A friend of mine is working on converting a 1973 Bug to all electric. He started out with what was just a gutted shell and in about a half year in spare time, repainted it, and added an all electric motor.
As you can see from the photos, the outside looks great. Inside, well, not.
There's also a test run video of the car (recorded today) at the bottom.
