When EV World interviewed Jack Kuntz for our AMP Motor Work's Secret Sauce article, the company was only just then starting the process of converting the attractive Saturn Sky sports car to electric drive.

Now they've got their first development car on the road and sharing the video of it on YouTube. According to their web site, the company is will convert customer's cars for $25,000 (plus applicable taxes), which as these things go, is pretty reasonable. The buyer provides the car and an intitial $10,000 downpayment. The company claims up to 150 miles per charge and warranties the battery pack for 3 years or 36,000 miles.

Beyond converting the initial 300 Saturn Skies, AMP Motor Works is considering "a 4-door sedan or mini-SUV."
