If you are new to the EV world and need a great reference guide, HPEVS suggests purchasing Eric Kriss's comprehensive how-to printed guide on converting a vehicle to electric. The book is based on the conversion that took place in 2012 of a 1969 Saab Sonett, but the information can be translated to any vehicle.
