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.
