Default Re: I wish I could build one of these

Its gonna get interesting folks. My two oldest boys are working for a company that is building an electric car, it should be out soon. I drove the car the other day and it is like a normal gas car but no gas. Will go at least 150 mi on a charge and that is about 7 dollars. Goes 100 mph and will fit 5 people. The only thing that is strange is that the accelerator is a stopping device also. This is why. The car has regenerative braking so as you take your foot out of the throttle it starts to charge the battery, that is resistance Hence the stopping affect. At the last portion of the stop you use the brakes, or for a panic stop. Have fun, Dave
