. Batteries from Laptop that is intended to be scrapped can be useful for converting a family car.
Many inventors still doubt that the use of batteries still requires electricity, which is mostly generated from substitutes like coal and oil. So is this a great alternative to petrol cars in future? This is still a debate for most of the people, but we can surely move to generate electricity with the available free resource such as wind energy, solar energy, and tide energy.
