Bangalore: The rising fuel price, depletion of fossil fuels and increasing Carbon Dioxide emission is posing a great threat to the ecosystem. The Indian startup, EVI (Electric Vehicle India) which manufactures vehicles powered by electricity has come up with a technology to convert any automobile to electric vehicles, reports TOI.

EVI claims that they can effectively reduce carbon emissions without impacting the performance and convenience of the traditional car. A world full of electric vehicles is considered as a paradise for the environmentalists.

EVI was founded by Priyank Dahanukar in 2007, who started developing kits to convert any vehicle into an electric vehicle. The founder and a friend started with a prototype for an electric vehicle from which they developed the converter technology. The kit can be fitted to convert existing combustion engine vehicles into electric vehicles. Priyank, says that all this became possible following the development of the Indian government's hybrid and electric vehicle policy.

1: Interesting story. Good that a new initiative in India is able to convert any vehicle into an EV. One wonders, though, about the efficiency and distance that one can run on one charge. EVs usually are designed to be lighter and/or recover energy while braking. Moreover, one worries over statements like, "A world full of electric vehicles is considered as a paradise for the environmentalists." which are misleading and false. While it is true that electric vehicles do not directly emit harmful gases, they still require lots of electric power, and generating that is bound to cause considerable environmental problems. It is better to avoid such statements. At least, an environment scientist or an activist could have been consulted.
