Can the power of social media literally propel a car halfway across the country? That’s the hope of a group of high school students who converted a Karmann Ghia into an EV, with plans to drive it from Kansas City to Washington D.C., but with a twist. The car will only go when it gets mentioned on social media. So you know what we have to do.
Mindddrive is the organization that helped put this project together, taking troubled teens off the streets and giving them a project they can be proud of. Using a 1967 Karmann Ghia is a great way to get the attention of old folks, while utilizing an all-electric drivetrain will please the younger, greener crowd.
