This new, updated edition of Build Your Own Electric Vehicle contains everything that made the first edition so popular while adding all the technological advances and new parts that are readily available on the market today.

Build Your Own Electric Vehicle gets on the expressway to a green, ecologically sound, cost-effective way that even can look cool, too!

This comprehensive how-to goes through the process of transforming an internal combustion engine vehicle to an electric one or even building an EV from scratch for as much or even cheaper than purchasing a traditional car. The book describes each component in detail—motor, battery, controller, charger, and chassis—and provides step-by-step instructions on how to put them all together.
