Building an Electric Vehicle
(Black and White Edition)

Ken Watkins

If you have the desire to build your own electric vehicle, "Building An Electric Vehicle" with clear instructions and more than 130 pictures in its 180 pages is the book for you. This book provides a step-by-step approach to converting an internal combustion engine automobile into an electric vehicle. You are taken through the design and construction of two electric vehicles, showing you pictures of every step. The illustrated principles will help you produce the most efficient vehicle possible. This book follows the design and construction of two electric vehicles from the funding stage to the final driving stage. Unlike most "How-To-Books" this book discusses what not to do, in addition to what to do. You can see how some decisions led to some not so desirable results. Included in this manual is useful information on how to acquire the needed funding to do the conversion as well as a complete cost breakdown for each vehicle. A cost spreadsheet was used for each vehicle construction to record every cost. A minimal cost estimate to produce your electric vehicle is also shown. Vehicle schematics are included, showing how to integrate the drive electronics to the original vehicle wiring. The large pictures in "Building An Electric Vehicle" gives you all the information you need to build your own clean-energy, electric vehicle. These full size pictures make the book cost more, but add so much more to the level of information included.
