Electric Vehicle Motors
Supplier of Motors for On-Road Electric Vehicles
In addition to a motor for your electric vehicle, you will need to source a number of other components for your conversion. The main items are controller, battery charger and batteries. To assist you in the search, we have included below a list of suppliers for these components. These businesses are mostly located in the Sydney area, but can supply Australia-wide, either from their Sydney base, or through a network of offices around Australia.
Since not every enthusiast is in a position to do the conversion himself, we also include contact details for a firm which has the experience and capacity to put the conversion together for you.
