Q: DO AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSIONS WORK FOR CONVERSIONS? 

A: Older automatics can be made to work but they will consume 10-15% of the mechanical energy from the EV motor which reduces the driving range proportionately. Therefore they will require more batteries to get the same range as a car with a manual transmission. Modern cars (year 2000 and later) with transmission control modules (TCMs) are very difficult to make work because they work closely with the engine control module. Once gas engine is removed the TCM will not function.
