Default Electric Blue Motors

Hi,

I've been lurking on this site for a while now, working up the courage to start my own conversion. My plans got somewhat sidetracked by my getting deployed to the Middle East (I'm in the Army Reserves)!

My plan now is to find a good conversion company to do the work for me while I'm here, so I'll have a completed EV when I get back. I've looked at several EV Conversion companies and all have advantages and disadvantages. The one I'm zeroing in on is Electric Blue Motors out of Flagstaff, AZ (not Wayne's EV-Blue out of Kansas -- I emailed him too and he's great also).

Their sales rep, Dustin Donahue seems really eager to help and willing to work to get me in the car I want (I'm looking for an EV that has a little 'something' special, e.g. a nice classic car like a Corvair or Mustang). Electric Blue Motors has been the most helpful and flexible.

They're a relative newcomer to the conversion business, which doesn't bother me per se. But my question is, has anyone worked with Electric Blue Motors? Any references?

I did a search here and got a few hits, but nothing really positive or negative about the company and no one that has actually had an EV converted by them.

Thanks!

Mark

Since no one else has responded, I'll reply to my own question . I did run across someone that is using Electric Blue and she seems very satisfied with their work. She's expecting her Karrmann Gia to be delivered in Oct.

Do they have a website you can link? Maybe you can link wherever you found this woman at.

For you lazy people out there.


I looked it over, its very barebones. If I had any money I might call them and do some inquiring, but as it is even if I did I'd be doing a DIY project.

Welcome to the EV world and this site. You're header doesn't say where you are, but if you are anywhere near here (Northeast PA) I'd be honored to help you with your conversion.
Thank you for your service.
God bless,
