1977 Volkswagen Scirocco EV
Arizona State University conversion
SOLD! ($3,500 on 4/15/03)

This EV was originally built by Arizona State University students in the 1990s. Details are as follows:

  • 120 V (20 Trojan T-125 batteries)
  • GE-15 400 amp controller
  • 30 amp DC-DC converter
  • 220 V and 110 V chargers

    With a fresh battery pack I get about 50 miles on a charge and the top speed is about 80mph (it takes a while to reach that). With the current battery pack (which is a little over 3 yrs old), I get about 30 miles on a charge. I reach speeds of 60-65 mph daily during my commute.
