There's a 1986 Honda : CRX-EV currently at $5,800 (more pics here). It's fairly minimal but it is complete. This seller seems to make and sell one of these conversions every once in a while. I think his last one was the 95 red Metro-EV. There's also a Festiva at his site.

They used to turn out much cheaper "scrapyard Metro" conversions (a la ForkenSwift) - the "base" model using the J&H motor and a single ON/OFF contactor (with "launch control" achieved using the clutch). I saw several of those sell for around $2500 US.
The more recent Metro, Festiva, Civic & CRX conversions are a little more sophisticated . And the price is pretty good for a conversion with all new parts.
Good for him. I wonder how much he makes on each one.
is it possible to charge these homemade evs at public ev charging stations?
I know out here in california there are an abundance of free charging stations that are never being used cause no one has an ev.
The public charging stations used weatherproof inductive paddles, if I'm not mistaken. Most home-builts just use standard plugs. That's not to say you couldn't equip a home-built with the right kind of hardware.
