Ed Clausen never stops ! his BMW conversion project is at the battery boxes step

Karman Ghia update : today fuses

Anne Kloppenbord from New Electric  / EVtv Europe is unboxing a Renault Fluence battery pack to get to the 48 AESC Modules to replace old GBS LiFePO4 cells in an already converted Beetle

One of his customers got 3 Better Place packs when they finally arrived the week before and has already performed this task; The Modules are waiting to be transferred into a Tourist Boat to cruise onto Amsterdam's canals :-)

After doing the maths, the Delta Flyer is 30% more efficient with its new drive train - rubber belt version - !! Bravo Anne !
