Converting a 2010 Honda Jazz to electric

I am very interested in your car. Can you please text me on 0423 623 901 and let me know how much you would like for it?

It sounds like the car of my (broke) dreams!
(If it can be fixed)

Converting a 2010 Honda Jazz to electric

Which brings me to my next question I guess...
Is it even possible, today, to buy a second hand electric car (converted OR originally electric) that will travel more than 100Km in one charge, for less than $15,000?

Converting a 2010 Honda Jazz to electric

I see. So, the big questions are:

* Is it easy enough/possible to source a Nissan Leaf pack?
* Would it be enough for my conversion?
* How many kWh do they have?
* Is it technically feasible to purchase TWO of those packs and use them together?

I thought battery prices were already approaching $100/kwh -- maybe $150. But... from what I am seeing, we are still in the $500-$700 mark?

That's a bummer.

Converting a 2010 Honda Jazz to electric

I have my great Honda Jazz. It's a great little car. I would like to convert it to electric. I am a software engineer, and a close friend of mine is a fantastic mechanic and panel beater. The engine *works*, but I believe in an electric future and don't want to be the one polluting my children's air...
