Area Do-It-Yourself Electric Vehicle Team Featured in New Book


A local group that built a fully electric vehicle from scratch in a barn is getting charged up after being featured in a book that hits stores Tuesday.

 

The book is “Ingenious” by Jason Fagone and the team is Illuminati Motor Works from Divernon.

 

Fagone says he features several different teams from universities and other groups, but what set Illuminati Motor Works apart from the others was the fact they built their electric car from scratch with very little funding … all while getting maximum efficiency.

 

Right now the car named Seven can go over 200 miles on one charge.

 

That’s more than double what some electric vehicles available on the open market can go.

 

Illuminati Motor Works team captain Kevin Smith says he plans on touring parts of the US with Fagone and Seven to promote the book and EV cars.
