'Go Green-Go Electric!Faster, Cheaper, More Reliable While Saving Energy and the Environment

This new, updated edition of Build Your Own Electric Vehicle contains everything that made the first edition so popular while adding all the technological advances and new parts that are readily available on the market today.

Synopsis:

Save money on gas and turn your car into an electric and efficient machine

What really happened to the electric car? This completely revised and updated edition of the "bible of electric car books" gives you the component-by-component coverage you need to convert your gas-guzzler to a clean-running electric powered vehicle. The book begins with a history of electric vehicles and the latest international advances in EV technology, and goes onto describe every component from motor to chassis — how to put them all together to create a working vehicle.
