Advice on Buying an Electric Car Conversion

by Evan

I'm looking at buying a converted EV (taking your advice:) and don't know much about 'em. How do I know how much HP is good? If the motor is good?

Hi, Evan!
Get yourself to a meeting of the local chapter of the Electric Auto Association - in your case, Seattle Electric Vehicle Association.

There's no way to tell from a description of an electric car whether it is a good deal or not, but at the meeting you will find kindhearted souls willing to answer all your questions and help you find an electric car you'll love!


P.S. You've read my article on EV motors already, haven't you?
Well, here's another one maybe you haven't seen yet! It's about the great AC vs. DC motor debate.
