$300 clunker gets an electric engine for zero emissions

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.
