I talked to Joe Lado about his Pontiac Fiero that he's converted to run on electricity at a Washington event for electric cars this week. You can see the golf cart batteries and solar panels in the front and back of the car in a video below the fold. Joe talked about the many advantages of owning an electric car, especially the low cost of fuel and maintenance. I was really impressed however by the charger. For a conversion, the charger was incredibly well done. There was a timer, switches and a second connector that made charging at almost any voltage possible. You can check it out in the video above.
