So who thinks electric cars are slow?
Running a little late to a meeting, so I bumped it up a bit.  Suddenly it hit me, photo op!
That's not the top speed either, but when you're driving an orange Karmann Ghia you don't want to stick out too much.  Not bad for a Curtis 500 amp controller and an ImPulse 9 motor.  This is our Commuter Package, if you want to go fast we can arrange that too.

Some of our YouTube viewers asked for a video of the Karmann Ghia running on the Freeway.  So in this weeks episode of the EV Answer Man we take the Ghia on a short Freeway run from our shop to the Sundial Bridge (20 miles).  Unfortunately it was a cold and rainy day.  Would have been better if we had sunshine and blue sky.  The Ghia cruised at 70+ mph and shows off the Commuter Package offered by EV4U Custom Conversions.  By the way it started snowing 5 minutes after we made the video run.
