This project demonstrate that everybody can build their own Electric
Vehicle with a limited budget and limited technical knowledge.

Often the first thought may be to buy a new electric car, but
actually we need to stop for a minute and think. Will we be doing any
good in spending lots of money in a new car? Wouldn't that be just
contributing even more to the climate crisis? Why can't we adapt our
own or an existing car to run electric?
