From time to time, we like to post things that we think may be of interest to our readers. This is one of those examples: an E21 converted to electric drive. This car was posted for sale on craigs list... and this is really all we know about it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vtPk5IUbdH0
Great for short commutes! Needs no gasoline. Charges on household electricity for about $1.50 per use. Saves on maintenance-no oil changes. No repairs on radiator, water pump, timing belt/chain, etc. A simple system, batteries, a motor, and control electronics, very reliable - safe and easy for anyone, professional or homeowner to service.
