Ever since at least the 1950's, car culture has included modifying vehicles for added performance and style. With the dawn of the fully electric car, there are some contingents that are all ready considering how best to eke more from the first generation of electric vehicles, like the original Th!nk NEV. Considering that the speed of a Neighborhood Electric Vehicle is strictly controlled, there's not a whole lot that can be done (legally) to increase their performance, but style is another matter entirely. A California company by the name of Electric Car Warehouse has taken a Th!nk NEV from a few years back and added new wheels and tires along with some other stylish duds. Take a look at the gallery below for the end result.

For reference, a NEV is a vehicle that is 4-wheeled, has a top attainable speed in 1 mile of more than 20 mph and not more than 25 mph on a paved level surface, and has a Gross Vehicle Weight Rating of less than 2,500 pounds. Thanks for the tip, Jerry!
