We've heard some pretty zany claims when it comes to alternatively-powered vehicles, but Daren Luedtke is suggesting this his homemade electric van can propel itself some "500 miles" (despite other reports stating 150 miles) on a single charge. He also noted that it can be fully recharged in just eight hours, and he has apparently filed for a number of patents on the technology. The prototype Caravan, which took a few hundred thousand dollars to convert, is filled with batteries and also sports a computer that "monitors inputs such as amperage and voltage (his words, not ours)." Luedtke Enterprises is purportedly looking for manufacturers to help bring the technology to the public, and if you're interested in hearing more, you can hit the read link for a video interview with the head honcho himself.
