Converting existing cars to EVs slowly becoming practical

The kit for the Honda Civic, model years 2001 to 2005, was the brainchild of a team at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh. Chances are you’d need a mechanic to install it, where it would take two to three days at most shops. The other consideration is the engine and transmission, along with other unneeded collateral systems, can be resold to help defray the expense of conversion.
