As of late last fall, my electric Tercel has been disassembled.
The body has been parted out for another Tercel (gasoline) and the electric parts are now in my father’s garage. I hope to someday build another electric vehicle using them, maybe a little aluminum framed summer vehicle.
The project was a lot of fun and taught me a lot. For me, building the car was less about the car itself, and more about getting through a rough time in my life. I hope the fact that my car is no more does not discourage anyone from going at it themselves. Home built EV’s are a great bit of fun and are very worthwhile in the end. I had gotten to the point where I needed to replace the batteries but it did not make sense financially for me and my family to buy a new battery pack. As with everything in life, there is a priority list, and my hobby car did not make the cut this time around.
With that being said, if anyone is interested in the parts that I have (check out the kit components), make an offer and I’m sure I can make you a very good deal. Also, as I’ve been doing, I’ll try and answer any questions that come my way.
Thank you everyone who contributed and supported the ZeroGasoline project.
