It travels at around 25km/h, which clearly keeps it well away from Tesla territory (the S model probably reverses at twice that speed), but then again, it’s clearly going to be better than a bicycle in the rain. And you can carry a child in the back seat, plus some shopping. Try doing that on…

Custom Electric Car- Now ChargeCar: Open Source Electric Vehicles

ChargeCar is a community-centered project of the Robotics Institute’s CREATE Lab. Researchers are working with local mechanics to develop methods and components necessary for efficiently converting electric cars into vehicles that can be used for commuting. Initial efforts have focused on 2001-2005 model year Honda Civics… …ChargeCar also continues to study power management as a way of making electric vehicles more efficient. Unlike the battery-only approach currently being used in the car conversion, this smart power management scheme would combine batteries with an electric storage device called a supercapacitor. By…
