I posted a similar question to this in Shop Talk & thought I'd try here, too. I'm working on putting together a gas-to-electric car conversion, and had been looking for a lighter (@2000#) sedan, about the size of a Focus or Cavalier, for the conversion. I've had a nice lady offer me an older Ford Taurus she has, and this is where I start wondering . . . Has anyone seen a Taurus used for a straight-electric conversion? I suspect a hybrid would be _just_ a touch too complex a process for me I know I've heard of folks using a small truck, which would be similar to the Taurus' 3000# weight, but don't know how well it would work. We need to have a sedan as it is going to be a family commuter car for the couple times a week we make the 50-mile round trip into town for school, Dr's appointments, church, etc. Thoughts?
