Conversion TimeAll original, converted by Solectria.
Conversion Cost$8000 plus shipping, and soon new
batteries.
Additional FeaturesPlug in a tape converter for my MP3 Player/phone. Removed
broken passenger side mirror and passenger side wiper and
put a much smaller wiper on driver side for aerodynamic
improvement.
Had to fix aH counter (Brusa) a couple times and replace a
fuse, but it seems good to go, now. Controller whines when
it is trying to regen with less than say, 15 Ah out,
otherwise the regen works great for stopping.
