i'm sure someone out there has, but i've never seen it here or anywhere else online

it's a perfect platform to make electric in my opinion, the only issue is the weight distribution being a little funky

DODGE EPIC

Over at ALLPAR.com, the Dodge Epic was still going up till 2016 on it's original batteries that inventor Standford Ovshinsky engineered.

Standford invented;
  • NIMH battery
  • Flat screen monitors, tv, smart phone display
  • flexible solar panels
  • re-writable CD/DVD media
  • hydrogen fuel cells
over 400 US patents. He rivaled Thomas Edison and Einstein and is known as the greatest inventor of our generation of the 1960s thru 1990s.


We would never of had small cell phones, nor huge flat screen TVs, nor computer laptops in our generation if he wasn't so kind to license it all to create the 80s technology revolution.

Before Li batteries took the scene, EVs were NIMH types over AGM or golf cart battery technology.
