How To Future-Proof A Mazda MX-5 Miata



Apparently, someone else has had the same idea, because UK-based electric conversion company Zero EV just released a video this month documenting their progress with an electric NB Miata conversion. Zero EV carries a vast array of EV conversion components compatible with a range of vehicle makes and models, making them just the right outfit for this type of project.

This NB Miata probably isn’t going to light the world on fire with its parts list, but nor should it give up much of its original performance. It’s got a single drive motor – a Netgain Hyper9 with about 120 horsepower and 160 lb-ft of peak torque – which is supplied juice by ten 2.6-kWh battery modules from LG Chem, mounted up front and cooled by Zero EV’s own liquid cooling plates.
