Rock musician Neil Young has teamed up with nationally recognised performance mechanic Johnathan Goodwin with the aim of creating an inexpensive, mass-produced electric car. Young's 1959 Lincoln Continental is being converted as a prototype.
Young indicated that he wants to stop giving away wealth to oil-producing nations. According to Goodwin the technology necessary to accomplish their stated goal has existed for a long time. The pair have already road tested a prototype power system.
"You know, I thought long ago you could change the world by writing songs. But you can't change the world by writing songs... we could change it with this car," said Young.
