Gaza's first electric car

Electric car hits the road in fuel-starved Gaza

GAZA, May 20 (Reuters) - A Palestinian-designed electric car drew admiring stares on Tuesday from Gazans forced to use cooking oil to power their cars because of a fuel shortage.

"At first people laughed, saying it would not work, now people are begging us to convert their cars," said Fayez Anan.

Working with fellow electrical engineer Wasim al-Khuzundar, Anan hooked up an engine to 32 batteries.
