Imagine a car that you can largely build yourself – or have a company convert for you. A car that uses near silent electric power, and is recharged by simply plugging into a power point. A car that allows you to start from a rest in first or second or even third gears, such is its torque. A car that costs literally cents a day to run – but also has a range equivalent to a car with only a 5 litre petrol tank.

Welcome to the world of converted electric cars....

Nathan Bolton has an electric car – and a new business. The car is his beautifully converted 1992 Hyundai Excel Sprint and the business is Convert Ur Car, based in Sydney. Bring a car to him and make available AUD$21,000 to $25,000 and you’ll be able to drive away in a car that plugs into a power point.
