EV4U transformed this 1974 Beetle in an electric vehicle nammed (Battery Operated Beetle) and presents a video that shows the whole transfromation process and the issues it raises, what performances, where to place the batteries, the weight , how to handle cooling and safety...

BOB receives 144-volt of batteries, a Impulse 9 engine that can deliver up to 40 hp and100Nm depending on the settings, new suspension, four disc brakes, special containers made of polypropylene for the batteries (that provide up to 80km range).
