Additional FeaturesIncluded is a 220V/20A 220V rapid charger (manufactured by QuickCharge) which will come with the car. The batteries were replaced in May 2010 and still have about 2 years of life left.
Total Conversion Cost was $7,765. The batteries were replaced in 2010 (cost $1600).
Included is a 220V/20 rapid charger ($850).

Unfortunately, on 8/2 the controller died and will be approximately $1500 for a new one from EVAmerica. I'll cover the cost of a new controller.

Would like to get what I have in it, if possible: $7000 : ($7765 conversion cost + $850 charger - $1500 for a new controller - $115 to round down to $7000).

Feel free to email me if you're interested. The price is negotiable.
