Q: DO YOU OFFER LEAD ACID BATTERIES FOR EV CONVERSIONS?
A: Lead acid batteries are not normally provided with our kits but may be considered on a case by case basis.
Most conversions are now using lithium batteries due to the longer life and significantly less weight. Due to the weight of lead acid you will need to improve the suspension to carry the added load. Lithium is 3-4 times lighter than lead acid so most often no suspension changes are needed. Lithium is 2-3 times the cost of the lead acid batteries but lasts 3-4 times longer so they end up costing less in the long term.
