EV: the Oregon DMV

Me: “Hello, I am wondering about registering alternative fuel vehicles in Oregon. What do I have to do if I want to convert a car to electric?”

Linda: “Just check the correct box on the application. We have gas, diesel, electric, propane, and other.”

Me: “That’s it?! I could rip out an engine and throw in a bunch of bateries and you’ll let me drive it around?”

Linda: “Yes. Unless you are in the Portland-Metro area, then you’d have to pass the Department of Environmental Quality emissions test, too.”

That is way too easy!!
