A 1992 S-10 Chevy truck with on-board generator and super long-range ride. Greened with a twist from Gal Fridman and Aquarius! Thought proving videos to say the least!

Top Speed: Had it to 55 mph so far. Gets there easily. Acceleration Much improved with lithium battery upgrade.Range55 Miles (88 Kilometers)
55 miles with batteries discharged 90%. I blame the low range on the known capacity decrease of the 1st Gen Leaf modules.
Seating Capacity 2 adults. Conversion Time Bought it as a turn key EV conversion. I did
the lithium battery upgrade.
