An Easy EV Conversion Kit For People
Open Source Civic EV Kit
APRIL 7, 2008
While people can purchase neighborhood electric vehicles today for about $10K, they only have a top speed of 35 miles an hour or so, essentially glorified golf-carts. In short, I came up with four options for a practical, economical EV conversion: Ford Escort 5th Gen Honda Civic ('92-'95) Geo Metro Saturn SL2 After talking with several people, I got the impression that the Honda Civic beat the other three vehicles hands-down in the selection.
