EV vehicle/parts for sale

Ok, no interest so far and the rego has expired.

So still registrable for the next 3 months and price reduction to $9500.

Any feedback from out there - am I asking too much or have people stopped doing conversions?

EV vehicle/parts for sale

Hi everyone When the Curtis controller on my electric hilux blew, I was instructed to replace the vehicle with a safer and more practical body (think I might be in for a change in family makeup soon...)

So the car now weighs less than the original. Driving is much better too: I haven't done a range test yet, but I'm getting over 120km wthout disc...

Hi everyone Just transferred my electric hilux to NSW and the RTA tells me I need a new engineers certificate from a NSW certified engineer. It has been registered in the ACT and NT for 4 years now.
