The UBC Electric Vehicle Project

The UBC Electric Vehicle project ran from the fall of 1974 through to 1979. The idea evolved from an electric motorcycle I built in the summer of 1973. I was the project coordinator from the inception to 1977, when I graduated. Frank Peabody took over and continued the project from there.

These are a few articles about that student project.
