Hello all,

I'm considering a lotus elise or exige conversion (S2)

  • My mechanical knowledge is minimal but I'm eager :rolleyes:
  • Hoping for a range of 75 miles
  • Performance: 0-60 <5secs, top speed 100mph
  • Money :20k for conversion
Car weight ~2057 lb with ICE. Engine is about 140kW

I see it's been done before a few times

1998 elise
Detroit auto
Rev Elise

I have read through the wiki's and am suffering from information overload!


  1. Is this something that can be done on that budget?
  2. Is this something that can be done by a virgin EV builder?
  3. Can you recommend some Motor/BMS/Batteries combinations that I can research further
