Steve Clunn has been building Electric Vehicles for more than 20 years. First as a hobby, and most recently, full time, in his new shop located in Crystal River, Florida.
Steve first decided right after the Gulf War, not to be so dependent on Foreign Oil and set out to create his first EV. At that time there were very few parts and very little help.
Steve’s expectations for his first electric car was not high. 30 mph and a 10 mile range was all he was hoping for. But much to his surprise, his first EV worked out much better and he started using it to pull his lawn trailer and it became his all-time EV work truck, which he drove 76 miles at the Sunday Challenge.
Steve showed his car off to many people and converted two other cars, one to replace his first work truck with a Ford Ranger body.
In 2006 Steve decided to go “Full Time” and Opened GREEN SHED CONVERSIONS a full-service shop in Fort Pierce, FL with Audrey Martin (now his wife). Together as a team they converted cars, trucks, motorcycles, bikes, anything with wheels!
In the Summer of 2009, with the state of the economy, Green Shed had no alternative except to “GO MOBILE” – “Have Meter will Travel” and our Summer Tours Started in the Summer of 2010. We went mobile to keep our doors open, traveling all over the US Converting cars at customers shops and homes.
Today Green Shed is located in Crystal River, FL.
We have since expanded our team to include Steve's daughter Sara, and her husband, Jorin, with hopes to keep our legacy alive in the EV community.
My experience with Steve began in the summer of 2006 when I went to him for advice on converting a Chevy S-10 pickup truck. Steve made a list of components I would need, and talked about the conversion process with me.
After I bought a truck, we went over the parts list and ordered the major parts. Steve is a generous guy and was always there when I needed help. I know that I would never have done the conversion without his help. Converting a vehicle was fun, challenging, and a lot of work!
Thank you Steve for your help. I recommend Steve’s conversion business to anyone in the US.
The pickup became the subject of an eBook which I wrote with the encouragement and helpful advice from Steve.
Gerald Wagner, Deceased, RIP. ( one of the movements Pioneers and sadly missed)
While these articles are a blast from the past, they represent good times and a history of our evolution. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
Thanks for all of your help and being true, honest, normal people who have been in it for the right reasons. You folks are THE people I mention in that sense every single time I talk to people about the field.
This Rav4 is set up with an 8″ Advance DC Motor, 750 Amp Controller, 15 kw VOLT BATTERY PACK, ELCON 1.5 kw charger and a NEW METER that turns the Charger ON and OFF and shuts the vehicle DOWN if the Voltage gets too low!

EV Expo Show.... Tampa Florida
It wasn’t all about speed. I was stunned by the sight of a very unlikely electric—a 1967 Morris MK 1100, rare even in its native England. The car, which runs an eight-inch DC motor, an EVnetic Soliton Junior controller, and a 192-volt battery pack (19 kilowatt-hours), is capable of 100-mile range. It was built by Audrey Martin of Green Shed Conversions in Fort Pierce, Florida.
