Re: DIY PHEV Prius c?
Ive been interested in hybrids for a while now as well as building 2 super high mpg trikes from scratch, they just take so damn long to complete :-(
I live about 40 miles from "civilization" in either direction so any practical ev is going to need a 100 mile range to work for me, also, I put a LOT of miles on my cars.
The Prius c is only 6 weeks old and has almost 5k miles on it already for example...
I personally am interested in saving money mainly while still driving a new car, and also, the various parts will likely become a "mpg kit" for the prius c. I am an entrepreneur and it hasn't escaped me or my partner that the Prius c is currently selling like hotcakes, dealers cant keep them on lots and some (not mine) are commanding 8k premiums over list.
And this is for a car, take it from me, people are clearly not buying for its roominess or acceleration, so me thinks an "aero kit" and a "battery kit" might be a good part time venture :-)
