I agree with fb_bf completely, if you want to build a low cost EV then find someone's project that they gave up on, a friend of mine is building an electric Nissan 300ZX that he bought for $1,000, it already had the motor adapter, battery boxes and the engine was already pulled, figured he got around $5,000 worth of car and parts for his $1,000 investment, then another $1,000 bought him a brand new motor, speed controller and some contactors from someone else's project that they gave up on because the motor was to long for the car they had in mind, so he got another $4,000 worth of brand new, high end parts leaving him leaps and bounds ahead of where he would have been if he had started from scratch.
