Yeah he is also the one that convinced me to buy a Scion xB which is what he just drove across country in (his) - he was at AC Propulsion on Monday meeting them and is on his way back now. They are working on electrifying a few xB's I mean they have them stripped out and ready for some custom made motors. By next year they will be able to cruize Route 66 all the way to Chicago - charging on the way at electric charging stations.

Unfortunately, my Triumph won't have enough range for that.

I'm looking at 100 miles range at 60-65 mph. This is using lead acid batteries, and with very liberal use of aeromods and other efficiency upgrades.

But hell, it's a start. If I had the cash, I'd be more than happy to put charging stations in-between all of Remy's, so that cruising this route would be much more practical for hobbyists. But if I had the cash, it goes without saying that my conversion would be done by now.

Most conversions only go 40-60 miles per charge at highway speeds. The charge stations listed are over 200 miles apart!

It would be nice to have a charging station every 20-30 miles. That would even make lead acid conversions practical for long distance travel. Drive an hour, plug in for an hour, drive another hour, and so on and so forth. Or in my case, drive for two hours and charge as much, then continue.

I was so upset when i first heard about GM crushing/destorying all the EV1s.

What a waste.
