Battronic delivery van

Post by moemoke »

A mate was telling me this morning about a Battronic Van which may be for sale in country Vic. I did a bit of googling while trying to look after my 2 hypo sons but I couldn't find much info about the Battronic Van. I so wanted to have a look but when we arrived at the address no one was about.
Has anyone ever heard of them? It is about a mid 70's elec van used by the US postal service.

While I'm on the subject of odd EV's last weekend I went to the Maffra car museum and there was a guy with a 1916 Detroit Elec car there. it was a great looking machine, the owner has recently upgraded to Thundersky's which give him a range of 100-150 miles but the old car only does about 40mph.
