Dodge Charger Tesla conversion

Drive Electric Earth Day (DEED) Day is a national campaign to share information about electric vehicles throughout the month of April. On Sunday, April 10, it was held at Quiet Waters Park in Deerfield Beach, Florida. I traveled there in my new Polestar 2 to meet other EV owners and see the exciting cars and sales people there.

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