Benefits of converting your vehicle to electric
Would you like to drive an electric vehicle? Buying a new electric car is not the only option. You can also convert your existing vehicle to electric! Electric car conversion is the removal of the diesel or petrol internal combustion engine, and replacement with an electric motor, batteries and a control system. What are the benefits of converting your vehicle to electric? We made a list of six benefits of converting your vehicle to electric.
1 NO-EMISSIONS: DRIVING A CONVERTED VEHICLE REDUCES AIR POLLUTION (AND SAVES LIVES)
Compared to combustion engine cars, electric vehicles are much cleaner. When a car doesn’t have a tailpipe, as is the case with electric vehicles, it won’t produce carbon dioxide emissions while driving. An electric vehicle gives little to no emissions, one electric vehicle can save an average of 1.5 million grams of CO2 over a year! As an example, that’s about the equivalent of four return flights from Nairobi to Addis Ababa
This reduction in emissions is well-needed in East Africa, as well as worldwide. WHO data shows that 9 out of 10 people breathe air containing high levels of pollutants that exceeds WHO guideline limits, and the highest exposures are found in low- and middle-income countries. This means that 91% of the world’s population live in places where the levels of air pollution exceeds those guideline limits.
2 EXPENSIVE? DISCOVER THE LONG-TERM ECONOMIC BENEFITS OF DRIVING ELECTRIC
Converting your vehicle to electric not only lowers the initial investment of a new car, but also reduces operational costs.
When you convert your vehicle with Boss Customz, there is also an onboard fleet operations system integrated into the system, that monitors your driving patterns. It increases in-depth knowledge of routes, usage patterns, and optimization possibilities for lowering running costs. This gives you the opportunity to optimize your driving habits, to save even more money!
3 AN ELECTRIC CAR IS RELIABLE, POWERFUL, AND RESPONSIVE
To make sure the vehicles are powerful and reliable, we convert them with electric powertrains developed in one of the world’s harshest terrains in Africa. We focus on performance, balancing torque, and high speeds, which makes our electric vehicle conversions reliable as well. You will therefore experience instant torque throughout the whole acceleration, as soon as you press down the pedal. We are creating a world-class off-road vehicle driving experience, by positioning the center range extension battery in a way it improves vehicle dynamics, minimizing roll moment, as well as installation speed while lowering the center of gravity.
4 A CONVERTED CAR NEEDS LESS MAINTENANCE
A lot of times when people want to convert their vehicle to electric, the vehicle is several years old. Everyone knows, the older your vehicle, the more maintenance is involved. This could be a good reason to convert your vehicle to electric. An electric vehicle requires less maintenance than a conventional vehicle. This is because electric motors have fewer parts than internal combustion engines. There is no need to change the oil, spark plugs, drive belts, transmission fluid, or fuel filters when you’re driving an electric vehicle. Especially when cars age, this can result in significant savings, but no car is fully maintenance-free. Also, electric vehicles need to have a maintenance check every once in a while.
