John Wayland posted on the EVDL a message about a dream (which I can't find now) about the ultimate Honda Insight EV conversion.

He had mapped out how you could remove all ICE components, install a Siemens AC drive with regen, a high-voltage system using Li-Ion batteries, and get a high-power lightweight efficient 200-mile range sleeper EV without drilling a single hole in the Insight's body, or, to paraphrase him, "without modifying any parts that could not easily be replaced." (He understood that the Insight is a limited run car that one day might be prized by collectors.) Throw in one of his custom Insight sound systems would make the ultimate FE 2-seater.
