Smart EV

Postby johnspeed » Sun Oct 19, 2008 11:22 am

Hi

I am looking at converting a Smart for Two to EV for short runs to work and back. The Smart has advantages of light weight and good crash protection. However the disadvantage is the lack of room for batteries. I would very much like to contact anyone who completed a DIY conversion or has a professionally converted one. Any advice would be welcome.
Thanks

John

Thanks qdos. I am new on here and so somewhat naive . Can I ask how do I contact Trevor Lees ?. Also, is it possible to get back copies of Plugged In ?

Thanks

Hi Thanks for the info qdos. I have been unable to log on for the past few days. Anyway it's fixed now.

Tried to get hold of Trevor Lees at Lynch by e.mail but no reply.
Has anyone else done this conversion or owns a converted Smart ?

There is one on the EV Album

Was the log-on problem your end or ours? I haven't had any complaints from anyone else.

Hi Tim

The problem occured after I changed the e.mail address on my profile. ChrisB sorted me out with re-activation thanks.
