One of our loyal NYC spotters caught this thoroughly interesting, homemade EV navigating the Upper East Side yesterday afternoon. Where do I start on this thing? How about the reference to 1972 on the vanity plate and the Caterham 7-esq fenders and wheels reminiscent of the same era. Could it be…a custom EV built atop a vintage British sports car platform? The canvas exterior skin, complete with solar panels, indicates that a more production-ready body is perhaps in the works and that the vehicle’s maker is indeed undergoing field testing in the pothole-laden Island of Manhattan. Some people have hobbies, other build EV sports cars.
Amazing sighting. Thanks Charles.
