The Toyota Prius has a great many supporters, and among these enthusiasts are a good many who have either built their own Prius or have taken it apart and made their own modifications. One of these enthusiasts, or more than one, has decided to take his love of the Prius and turn it into a real electric car. A car that runs on electricity. This is something not possible with the Toyota Prius, which uses standard gasoline as the main power source. If you want to convert your Prius to run purely on electricity then there are some things you will first need. These include a donor Prius, a 9 volt battery, and an inverter.
If you don't have a donor Prius then the best solution is to find one close to you that is still being used. In order to change the mode of your Prius you will need the assistance of a jump start converter. Jump starts convert standard modes into electrical cars. You can get a jump start converter for about $500 or so, depending on where you buy it from.
The second necessary component for turning your Prius electric cars into true electric cars is a converter. Again, you can find jump start converters for a lot of money. Unfortunately, most people have never even heard of a DC current converter, much less know how to repair one. DC current compressors are used in many different industries, including everything from model rockets to dental floss.
There are also some companies making electrical vehicles, and they have chosen to make their vehicles a lot more fuel efficient, so that they are a lot more like gas models. These companies are called “hybrid technology innovators” and they are currently trying to perfect their EVs so that they can run on both gasoline and electricity. This is the goal of many hybrid electric car makers, and they are well on their way. However, there are limits to this technology right now, and there is still a long way to go until electric cars can travel both on gasoline and electricity.
Another very important part of an electric vehicle is its electric powertrain. An electric powertrain consists of a series of high-tech, extremely complex, high-torque electric motors arranged in series. These motors are linked together via a complex system of cables, connectors, and transfer switches, all of which combine to help the electric motor to provide torque to the rest of the transmission, which is then put through a transmission all by itself. The transmission of power to the rest of the engine is called a “sequential step” in automotive parlance. That is to say, in order for the transmission to function correctly, it must go in reverse, back to the engine for the final “step”. In a nutshell, the electric powertrain in modern day Prius cars is extremely complex.
The other piece of the puzzle that makes electric cars work is the onboard lithium ion batteries. These batteries are charged by direct current (DC) and then slowly charged by alternating current (AC). They have the capacity to store energy that is then used during the “pump” phase of an acceleration cycle. That is when the car is coasting and making its upward journey, and its batteries are in the best possible state of readiness to grab the amount of energy it needs to go forward.
