Dodge Charger Tesla Conversion

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

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