Our plan for greener, electric driving is simple.

  1. Create conversion plan for a gasoline car.
  2. Find buyers for the car.
  3. Organize a group purchase.
  4. Get the cars on the road.
  5. Share the conversion plans.
  6. Start over again with another model.

Why eCars?
Electric Car is ecological, energy efficient and economic, making it a solution for the climate change and oil addiction. And it leaves the ICE cars far behind.

While the electric car has many benefits, the car manufacturers and the oil industry have not been keen to provide it for us (for the reasons watch the movie Who Killed the Electric Car?)
