Additional FeaturesPower steering, Power brakes, A/C, AM/FM Cassette, tinted rear
slider window, bucket seats. The other neat feature is that it
is green instead of white like almost every other E-10 on the
road. (I know of only 4 others and two of those are being
parted out.)
This is an LS version of the S-10, very few of these were
converted by Solectria. It has about 15,500 miles on it. The
truck was originally an Arizona truck so it has absolutely no
rust. When I bought it, it had 12 dead Hawker batteries and
about half the Arizona desert in it. After a substantial
bath, it started looking like a truck again. The batteries
were a wash as well. New Dominators and a little re-wiring
got me into a really nice truck.
UPDATE: It's been almost a year and over 5,000 miles and
going strong. No serious problems, only a loose wire that
caused a dead truck. Traced the wire and no problems since.
What a TRUCK!
UPDATE: It's been 2 years now and over 10,000 miles. Still
running great. This is a daily driver.
UPDATE: I put this truck in service back in 2005. Its Jun
2013 and I'm using the same batteries and still get about 25
miles range. They are getting old but still work.
Update: Its December 2015, batteries are dead. Need a new
set. I'm finally going to part with this truck and sell it.
Any takers? See it for sale on the EV Tradin' Post!
