Converting Gas Guzzlers to Fuel Sippers: Plug-in Aftermarket Conversions

Time: March 26, Friday 15:30 - 17:00

Even the rosiest forecasts have plug-in hybrids and electric cars entering the market very slowly. By 2020, plug-in cars are predicted to only make up five to ten percent of the new car market and only one percent of the global car park – which is not fast enough to meet the current global carbon reduction targets for the transportation sector. Some industry leaders believe the answer is converting existing vehicles to run on electricity. This session will explore the technology and market challenges of converting gas-powered cars to run on electricity.
