Concept A

I've been toying with the idea for years, but I've decided that I now want to try and make my own EV. With the help of you guys, my friends in Bentley's Green power project and a few friends at Castle Creations. These are the targets I'm setting

1.carry 4 people+30kg load
2.Range = 100 miles+
3.Cruise speed 65mph+
4. has to acheive 80% ofpoint2 including extented times @ point3 whilst carrying 2 people

At the moment I haven't decided on layout, or construction but it would have to be simple design - most like to go open source once the bugs are sorted. The project is going to be a long one but My main aim is the car to be simple, modular to aid retrofitting upgrades and most importantly use existing technology to act as recycling.

good things come to those who wait, sh*t turns up pretty much instantly
