This is a 1996 Geo Metro that has been converted to
all electric. Reduce power bills by switching to EV rate! Possible alternative uses; mobile power source for greenhouses, construction sites or home backup!
Although this conversion uses a deep-cycle, lead-acid
battery pack, it provides a great platform for someone
to upgrade the battery pack to lithium. With a lithium upgrade this car will get great mileage range!
If you're a college or high school student who's interested
in pursuing academic studies in EV or green technology, or
if you're a working professional who's thinking about making
a job transition to the EV automobile industry or other
greentech industries, this is a great opportunity for you
to demonstrate your passion and expertise to your future
employer or college of your choice.
In fact, I know someone who did just that. This person had
no prior experience in the automobile industry, but he decided
it would be a fun and educational experience to get his hands
involved in an electric car conversion project. After completing
the project, he managed to land his dream job at Tesla.
Here are the details:

I chose to use Walmart batteries, because Walmart offers a
very generous 24-month warranty. If a battery goes bad before
the end of the warranty period, Walmart will give you a FREE
replacement. You can't beat that kind of deal.
