I am trying to find a suitable donar car for an ev conversion and was considering a Mazda MX-3. The weight is listed as 1095 KG. This will be my first conversion and I was wondering if there is something I am overlooking as to why this wouldn't be a suitable vehicle. It appears to be fairly light and aerodynamic. I was originally looking at a GEO as it seems that a lot of them have been converted but the MX-3 has more appeal.
The MX-3 has been used for an EV conversion too.
I have a red '93 myself and have considered converting it,
but it is just too old to be worth all of the money and effort
that I would put in to it. It is small, and would almost have to
use Lithium batteries to be viable. It is sleek and racy looking though!
There is a college in West Virginia that converted one but I have
not been able to find a link for it today.
Bottom line, it will work.
