Conversion cum Retrofitting

Electric vehicle conversion refers to the process of transforming a traditional, internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicle into an electric vehicle (EV). This conversion involves replacing the vehicle’s gasoline or diesel engine with an electric motor and installing a battery pack to store and provide electrical power. We can also develop hybrid vehicle that runs on […]

Suspension

The suspension system is a network of parts that links a vehicle’s wheels to its frame. It serves two primary functions: The suspension system includes various components: There are two main types of suspension systems: independent and dependent. In independent suspension, each wheel operates independently, so one wheel’s bump doesn’t affect the others. In dependent

Steering

The steering system is a set of components that enables a driver to manage the vehicle’s direction. It comprises the following key parts: There are two primary types of steering systems: manual and power-assisted. In a manual system, the driver exerts all the force needed to turn the wheels, whereas in a power-assisted system, a

Wire Harness

Wire harnesses are like the nervous system of electric vehicles (EVs). They are intricate networks of wires and cables that connect and power various electrical components within the vehicle. Think of them as the car’s wiring backbone, ensuring that all the electrical signals get to where they need to go. There are two primary types

Embedded Systems

Embedded systems are like the secret agents inside electric cars, working behind the scenes to make sure everything runs smoothly. These systems are like mini-computers with specific jobs. One of their important tasks is taking care of the car’s battery. They check how much power is left and if it’s getting too hot or too

Level of Chargers

There are three levels of EV charging: Level 1, Level 2, and Level 3. The higher the level, the faster the charging process because more power is delivered to the vehicle.  Different EVs charge at different speeds on each level because they can accept varying levels of power from the charger, also known as Electric
