See how you can convert a Beetle to run on electric power.

Stinking Gas report;
10/14/16, San Jose, CA $2.45. My GMC Sierra pick-up has a 34 gallon tank, total cost to fill the tank is $88. Electric car distance for $88 of electricity is 4,410 miles.

Drive from San Francisco to Chicago, IL, and back for LESS than the cost of ONE tank of gas.

When the batteries run low, FREE charging stations can be found at many businesses.

This is a powerful custom electric vehicle. The owned must have a good working knowledge of electrical and mechanical systems.
