Over ten years ago in a galaxy far far away!!!


Embarrassingly naff and I had never even heard of an Insight back then!

Might cheer you up for Christmas.

So THAT is the solar van from your URL...

Also, nice to meet you. Usually your video style is more "these are my hands."

Truly an Inspiration, the video, was it shot for a regional TV programme?

It was shot for a German TV show, the crew came over for a couple of days and we pottered about in the nearby villages. Quite good fun.

That was just before I converted it to Lithium and AC drive, so about autumn 2003.
I was one of the first in the UK with a bunch of others who bought some early Thundersky cells.

I spent 5000 iirc on 30 x 200A 4.2V LiMn cells. An early adopter.

They lasted over 5 years and approx 30,000 miles before I left the bloody car turned on one day for a week, and over discharged 60% of them, they did not recover

Thanks for sharing. Wished more American communities were like that so we could use something like that, a GEM, golf cart, etc to get around.

Nicely done. One can really see the professional touch in the video. And now, ten years later we begin to get some genuine electric cars
