This is one of the better articles I read on the Sky.
This is on the equinox, not too technical...
I'm mostly wondereing about the quality of the car and the owners experience. The 1st article says they made 300 conversions on their 2 seaters (Sky and Solstice). Maybe they sold... 100? or 150? if so, WHERE are those owners and how do they like their purchases? Anyone seen a users group for them?
As far as direct contact -
I called them at their factory. Asked 2 things -
1) Can I bring in a Saturn with a blown engine (makes the car cheaper) - Answer Yes. As long as I get it to them, they are happy. They'd still remove the ICE and dispose of it keeping any resale funds. (Which is fine for me)
2) The $7500 tax credit. - Answer, in order to qualify for the $7500 tax credit, I'd need to deliver an untitled
car to their factory. Then go thru the conversion process (yes they remove and sell the ICE, keeping any proceeds).
I agree that $25K is pricy, but after considering whats in the conversion, I'm not sure that its unexpected nor out of line. In the article above, it says they have a 37KW battery pack. Lithium Iron Phosphate. Looking at the cost of the dual A/C motors, the controllers, the BMS, chargers and batteries and some profit to stay in business, their conversion charge may be just fine until battery prices come down (if ever).
I'd like to find where some of those Sky/Solstice owners are talking/writing....
