Heynow - where do you live again? (This is Peter, right? GTA?)

I'll be there. As far as conversions, there will be a small selection: ForkenSwift, professional Jetta conversion, 914 conversion, Ford Ranger, possibly a Dutton kit car (similar to Lotus 7). There may be a pair of serial hybrids: Chevy Cavalier & Miata biodiesel (both with trunk mounted gensets). Also a pair of Solectria Force sedans, various home built & professional e-bikes and a super sexy Go-One with electric assist.

If you're in the GTA, I'd suggest talking to the Durham EV Association - much closer!
