Conversion CostNot sure. Some funny things happened including a canceled EV Conversion workshop in Northern California and the batteries making the trip from San Diego anyway... figure $16k
These guys have their Zivan set for 240 volts. They have the big 240AH batteries and have gotten 50 miles of range. I think the roof rack for delivering their companies steel products helps with the range.
