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.

Build Your Own Electric Vehicle gets on the expressway to a green, ecologically sound, cost-effective way that even can look cool, too!

This comprehensive how-to goes through the process of transforming an internal combustion engine vehicle to electric or even building an EV from scratch for as much or even cheaper than purchasing a traditional car. The book describes each component in detail---motor, battery, controller, charger, and chassis---and provides step-by-step instructions on how to put them all together.

Build Your Own Electric Vehicle, Second Edition, covers:

  • EV vs. Combustible Engine Overview
  • Environmental and Energy Savings
  • EV Evolution since the First Electric Car
  • Current Purchase and Conversion Costs
  • Chassis and Design
  • Today's Best Motors
  • Battery Discharging/Charging Styles
  • Electrical Systems
  • Licensing and Insurance Issues
  • Driving
  • Maintenance
  • Related Clubs and Associations
  • Additional Resources

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 298-301) and index.

Bought the book in '95 with an eye to its eventual relevancy. That time has really come to be now. Wondering if my ed. may be a bit outdated - advances in the intervening years not known then? Wondering if there is a newer copyright then my '94 ed.? Not being an engineer but a do-it-yourselfer, I think it is quite a complete expose' of the subject.*****
