No, but RIUM+, a Brisbane AEVA member, also owns one, according to this post:

Musthave EV accessory.

I don't know if it's arrived in Australia yet. It would be cool to spot it on Brisbane roads sometime.

[ Edit; Though I see the NSW one seems to be a local (as in Australian) conversion. ]

[ Edit 2: Oops! My bad... this is a possible future conversion; somehow I thought it was converted to electric in the USA. ]

The facebook link is interesting. Note how nicely the delorean comes apart for working on.
It's not the end of the world, but I can see it from here.

Pretty impressive, I wonder if I could get that EVO motor whine as a ring tone? I saw on another forum that those dumped A123 packs had their own BMS.
