Abstract:
    EV conversion is the conversion of a gasoline car into a completely electric one, that is going to run on electric motor and batteries.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    This idea is going to eliminate the use of fossil fuels in our transport vehicles, eventually reducing the individual carbon footprint and its impact on the environment. It will serve as an essential step towards the alleviation of global warming and climate change in our country.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   As climate change is affecting every human being, it becomes the responsibility of each and every one of us to shift towards less environmentally harmful resources, to play our part in environmental sustenance. Hence, this idea will be relevant to everyone and will benefit the total human population
How will the solution works
    For performing an electric vehicle conversion, we would be removing the vehicle's internal combustion engine and other components related to it. These may include fuel tank, exhaust system, carburettor, clutch, radiator, etc. All of this will then be replaced with Li-ion batteries, motor/s, controller/s, and other supplementary components such as an electronic differential system. We will be using a 72V setup and 10 – 20 kW BLDC motor/s for the conversion of Suzuki Mehran.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    Currently, there are no EV conversions being done in Pakistan. Moreover, this project is also unlike most of the conversions presently going on in the world, as we would be manufacturing our own motor controller, which would reduce the conversion cost significantly.
