Nowadays, an electric vehicle (EV) is increasingly popular among researchers and professionals due to greenhouse gas emission issues and energy supply shortage in coming years. However, the development of the EV through conversion method is still cloudy to general peoples. This paper depicts the development of converting the commercial internal combustion engine (ICE) based donor vehicle into the electric vehicle while retaining its original transmission. The aim is to provide the minimum step of conversion process without ignoring the safety aspect. The conversion method is described step-by-step to provide better understanding to the reader. The conversion process begins with the disassembling of combustion engine while the transmission box is remained in place. The electric motor-transmission coupling plates which consist of inner and outer parts are designed as accurate as possible based on the shape and measurement of both shaft and chassis. The controller unit is the heart and brain of the EV will do all the heavy lifting by interlink the batteries with the electric motor. The batteries that consist of several Lithium Polymer (LiPo) cell will provide all the energy to power up the controller and to drive the electric motor. The interaction between this three components (batteries, controller and electric motor) as well as safety issue is thoroughly elaborated. At the end, the performances of completed EV with high acceleration rate is analyzed and presented.
