TDL Electronics Converts El Camino into an All-Electric Powered Vehicle

With the help of Quick Cable, Tom Leitschuh and his crew at TDL Electronics were successful at building their first all-electric conversion vehicle. Built from a 1981 El Camino, this vehicle is no token electric vehicle. With speeds capable of exceeding 75 MPG and drivable up to 200 miles without a recharge, this all electric conversion is a viable alternative to gas guzzling vehicles. Using Quick Cable 4/0 welding cable and 4/0 MagnaLug Straight and Elbow connectors, Leitschuh was able to connect the front and rear lithium battery trays to maximize output.
