Jeffrey Automotive is introducing plans for a do-it-yourself (DIY) electric car. The vehicle is a two-seater, powered by a 72volt DC motor with an anticipated top speed of 60 mph and a range of 50/60 miles on one charge from six 12v deep cycle lead/acid batteries. The car can be built for $5,000 or less.
The company provides the plans only, the builder supplies everything else. Purchase of the manual includes the license to build one car.
George Jeffrey was well known in the 70s as a designer and builder of sports and racing cars in Britain. The best known was the J5, a two-seater, open-top sports car.
