But where should you start? You can shell out some serious dough at a dealership if you happen to know of one nearby and get a brand new electric car. Believe it or not, you can actually find quite a few electric cars for sale on eBay, and there may be some in your area if you look on Craigslist. You may not think buying a car would be very safe on eBay, especially if it has to be shipped to you, but they've really stepped up their game recently in how they deal with car sales, and there are quite a few dealerships that are selling cars on eBay and providing perfectly safe shipping methods. There are even a couple websites out there dedicated to those interested in buying and selling electric cars.
You can check out eBay's electric car listings here: http://green.ebay.com/green-driving/electric-cars-trucks
And also check out the EV Tradin' post website here: http://www.evtradinpost.com/ they have a lot of homemade projects and many relatively cheap electric cars for sale.
I really like how many different vehicles people have been using to do some of the homemade electric car conversions on, like the Volkswagen Karmann Ghia and some of the Porsches I have seen on EV Tradin' post. One of the problems a lot of people have with buying an electric car is that as soon as you hear the words 'electric car', many car enthusiasts cringe at the words because it just doesn't sound like it would be a cool car. Sure you would be doing good for the economy, but a lot of people's choices when it comes to which car to buy often comes down to the styling and looks of the car.
|Not all electric cars have to look like these!|
Not only do many people prefer the styling options of a homemade electric car, but the electric car conversion kits and labor to get it installed often cost thousands, even sometimes tens of thousands of dollars cheaper than to go out to a new car dealership and buy a manufactured electric car by Nissan, Chevrolet, Toyota, etc. While you can buy some brand new electric cars for around the $30,000 price tag, many, more sportier ones by companies like Tesla and Fisker cost a hefty $100,000!
While we can't wait on the technology for longer driving ranges to become available to the public at a decent enough price to have affordable, long-range cars, I can show you that we do have the technology to produce a homemade electric car that can go fast!
