Electric Eclectic Renault R10: 1968 Mars II

The Renault R10 was a small French family sedan that offered a surprisingly Beetle-like architecture (1100cc rear-engine riding on a swing-axle). But today’s example has been electrified…and apparently the electrification work was done way back in the 1960s when gas was cheap and nobody knew who Elon Musk was. It was a simple time. Find this 1968 Mars II offered for $5500 in Junction City, OR via craigslist. Tip from Evan.

I am selling my 1968 MARS 2 electric car, it is based off a 1968 Renault R-10. Not much can be found about this car because only 42-47 of them were made. It is 2nd generation in electric vehicles. I have all the paper work for the car, and it does not run. It would have to be towed on a trailer. I am asking $5,500 or best offer. If you are interested give me a call a call or leave me a message. No out-of-states buyers.
