Hi everyone,
This is a presentation I did at the Mother Earth Fair Sept. 25th 2010.
In it, I cover the steps it took for me to build an electric car on a budget.
It was only a 45 minute presentation, so some things were only touched on that in themselves can be very deep topics.
Think of this as a good into or overview and that it IS possible to build your own electric car on a budget.

    I've been interested in EV for some time. The affordability and seeming followability of this instructable is inspiring.

    You probably already said this but what brand generator did you use.

    When I converted the car to a plug-in hybrid mode, I used a Generac brand generator.

    Put ball bearings in a car starter motor and that is cheap.
