Abstract: Thevehicles in use around the world have produced serious problems to the environment and the depletion of the earth’s petroleum is the motivation to the researchers to develop the alternative way to our daily life. This research paper focuses on development of overall electrical wiring system - low current installation between the controller, high voltage installation and engine compartment installation for Electric Vehicle (EV) conversion. This conversion system used electrical energy stored in rechargeable lead acid batteriesto drive three phase AC Induction electric motor and equipped with controller build by Curtis. The vehicle successfully runs on full electric power but further improvement and modification need to take into action to improve the performance of the vehicle in tern of speed and motor torque by fine tuning of the controller.
