Miami EV Project converts VW Golf to electric drive
Not counting the fancy $5,000 paint job (by the artist LEBO), this conversion cost the duo just over $13,000. They estimate it'll cost them $1.50 to charge the batteries and then go about 50 miles per charge. Alva and Helbling explain their case here, and Helbling's big question is this: "If we can do it, why can't everybody? Do we really need to wait for car companies to sell us a new electric car?" To answer that, keep an eye out for Alva and Helbling to possibly work on a reality show or documentary series called "Green Your Ride." Thanks to Donato H. for the tip!
