How to build your own electric cars

Why would I want to send a post on how to build your own electric cars on this blog?

Many technological development’s major leaps occurred as a product of some crises, wars or military competition. The internet, the space exploration (and therefore the technological byproducts that they created), the stealth fighter jets, and so many others that I need to dig back into my old books to write them all here. These progresses can be said to have happened because of the pressures from the environment at that time.

So, what relation does this have with electric cars and the title of this blog, Electrical Installations? A lot actually.

The technology that makes up an electric car system has been around a long time. I am not sure how long. By a blind guess, I would say 20 years or more. Please correct me if I am wrong here.

However, who cares for electric cars?

Why should we care for this “old” technology now?

We should care because a new global crisis has started; not just one crisis but two crises are coming up fast simultaneously – the global warming and the energy crises. Both of these are global crises and in this interconnected world, all peoples of this world will have to suffer the consequences.

Everybody must be concerned and everybody should do what he or she can. If we don’t do what we can, then how can we expect the world’s government to do what they can in order to contain this crises?

Automobiles are one of the contributors to the global warming. We can debate on how many percent are contributed by these machines, but where the emissions can be shut off, we should do it without talking too much. That is how to get things done.

We are lucky because the electric car technology has already been here a long time. This can help us shut down the car emissions fast. In my opinion, this is something that everybody can easily do.

I have always considered cars and trucks as among the mechanical machines. However, with these crises coming closer and the electric car technology getting more popular, I think now these machines should be in the domain of electricians and electrical engineers.

For this reason I have decided to expand the scope of this blog to cover the electric car technology and also the related alternative forms of electricity producing machines such as the solar panels and the wind-powered electric generators.

Therefore, from today on you can also read some articles on solar electrical installations and wind-powered electrical plants on this blog.

With that said, I am going to end this post by pointing out to the readers where you can get the reading materials and step-by-step instructions on how to build your own electric cars.

Click on the link and see what the advertiser have to say. You have nothing to lose. Advertisers’ online landing pages are always full of information even though you still have to filter out the ridiculous claims when you see them. Ridiculous claims or not, we still have to buy cars so we can go to work.

See you in the next post.
