Maruti Gypsy Electric Conversion Kit

Tadpole Projects is a startup that provides smooth driving experience. Four battery pack options are given on its website. These options are as follows:-

Two 48V electric vehicle architectures, with one 1440 Wh module and one 1536 Wh module.

There is also a 60V architecture with 1920 Wh modules and a 72V architecture with 8640 Wh modules.

All these battery modules come with IP65/67 rating making them resistant to external dust, dirt and water. They also have short circuit, overcharge and under-discharge protection which further adds to their safety. Along with this, there is also an option of EV kit up to 30 kW and smart BMS for 1 kW to 37 kW (49.6 bhp) electric motors. It takes 2 to 6 hours to charge them.

How to Convert to Electric Vehicle ?

The process involves replacing engine components, finding a better location for the battery, battery setup and adding an electric motor to the existing drivetrain. This is a great way to extend the life of old and unusable ICE vehicles. If you have any emotional feelings attached to a vehicle, then instead of scrapping it, it can be converted into an electric vehicle. Apart from increasing their lifespan by converting old vehicles into EVs, they can also be used as vintage cars.
