Driving the ZelectricBug Electric VW Beetle at Highway Speeds
It's been said that Electric Car manufacturers often overstate their vehicle range on a full charge. For the ZelectricBug, we estimate a range from 90-110 miles, depending on how you drive it. To make sure the ZelectricBug goes the distance at higher speeds, we've documented a full range road trip on our San Diego CA highways. Unlike gas-engined cars, at slower just-driving-around-town speeds, the ZelectricBug actually gets 15-20% MORE miles!

Jon McDougal's Electric Beetle
Jon retrofitted this 1974 beetle into an all electric vehicle, and then refurbished it so it looks really sharp. The parts for the conversion were about $10,000 and once all the parts are available, the conversion could be done in about three days. This vehicle qualified for the $6,000 tax credit.
