Welcome to the Electric Car Weblog. In addition to links, news, and tips about electric cars and other forms of alternative transportation we are publishing an on-line diary of our current EV project. Started in August 2005 the chronicle follows the conversion of a gas powered Ford Probe into an Electric Car.

You will find articles organized by categories, along with recent comments, along the right hand column of the website. If you are just getting started with the idea of converting a gas car to electric be sure to check out Your First Electric Car .

Welcome and enjoy!

Renault 4CV to 4EV Conversion · 19 August 05

Renault 4CV

Terry Vessels is underway with a rather unique conversion, as you can see from the photo. It’s a 1959 Renault 4CV and looks to be quite the project.

I like his three step approach:

  • Get it working.
  • Get it working well.
  • Customize.

He’s also working on other projects in his spare(?) time.

Good luck Terry!
