Well, this is my first EV build after many years of working on and building ICE cars and race cars. It started as a father/daughter project to build a unique car for her. My minimum goals are to prove that I can do it and that the car be capable of transporting her to and from school daily, which is about a mile each way. Once it's on the road, I plan to work on mileage, no desire for performance as I get that from ICE vehicles. My daily commute is about 22 miles round trip, and I don't expect it to make that in it's first form. Ideally, the plan would be to upgrade from lead to a better power source in a few years as batteries mature and maybe then make it my daily driver.
