- A secondary education school in Madrid converts a petrol powered SEAT 600 to electric
- Sourcing parts and joining the gearbox to the engine were the main challenges of the project
- More than 150 hours of work were required to reconstruct the vehicle
150 hours of work, 10 new parts and 12 students. This is what the San Patricio school in Madrid needed for the electric conversion of a SEAT 600.
12 students, one challenge: With the goal of motivating the 12 students in his Industrial Technology class, San Patricio secondary school teacher Manuel Amor gave them a challenge: convert a historic car to electric. For the challenge they needed a car that was small and light-weight. “The 600 was perfect because as it weighs little, it needs less battery power and a smaller engine”, the teacher explained.
