My New Plug-In Electric Chevy S10 is a Success!
You can’t even tell that the Chevy is electric now.
Marquette, MI – December 7th, 2015 – I’ve been driving my little, fully converted, plug-in electric Chevy S10 around Marquette for almost 3 months now. So, with a little first-hand experience under my belt, I talked with Todd Paz on The 8th Day about how I ended up with an electric car. We even called in a special guest (spoiler alert – it’s my dad) to talk about the process of converting a car like this.
When I’m done driving, I just plug in my car and it start charging up
Driving the car feels pretty normal for me. In fact, the hardest part about it was learning to drive with a manual transmission. The best part? My gas station is my garage. When I’m done driving around for the day, I pull in to the garage and plug in. The next morning, I have a full charge and am ready to go!
This was the first electric vehicle I had ever seen up close. So, I was shocked by a few things – especially when I looked under the hood. Now, I’m not a mechanic, or particularly good with cars, but even I can’t miss the huge whole where the engine used to be. I could probably fit inside!
