It's about time, another post- Greenwood Car Show

It's been way too long since I last posted, so I'm going to make a resolution right now to post at least once a week until I get through the backlog of topics that have been building up in my inbox over the past couple of months.

Last month I went up to the Greenwood Car Show in Seattle and took some pictures of some of the great electric vehicles that have been built in the Northwest. Below are some of the more notable cars we saw:

Here is an all-electric RAV4 that is not a conversion, but was actually manufactured and sold by Toyota in California briefly in the early 2000's. These cars are tough to find, one just went for ~$80k on e-bay several weeks ago!



Here is a great truck conversion that includes a tiltable bed which gives access to the batteries, and of course a huge solar panel on top to power the truck on those many NW sunny days.


One last picture before I have to sign off: this is a Geo Metro conversion done by Dave Cloud in Woodinville for a SEVA member. This car, fully loaded with batteries and carrying an auxillary battery pack made it 101 miles on I-5 to win the first annual SEVA rally.
