www.evcup.com As some of you may remember, EV4U hosted a charge and lunch stop for the ZERO Race which passed through Northern California last November. EV4U is focused on converting classic commuter vehicles, but racing does wonders to advance the acceptance and technology of electric vehicles. We'll see you at the finish line.

The crown jewel of the classic VWs is the Karmann Ghia.
Marketed from 1955 to 1974, it combined the chassis and mechanicals of the Beetle, styling by Luigi Segre of the Italian carrozzeria Ghia, and hand-built bodywork by German coach-builder Karmann.
Over 445,000 Karmann Ghias were produced in Germany over the car's production life.
37 years after the end of production, the Karmann Ghia still has a loyal following.
We found this 1974 Karmann Ghia Coupe in Brookings, Oregon, originally from Las Vegas, Nevada, the car is rust free and in excellent shape. EV4U will convert it to electric power and restore it to show quality. You can follow the project on our website. When completed, the Ghia will be offered for sale.

EV4U is looking for events to attend, that will help us promote electric vehicles. We bring B.O.B. (Battery Operated Bug) our award winning marketing vehicle, that demonstrates how simple an electric car really is. Using B.O.B. as the attention getter, we answer folks questions and share with them the advantages of electric transportation. So, if you know of an event taking place in Washington, Oregon, Nevada, Arizona, or California, please drop us a line and let us know about it.
Hello and welcome to the EV4U Custom Conversions Blog. We receive a lot of email and phone calls regarding electric vehicle conversions. There are a lot of similar questions being asked, and perhaps a blog format will help get information out, without repeating ourselves so frequently. It will also give others a chance to weigh in with their thoughts. If the blog format is not for you, we still welcome the phone calls and emails.
