Electric Citroën HY Street-food Wagon for Lekkeretrek

  • By ivovandenbrink

In january we will start converting an oldtimer Citroën HY to electric, in our new workshop in Drachten. The old bus will be restored body-off, converted to electric and then converted again: to a snack-wagon full of honest and delicious street-food. There will be several of these in the Netherlands. Take a look at this great initiative: Lekkeretrek. The bus will have a range of about 140km at 80km/hr and can be fully charged in 6-7hrs.

The bus will be converted with a DC motor-controller setup:
