Modification Nov 6, 2021

Hello People. This article is about how do Electric Vehicles change the future of car modification. Car modification has a special place in the automotive sector. From simple restoration to serious upgrading to fabricating unique parts, people like to present their customized vehicles on road.

Electric vehicles are the future mode of full fledged transportation because of environmental benefits. Is it still possible to modify an electric vehicle? What are the limitations? Internal combustion engine cars and Electric Vehicles are fundamentally different when it comes to their engines.

How do Electric Vehicles change the future of car modification 

Engine Upgradation

In case of  Internal combustion engine cars, when you are upgrading the engine, you are modifying things like cylinder bore, cylinder heads, exhaust manifolds, turbos, superchargers, even whole motors in some cases. The idea is to get that air-fuel mixture ratio right in order to move your car even faster.

But with an EV, there are no turbos or superchargers to tune. No valves or rods to reinforce or replace with those made of stronger metal. There is simply a battery pack and the various electrical components that push that vehicle forward at a quiet pace.

However in both Internal combustion engine cars and Electric Vehicles, it is possible to change cosmetic things. You can always change the paint, interior materials, and add limited body work. There are available upgrades to the accessories, sound systems, wheels and tires, and even suspension. You can tint the windows. However, EVs require a shift from the do-it-yourself mechanic to a specialized computer programmer.

Tuning an Electric Vehicle

In order to tune your EV knowledge of programming is required. Electric and hybrid cars are complex . The knowledge base to modify a car changes from one of mechanical and physical properties to one that plays out on a screen. You need to know more about coding, overclocking, electrical engineering, and computer programming if you want to modify an EV. You previous knowledge of engines will not be sufficient to tune an electric vehicle.

Electric vehicles have interconnected systems. In internal combustion vehicle programs, each system could be developed more or less independently. But in an electric vehicle, the battery, motor, cooling, chassis, transmission, and electronics, and even the suspension, are all developed as a complete package in a single, very large team. The resulting systems work much faster and in complete harmony with each other and are in fact already engineered to maximize performance as much as possible.

Understanding of EV synergy is essential for modification

EV synergy proves useful in a vehicle during production. But it could be difficult when it comes to swapping components to modify your car. Working with high voltage electrical systems in modern EVs can be very dangerous, with potentially deadly consequences if certain service procedures are not followed properly.

However, that doesn’t mean EV modification isn’t possible. It is very much possible. But there are plenty of safety measures to be accounted for. It’s all about understanding the systems you’re working with and the dangers inherent to those systems.  

Possibilities for Upgrading an EV

In case of EVs, instead of horsepower, EVs boast about their power because it translates to range. More power means more range. However, if range isn’t your priority, modifications in EV is possible. For example, you could install higher voltage cables, aftermarket computers that allow for specific adjustments, re-wound motors, battery swaps, and even motor swaps.
