Hi Brad,
Do you have any pictures or videos of cars your shop has converted?

Actual Proof of the following:
Our ET Electric vehicles-
*Are a blast to drive and VERY quiet
*Come in all colors and styles
*Cruise at 75+ Mph
*Are highway, freeway and street legal
*Can legally drive in freeway HOV lanes
*Have a range of at least 150+ miles between charges

A video of a 150+ mile drive would be perfect.

Thanks,
Manny

Conversions start at $17,000 with batteries included.
Mmmmm. Naaaaaa! Not with TS and not one that can do 150 miles per charge. I guess the key term is start at. How quaint. Good luck.

Batteries alone with BMS will cost that if not more. Add into that the cost of your glider and motor and controller and all your custom gauges and you end up with a price in the 60 to 100K range just like the Tesla and all the others. Price will depend on AC drive or DC and how far you want to go and how fast. $17K base price for a cheap-o-conversion is a bit conservative using even a small lithium pack and bms.

Checked out your site and added the price for a 144 volt pack at $499 bucks each 3.2 volt pack. That comes to $22,455 bucks right off the top and that does not include a bms.

For a wimpy 90ah battery pack it is $7,874.55 without bms. Mmmmm. I guess for a minimum pack for short runs I might make the $17K minimum but I'd have to do with out BMS and maybe some other items. Like a Car. Come on. What is the true cost after being nickeled and dimed on one of these. Guess there are plenty of folks with This kind of cash just lying around.

who's to say the batteries cost $499 each? with enough volume they could be had for $260 plus freight ( by sea, negligible cost). even if jungle motors charged $350 each for them the cost of a 144v pack would be under $16k,surely they could get a BMS for around a grand.so $17k for just the pack is acheivable. if they have the proper finances i think they could sell the pack for less than $13k and possibly with volume purchases on the rest of the components make the the $17k starting price,but they wouldn't make any money at that.i could see them selling a conversion with half the capacity at $17k ( conversion only,not with donor).hybrad,get some videos and testimonials from your customers on your site.

will do..btw the $17K is for a basic 144VDC conversion with LA batts (40 mi range). Our Lithium conversions that have 100+ mile range are closer to $40K and that includes a car. No magic voodoo here, just another company trying to help save the planet and produce more EV grins...
