mainstream market to kill private conversions?

it seems that 2009/2010 there will be mass produced EVs hitting the market

Similarly, you could time your rolling deceleration from 80 to 60 and call that your resistance at ...

I agree with all above and if there is anything organised am willing to do what I can. I have started writing a case for an EV conversion rebate scheme and want to do...
