Converting Saturns to EVs

AMP Motor Works is a company set up to convert the mass produced Saturn Sky to an Electric Vehicle.

AMP claims that the Sky EV gets 125 miles per gallon equivalent fuel economy based on how much energy it takes to charge the batteries. At current energy prices, this will cost you around 3 cents (US) a mile.

Additionally, because the car is all-electric, it produces zero tailpipe emissions and has many other added side benefits such as no oil changes, no regular tune-ups, no clutch, no transmission fluid and no differential fluid — all of which could add up to significant savings over the life of the vehicle beyond obvious savings on fuel costs.

This sure isn’t a cheap way to get an EV, but, you gotta start somewhere, right?
