Yes it has taken me a month or more to dig up this list of resources.
Here are all the ones I have found. If someone knows a reputable
person, in the NW, who wants to help convert a midsize van, with an AC
or possibly DC Permanent magnet motor, I would like to add to this list.
Does someone have a link for specs and performance on hawker
envirolink batteries? After reading about John Wayland jumpstarting a
Tractor Trailer with 8 year old batteries I think these might be a
choice better than Trojan. Though I do not know what I am talking about
Batteries from heaven. Lithium Ion with twice the energy and 2/3 the
weight and 4 times the cycle life of an equivalent lead acid battery(if
used and protected properly). If someone else is considering a purchase
please let me know. It is very possible I will need to make a very
large order to get them to deal with me. And if I want a price I cannot
afford but am willing to pay. (I use Kokam LiPo batteries in RC
airplanes. This technology is really exciting.)
Locally you can contact victor at metricmind.com . He had his EV
Honda at the EV Awareness day afew weeks ago at Pioneer square and gave
me his business card. His capacitor stack seems to be unique except for
chryslers minivan. The siemens AC motor/controller systems he markets
may be reasonable compared to other equilavent systems.

I'm interested in converting my 1998 Saturn SL2 to electric or possibly
purchasing an EV. -clip-
Anyway, let me get to my question. I live in Beaverton, and would like
to convert my SL2 to electric or perhaps purchase an EV. Do you know if
there is someone in our area that does this type of thing or is willing
to take it on?
