Nation-E’s battery powered vehicle is more than just a hunk of clean tech — it’s a disaster relief vehicle, meant to trudge into distressed areas that have lost power to provide energy for hospitals and emergency centers.

    Omg I am so happy I found this… I was trying to go to sleep when I couldn’t stop thinking of how to make a hummer (H1) into an electric vehicle? I have just spent the last few hours of my life researching the different types of HMMWV’s out there and going through their specs trying to figure which one would best fit the idea. And now that I have found your website I can rest easy knowing that the idea is already out there and I don’t have to save the world alone! :)

    1) i think you meant “fording” rivers.
    2) “kilowatt” is a measure of power, whereas battery capacity is a measure of energy. I think you meant kilowatt-hours.
