Convert a Midget to Electric in Southern California!

Convert a Midget to Electric in Southern California!

Where can I go in southern California to talk to someone about having one of my cars made in to a EV?


Hi, Ricky!
Like this little MG Midget, for example?

In the Los Angeles area, you'll want Reverend Gadget.

His conversion company is called Left Coast Electric.

Regards,
Lynne


P.S. I did an interview with the good Rev. Gadge, talking about his Miata electric car kits, you can read it here.

You can also find him in the new film from Chris Paine, "Revenge of the Electric Car".

Convert Ranger
by: Juan Romero

About how much $ would it take to convert a 2000 Ford Ranger to an electric vehicle?

Hi, Juan -
Depends on whether you want to buy your parts new or used, how much of the work you have the skill and time to do yourself, and what kind of performance you're looking for.

Geo metro convertible
by: Anonymous

Anyone converted a Geo Metro convertible? It seems like a good choice based on low weight and aerodynamics but are there better choices?

Sure - here's one on the EV Photo Album.

The challenge with the little cars is "where to put all the batteries", and how many batteries you can put in them in the first place. Little, light cars are safe (and legal) only up to a certain weight.
