16 Year-Old Builds Electric Pickup Truck

The modified pickupAndrew Angelloti, a 16 year old, converted his very own 1988 Mazda pickup to run on electricity last year, using $6,000 he had saved up from his part time job as a life guard. He built his truck using 20 flooded lead acid batteries to create 120 volts, which he couples to a 60 HP 9” electric motor. It is capable of reaching a top speed of 55mph (89 km/h) and can get up to 40 miles (64 km) on a charge which is more than enough to get him to work and back.
