1994 saturn with an electric engine

This old trashed car gets fitted with a zero emission electric engine.

Volunteers working at the Good News Garage in Burlington have transformed a beat-up 1994 Saturn into an electric vehicle, which now moves around town without polluting the environment. The car, purchased for $300, now uses batteries instead of the conventional fuel-guzzling engine and radiator.

The transformation costs a total of about $10,000, but the car gets a decent 65mph for a 35-mile range. The batteries can be recharged in six hours, which makes the car suitable for a routine commute to the office. The developers say the car can be recharges from a wall socket or a fancier three-phase charging station.
