Mini conversion to Electric

Thanks for the response but my Moke is a travelling toolbox.
I merely want an electric Moke not a supercharged speed machine, so if anyone can direct me to information for a basic mini or moke conversion I will be grateful.

Have you not seen 'Who Killed the Electric Car'? 'nough said. That was one American company, probably ahead of its time, there are now major initiatives underway in other parts of the world that are leading the way. Also the circumstances are entirely different. I am no apologist for big industry o...

I am talking about all the engineers involved, not holden directly but all there suppliers as well. I for one dont think one needs to work so hard to state what is obvious to most of us. I think you, myself, and others have made the point adequately clear, Idealism versus objectivity seldom works w...

What the car industry has a 'vested interest in' among other things is; knowledge of what the public will buy. Those of us with the time to study alternatives and the interest in new solutions to the problems of fossil fuels, do not represent that 'public'. We are a very small minority. So its easy ...

OK but as I say, there are going to be 'wrong way go back' processes\ whatever we do, there are all sorts of factors at play. I dont expect any company to drop everything, trash all existing investment in tooling and infrastructure just to make a visionary, ideal change. There is also consumer senti...

To my mind, such major change to a fundamental infrastructure such as oil and the internal combustion engine, on a global scale makes the turning the Queen Mary a triviality. The transformation has to occur in an ad hoc way, given that there is no global overiding management, haltingly bacause no on...

Thanks for the info, I guess its early days and we can expect solutions of a less adventurous nature before too long! I did look at the ausmini mini conversion and it sure looks promising.
cheers

I am a newbie here, I am not technically very competent so I am very impressed with your success, Congratulations. Do you have pictures posted anywhere? The idea of converting my Moke to an EV is very seductive, so I will be interested in any future kits that may forward that ambition. I am in south...
