Dodge Charger Tesla Conversion

Drive Electric Earth Day Day (DEED) is a national campaign to share information about electric vehicles throughout April. On Sunday, April 10, it was held in Quiet Waters Park in Deerfield Beach, Florida. I headed over there in my new Polestar 2 to meet other EV owners and see what exciting cars and vendors were there.

This Dodge Charger was converted to EV drive using Tesla motors and batteries.
