A one-off prototype electric car developed
through a partnership between Renault and
General Motors and Hughes Power Control
Systems (a GM subsidiary) to be marketed by
Renault outside the U.S. So they contracted
with the leading producer of converted
electric vehicles within the U.S. at the time
which was a company called U.S.
Electricar/Solar Electric Engineering Inc. in
The partnership apparently used U.S.
Electricar to assemble this and one other
prototype. The company advertised that it had
more than 200 converted electric vehicles in
Geo Prizms and Chevrolet S-10 pickup trucks.
