This young Alaskan EcoGeek has just hit the electric vehicle market with something a little unorthodox. We're used to the sleek, shiny, and not-quite-ready EVs from major auto companies. And then there's the straight-up peculiar offerings from the little EV startups. But Bart Grabman has converted a POS 1971 Beetle to an all-electric vehicle.
The car charges some old, used lead acid batteries via a wall socket, and the batteries power an Advanced DC 8" 203-06-4001 Series Wound DC motor. For now, the vehicle gets him around town, but we don't imagine those batteries will last him much longer. In any case, a little Alaskan ingenuity might just be what the rest of this country needs.
