Describe your website.

I converted a Toyota MR2 sports car, and this site documents much of the journey. It is named ZEV240, since it is a Zero Emissions Vehicle, and 240 is Australian voltage. As well as the ZEV240 Blog, there is a second on talking about broader issues cunningly called Issues Blog.
Even though the car itself is finished, both blogs are still relevant; e.g. battery packs can fail, EVs still need insurance (and we have some good solutions there) and discussions on sustainable power, V2G, EVs for load levelling, coal-fired power stations etc etc etc are still relevant. Find out about my EHC and join the discussion.

Who is the target audience for your website?

This site is relevant for people thinking of making their own EV and wishing to learn about why there are so many bespoke EVs. Talk about the issues, problems and advantages using the range of feedback available thru the Sandvox tools. Even though manufactured EVs and hybrids are on the rise, there will always be a place for handmade EVs.

Why did you use this Sandvox design?

I was after a simple design with lots of white, and the design I chose isn't bad. I can adapt it further if I need, but the important part is I can keep adapting and even try other designs any time I want, and still easily convert back to the original any time.
