Converting a classic car to full battery-electric drive is either the best idea or the worst. There's an argument to be made that without the original powertrain, a classic is no longer the car it was, but merely one that looks like it. On the other hand, installing an electric drivetrain could help keep some classics on the road and out of the museum, or worse, the scrapyard. A good off-the-shelf electric drive system will almost always be a significant pep upgrade for an old daily driver, even if the original engine is a high-output V-8, thanks the instant-on torque. An electric classic won't smoke or leak oil, and if it's charged up, it should start up every time, at least during warmer cruising weather—and what a reduction in pollutants and hydrocarbons, especially if the removed engine was built to run on premium leaded gas. But an electric conversion is, by definition, not original.
MG Engine Conversions. This site is meant to be purely a photographic reference to engine conversions in MGs. Photographs have been supplied by many people who have all taken a different approach to the task. There are no hard and fast rules as to how any conversion should be done but I hope that the pictures on this site will give you an idea of what can be done and how to do it. All sections have a page of thumbnail links to the full sized pictures for quick reference.
