Open source DIY electric car can be built in less than an hour

For most of us, cars are something we buy, not build. Part of the reason for that is that each brand of vehicle has their own proprietary components, and building a car that’s a hybrid of labels, or different year models isn’t a simple endeavor (and might take 24 years, at least if you follow the recipe of Johnny Cash). Another reason is that many of us don’t have the skillset or the tools to fabricate an entire vehicle, and kit cars can be quite expensive.

But what if there was a DIY vehicle platform that was not only affordable, but also street-legal, open source, and versatile, with the option for an electric drivetrain or an integrated hybrid engine? That might change the game entirely, at least for those of us who like tinkering and aren’t afraid to get our hands dirty. And it’s here.

The OSVehicle is, at its heart, an open source car platform that is said to be an “industrializable, production ready, versatile, universal chassis”, and it currently comes in two varieties, the TABBY, and the Urban TABBY.
