$2009 AWD Hybrid Fiero - First test drive!

First test drive with the $2009 AWD Fiero. The video shows the car in electric only mode, it's so quiet that you can't even hear the motor over the road noise from the nearby street! This was the first time the new suspension has been driven on as well.

Full Electric Car Home Conversion - 1988 Pontiac Fiero Part 1
The process of converting my Pontiac Fiero to 144 volt electric car. Full video documentation of the process along with a few test drives. It runs on 12, 12 volt Trojan deep cycle lead acid batteries. Powered by a 9.1 in. dia. Advanced DC motor with a 500 amp Curtis controller. Part 2 and 3 will be coming soon. GO ELECTRIC!





First spinnup
More details at http://www.electric-lemon.com First test of EV motor mounted to transmission. Powered from a 12V battery using a contactor to turn it on and off. The tranny has 80.000 miles on it so it's kind of noisy but the metal cart it's on makes it sound a lot worse than it is.
