Project Description

This project will restore a ‘vintage’ electric vehicle to operable condition to be used as a

commuter vehicle and a promoter of sustainability and alternative / renewable energy.

On September, 2008 I was delivering plants to a roofing company in suburban

Washington DC where I saw a derelict electric vehicle parked next to the customer’s building.

Upon inquiry, the vehicle was donated to me immediately.

The Vehicle

The EV is a circa 1979 or 1980 Electravan, originally produced by Jet Industries of

Austin TX. It is based on Subaru model 600 ‘microvan’ that was originally equipped with a 25

HP, two-cylinder, two-cycle engine. Jet installed a 20HP GE electric motor, controller, battery

charger, and 96V bank of golf-cart batteries.

The Original Specs are:

Battery Voltage: 96VDC with 12VDC auxiliary

Controller: GE EV-1 Controller

Motor: GE Model 20HP Series wound DC motor

Battery Charger: Lester

Range: About 40 miles

Recharge time: 5 to 10 hours

Top speed over 60 MPH
