Other Notes: Cost was about $16000 CDN plus taxes- more than the car is worth, but I've owned it since 1988 and this has breathed new life into it- I'm overjoyed! Just wish it wasn't so thrashed by rust and time...Getting 250 Wh/mile on highway at 55-60 mph, rising to 300 in heavy accel/regen driving. Avg over 10,000 miles (mostly highway and always with the top down) is 236 Wh/mile. Will go faster than I would ever feel safe driving it...
