Electric Vehicle Conversion in Malaysia
Electric vehicle conversion is poised to emerge as a significant business sector in Malaysia in the coming years. Having a comprehensive understanding of converting internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles to electric vehicles (EVs) is crucial, especially when considering safety aspects. As the industry trends towards higher power and denser batteries, this knowledge becomes even more essential for engineers involved in the conversion process. Malaysia’s challenging climate adds to the importance of safety-conscious design, given its hot weather, which can be unsuitable for batteries, and occasional heavy rains leading to floods, making improperly designed EVs potentially hazardous.
