What if the cheapest new car in America was electric and 100% zombie apocalypse ready?
We are two brothers, Michael and Kenny, who want to build street-legal electric vehicles that are affordable and apocalypse ready. While traditional car companies don't care that your current vehicle is nothing more than an out-of-gas zombie trap in a post-apocalypse wasteland, we have come up with a solution. Whether caused by the rapture, nuclear war, or (most likely) zombies, ApocalypsEV-1 is the affordable solar/battery powered transportation that allows savvy survivors to traverse the sun-baked badlands the fun way. Whether searching for pockets of civilization, water, or family, the ApocalypsEV limits the search for one valuable commodity, fuel.
At ApocalypsEV, we are humans first and promise to take firm stand against selling any of our vehicles to the undead, unlike some major car companies. While waiting for judgement day, our ApocalypsEV-1 retains practical, civilized applications. First and foremost it functions as an electric, All Terrain Vehicle (ATV) while doubling as a street-legal Electric Vehicle (EV) for short commutes and errands.
-Side by side ATV with seating for two (similar in design to a Yamaha Rhino)
-Platform that can be 2 or 4 wheel drive
By lessening dependence on oil, it is hoped the ApocalypsEV-1 can help avert several apocalyptic scenarios, but if it happens despite our best efforts, we have you covered. ApocalypsEV-1 tests the feasibility of affordable EVs that are capable off-roaders and qualify as federal Neighborhood Electric Vehicle for trips to the gun or grocery store.
What We Need & What You Get
Chassis, suspension, tires: $2000-5000 (We would like to build the chassis from scratch, but we may end up repurposing an existing ATV chassis. It will need headlights, turn signals, seats, seat belts and will cost more to make the prototype than it will in production.
Solar Panels and charger: $150-300
