I'd recommend a bike, either a bicycle or motorcycle, as a first EV project over a car. eBike is definitely cheaper but it will be so much fun it wont be long until you want to do 60+ and that requires a beefy frame (unless you live at endless-sphere.com, then a DH bike and a crystalyte 5x hub is all you need). Pretty much instant gratification. The maker of the GPR-S electric motorcycle will sell it as a rolling chassis too, basically bolt in parts and go.
220 is much faster, assuming you have a big enough charger to max out a 110 outlet. But then you are limited to your garage, or purpose made charging spots. 110 outlets are everywhere. Really depends on the size of the battery pack, for an ebike it doesn't matter unless you need to charge in under an hour, but for a car its the only way to charge in less than 8.
Cool man, thanks, I'll look in to it and let you know if I get stuck on anything.
8 hours seems like a long charge. I guess you could drive to work and home if you charge there though.
How do they work if you get stuck in traffic? I'm assuming they hold up decent to stop and go or 3mph for 2 hours.
