Attached is a picture of the truck that I drive to work every day. It uses no gas, never needs an oil change and has no radiator or muffler. It produces no pollution and makes no noise. With few moving parts, maintenance is minimal. It costs $2.00 to drive 50 miles and has a top speed of 70 mph. This is my plug-in electric vehicle.
An electric vehicle is ideal for a work car and around-the-town errands. It charges in 6-8 hours from a battery charger located in my garage. This provides enough energy to get me to work and back with short trips at lunch. Not only is it fun to drive, it was easy to build. I spent three months building it in the evenings after work.

If you would like to know more about how you can own your own electric vehicle call me at (407) 805-0766.
