Neil Young’s ’59 Lincoln electric hybrid conversion


The engine is a 150-kilowatt electric motor that produces the equivalent of 500 horsepower. The car cruises at 80 mph and can reach speeds of 160 mph, Goodwin said. “It’s essentially like a train. We use one motor to push it down the road, with a range of 80 to 100 miles.” A generator, that produces 75 kilowatts, comes on automatically to power a rotary engine that runs on compressed natural gas and refuels the batteries.
