Old Volkswagen Samba Van Converted To EV By DIY Guy (Video)

If you have ever considered taking your car and converting it into an electric vehicle (EV), then you’ll probably want to take look at the video below. It’s really quite interesting, showing the fruits of a self-taught DIY (do it yourself) attempt to convert an early Volkswagen Samba Van into an EV.


(A thank you to “gene” on the Tesla Motors Club forum for posting about this and bringing this to my attention.)
