Hi, tackling my first EV project.
Im building a reverse trike using altered Tri Magnum plans.
Real simple frame using a 69 VW front end.
Im using a real small powerplant but I'm gonna keep the weight down as much as I can...the body would be a composite of urethane foam. plywood and fiberglass, with a metal frame.
Planning on using a Manta 2 motor and controller, since Ive seen it used for electric motorcycles. Gonna use 4-6 Lithium Iron motorcycle batteries. Id like to use lightweight solar panels to help with battery life.
I attached my design...built a crude cardboard model so I can determine the panels and measurements I need to make.
My building skills are fine, but Im gonna be asking a load of questions as I go along. Influences are Blade Runner, Total Recall and Elon's Cybertruck. Thank you all.

Very nice design and very nice cardboard mockup.
A mix of an old lambo with a pos-apocalyptic vehicle.
Just a question, how do you get in?

Reminds me of this one, actually it was made using similar technics.

Thank you! Yeah That pic you posted was also a plans - built car called the Vortex...but for some reason they're no longer available...
Anyway I'm gonna use lambo doors on mine. Straight up. Just like the Blade Runner car.
