EV Literature?

I've been looking for some books on EVs, but the few I found seem old and therefore have old data. Any book recommendations on How-to's or general
EV knowledge.

My end goal is a series hybrid but wanna get down the EV part

Thanks!

You might want to contact BenNelson. He sells a DVD that shows how to convert a car to an EV.

I have a number of EV books, Convert It is ok, The New Electric Vehicles (from 1993) is a fun read but useless for doing a build, Build Your Own Hybrid Electric Vehicle is ok as well but leaves you important information.

If you do find any books that are more then a history of EV's and a bunch of vauge bits of info on people's ev's then let me know as well, but I've been looking at EV books for the last 15 years and haven't found may good ones.
