Crowdfunding push for EZ-EV source electric kit car

Builder of the electric trike (shown) Krysztopik is preparing to release the car as open source plans, kits and complete vehicles

engineer Gary Krysztopik has driving his self-built, open-framed, electric hotrod on the roads and of San Antonio (TX) for over years now, but folks can’t help staring as he past. While also on gas-to-electric conversions (including a VW Bug and a Carrera), he’s been refining and tweaking the design for his box on wheels and is now preparing to release the car as open source plans, kits and complete vehicles.

The original Z Wheelz 2-seat (ZW2C) has a bottom frame little more than a battery box containing 24 deep lead-acid batteries, and features a 200-250 AC induction electric driving a belt to the rear and a built-in computer with GPS that displays system information. There’s a roll with a Honda Fit windshield, a for park/reverse/drive/economy mode, a parking and a composite rear fender. It has a range of 100 miles (160 km) and is of speeds of over 60 mph (96 km/h).

You can see driving it around in the following

Krysztopik’s new design retains the battery box but the frame of the two-seater is to be made from advanced composites (fiber glass) of steel. The 32 kWh battery pack consist of 96 lithium batteries and the will have power disc brakes and modern There won’t be any of the modern that most of us take for but the design could be modified to a variety of comfort options.

Fully assembled vehicles be made available, but the main of the EZ-EV project is to make the pound (680 kg) street-legal, vehicle available as a kit that can be by one person in a garage with tools in just one week. source plans and a parts will also be released for who want to build an EZ-EV scratch.

The idea is to maximize off the shelf so someone can just buy a frame a parts list and order else to bolt on, Krysztopik Gizmag. The Mustang II front end are common and come complete brakes, steering and suspension. The just bolt down to the box cover. All of the motors are cylinders a shaft coming out, and all are boxes that are bolted to the floor.

This stuff is so and modular, which is what this work so well.

According to Krysztopik, the finished can then be registered as a motorcycle in states (but advises local laws before in). He expects the vehicle to manage over 80 mph (128 with a range of up to 150 miles km) per charge (depending on the battery/motor chosen by the buyer).

Enclosed are also in the works for those who rather be surrounded by an outer similar to the body mold for the Car by Jerry Dycus. The long-term aim is to pop-on body panels can be 3D-printed.

To help turn his electric into a reality, Krysztopik has hit the pages of the Indiegogo crowd-funding For US$1,000 backers can receive a EZ-EV model, $7,500 secure a full-size frame and will get you a rolling chassis Lower reward levels are for those who want to support the

I can get this vehicle on the road in as as six months, and I want to make kits like the Lego kits for education programs, he They can build and race the models and then get a ride in the size version. I’m excited about how this can as an educational program that is so tied to growing clean businesses.

Krysztopik has created the following campaign video to give a of what’s on offer:
