Electro Automotive was founded during the second gas crisis of 1979 by Michael P. Brown and his business partner, Roger Denault, who later sold his share of the business to Brown. Over the years, Brown refined the taperlock hub design Wasylina had originated, and expanded his library to well over a hundred model year patterns. From hand drafting, the patterns have progressed to digital capture CADD files and CNC production components unmatched by any other supplier. In fact, Electro Automotive provides adaptors for some of its competitors. Electro Automotive flagship car, the Aztec. Convert It: A step-by-step how-to manual for converting internal combustion vehicles to electric power. Also in 1989, Brown and Prange authored Convert It: A Step-By-Step Manual for Converting An Internal Combustion Vehicle to Electric Power. Brown is currently starting design work on the next custom bolt-in kit for the Saturn S-Series for anticipated launch next winter. During the 90s, Brown also pioneered how-to conversion classes, ranging from one-day classroom sessions to week-long hands-on workshops, during which students take a chassis from stripped donor to runner. Brown continues these workshops today assisted by his wife and business partner, Shari Prange. Mike Brown teaching electric vehicle conversion workshop. Brown was tapped by the Department of Energy as a technical advisor for the Mid-Atlantic Electric Vehicle Challenge, and served on the Presidents Federal Fleet Conversion Task Force. In 2004, Electro Automotive became the exclusive U.S. distributor for drive systems from Solectria (now Azure Dynamics) of Massachusetts. This brought current production, purpose built AC drive systems to the home conversion market, which had up until then been limited to DC systems. Electro Automotive and its vehicles have been featured in numerous publications, including Kit Car Magazine, Street Rodder, Hot VWs, Mother Earth News, and many others, as well as on the NPR radio program Marketplace. Brown and Prange currently serve as Transportation Editors and occasional writers for Home Power magazine. Over the years, Electro Automotive has grown from a one-man operation to a contract staff of eight in addition to Brown and Prange, and dozens of specialty subcontract fabricators.

Mike Brown
Mike Brown A Nebraska native, Mike studied engineering briefly at the University of Wyoming before settling in the San Francisco Bay area in 1965, where worked as a mechanic at various auto dealerships, with a specialty in Volkswagens. In 1975 Mike opened his own auto repair shop and gas station. During the gas crisis of 1979, a customer asked him to build an electric car, and Mike discovered a dearth of conversion parts suppliers. As a result he founded Electro Automotive, and eventually closed the gas car repair business to work full time on electric cars. Mike now lives in the Santa Cruz, California, area and run Electro Automotive with his wife, Shari Prange. In 1982, her VW was towed into Browns Auto Service, home of Electro Automotive, and by 1983, Mike Brown and Shari had joined both personal and business lives. Shari's auto education was on-the-job with Mike, and in 1988 she combined that new knowledge with her writing background and coauthored Convert It.
