    Liberator of oil company greed. "SUNCAR" is a 1988 Ford Festiva converted into an all electric vehicle. She is powered by a 30 hp DC electric motor mounted to the original 5-speed trans axle so you still go through the gears. She gets her power from 8 six volt Trojan golf cart batteries, making her a 48 volt car. She has supplemental charging by way of 4 roof mounted solar panels generating 60 watts total. We eliminated the weak link in most EV's which is the controller or speed control unit as these tend to burn out and at $500 each, can get expensive. As a result, this car has seen trouble free service for over 5 years and has proven to be a great little work horse.
