But what if you could just convert your petrol/diesel powered car into an electric car?
Transition-One founder says:
“I’m selling to people who can’t afford a brand new 20,000-euro electric car,”
“We’re turning the best-selling models across Europe into electric cars”
The first prototype, a 2009 Renault Twingo that has an electric driving range of 180 kilometers, is fitted with electric motors and three packs of batteries on the front of the car and two on the site where the gas tank normally sits.
And complete conversion from a traditional fuel powered car to an electric vehicle takes less than a day. The original gearshift and gearbox are left untouched while the electrical socket is installed where the gas cap would originally have been.
