Somebody clue me in,

Why didn't anyone reply to the April 13th post that Steve asked several questions concerning a Conversion Shop Start-up ?

Was it just the date?

Did I fall for a tease?

If so well LOL, (:-))

But if not, we may have turned him totally off and feeling we are all a bunch or uppity elitists and secretive snakes...

I believe in EVs as the world's solution and I will help anyone who's intentions are similar.

Question Re: New Company Help!! Startup here in NJ

Personally I never saw the thread at the time, and I don't know anything about starting an EV business anyway. People did answer his other threads, but he disappeared.

HAHA yeh im still working on this, I have the company name and just getting the proper paperwork for the business. Turns out there is a federal requirement to register as a ICE to EV conversion company. ugghhh but my company logo is being made up. I just wish loans would be available to conversion startups but most money is only new EV manufacturers like Tesla that just got $400 + million when i just need $80,000 to get going. The energy department, EPA, NJ green vehicles and others wont even return my calls. So much for helping out the small guy!!

Glad you're making progress but I can't say I'm surprised that a new company with no real product as of yet doesn't get much government assistance. Tesla got a loan, and they had products coming off the assembly line already.
Your conversions should be eligible for some rebates when finished.

Still working on the company, I have a name for the company and will share it once it is registered this upcoming week.

I also have a few interested ICE to EV convertors 'interested' since they heard the projected price of gas for the summer of 2010 is supposed to top $3+ gallon!

Hmm I see a lot of SUV's going up for sale already...lol

Yes, Please enlighten us, why are you registering with the Federal Agency? and Which Agency? And Who told you that you had to? This is the first I have heard of it...

Hey everyone, I'm still alive, like you care , the name of my company is Volta Electric Vehicles LLC. www.voltaev.com (just a starter but need to start somewhere).

To the question of Federal requirements to convert ICE to EV.. here is the link. I interpret this as my company will have to conform to EPA and Crash tests with a heavy battery system. Did I read this right?

As long as you stay within the GVWR I think you'd be alright, but don't take my word on it.
