We have converted a luxury sport car Mazda RX8 to electric power to prove that an electric car with good performance is technically possible to make. If big car producers do not have one in production it is not because such a technology would not exist, but simply because they either do not want to make it or have other reasons that prevent them to start mass production of EV’s.
Bolt is now well on the road (50000 electric km by July 2013) and drives as any other car. It is also a part of “Solar mobility” and V2G projects. Solar mobility means to be charged by electricity produced by photovoltaics on our roof. V2G or “vehicle to grid” technology means that it is already equipped with inverter that can give electricity back to the grid during peak electricity consumption and charge during the night. Bolt took second place at WAVE (World advanced vehicles expedition) from Wienna to Zurich in june 2013
