Probably the world's cheapest "car" to run, as its battery is free of cost. Not quite a Tesla electric sports car, but this 1984 electric pickup is running on the closest thing to "free energy" and also, its batteries were rescued from the landfill and rejuvenated. There are several battery breakthroughs in this "World's First Revived Battery Electric Pickup Truck." As the show's host says, help is needed to get this technology into the hands of more people, for the planet's sake, as this type of alternative energy is relatively clean.

The Globe and Mail newspaper said that there are only 12 licensed EV's in British Columbia. Down from over 40, about four years ago. The price of gas has quadrupled, but the number of licensed EV's has dropped by 80% in BC.
Doesn't that make you realize that there is SOMETHING WRONG with the "standard" EV out there?
If you want an EV that is daily-use reliable, you've got to change the "losing game", eh? Gotta' think out of the box.
The EV put together by Rob Matthies (me) and Gary Tang with the help of gifted kids and the Vancouver Gadgeteers costs only 3 CENTS per kilometer to operate, including the cost of battery replacement.
One VEVA member's EV, on the other hand, cost him $2/km to own. He's sold it since. And last I heard, it wasn't licensed by the new owner.
Many EV's are rusting away under the shade of a tree in someone's driveway. All of these can be REVIVED and put back in service. And, they can all use DISCARDED batteries, like the Revived Battery electric pickup truck -- the cheapest licensed four-wheel vehicle to operate in the world. It uses dead batteries that have been revived.
Yeah, there are doubters out there. None of them have an EV like ours. You don't need a PhD to see that this is the best option for under a $15,000 budget.
If you want to know how we did this, save up ninety nine bucks, and I'll tell you about battery revival.
