Hi. I'm researching a potential Fiat 500 (classic) EV conversion, and I've done some searching, but I can't locate any step-by-step blogs or photo diaries.

I'm basically looking for a steer on what I would broadly need to do, and in what order.

I'd be grateful if anyone could point me towards anything useful please.

Thanks!

Thanks, that's really helpful. I love your MG conversion. Terrifying acceleration!

I'm thinking of a slightly more sedate performance for my Fiat 500 conversion. They're quite light, so I'm hoping to get 70mph top speed, 0-60 in under 10 seconds, and 80+ miles range out of the following setup...

Curtis brushless AC-20 motor
Curtis controller with liquid cooling
3 or 4 Tesla batteries
2.5kw charger

If I can source a donor car for around £5k, and the above items plus some miscellaneous bits for around £10k, I'm thinking that this is a £15k project ($19k USD).

Does that sound realistic? Could I do it for less/differently? Very grateful for any feedback from anyone at this early stage.
