Electric Ghia

Really cool electric Ghia for sale on The Samba!  Even so, it would take many years (around 8) for me to recoup the cost in gas savings at current prices and commute distance and I would definitely miss the roaring flat four drowning out the radio.  I wonder how much the the drivetrain was modified for this setup.  Interesting to note the upgrade to disc brakes all around.
