Roberts Electric Vehicle Conversion Project

This project is just beginning! Some time ago I saw a Dealer promo for the Suzuki Swift+ here in Canada for $9,995.00! Even here that was one steal of a price. Of course - this is just one of the parts to such a project, but still a pretty big one, even so!

So - time has past, and I figured - let's go have a look and see if it is still for sale at that price! Sure enough - it was still up on the display ramp with the BIG Yellow Numbers "$9,995" on the Red Swift+!

Taking another look at this car, with the idea to make it the base 'Donor Vehicle' for an Electric Vehicle conversion has been my thought since I first saw the incredible price.

This is one view of the car here!

Of course - up until the vehicle is actually purchased - I am open to alternative vehicle considerations!

A step on the pathway to my New Car Conversion has begun!
I have aquired a 1989 Pontiac Firefly that has been Converted from Gas to Electric as a School Project. I am cleaning it up at this time. See Forum Below: '' for more info.

The Car was aquired from Howard Hutt, President of the Electric Vehicle Society of Canada, and I have made a website for tracking that project at It includes a link to a Blog (External) and a link to information I posted on the Austin EV Site - (External).
