    TGMY has converted a Mitsuoka Himiko with an Azure Dynamics motor and controller and a two-speed gearbox. Range is said to be 550 km (341.8 miles). They start taking orders this fall. I love the way this car looks and wish it had the UQM 200 kW instead (or any other 200 kW liquid-cooled induction motor). I suspect the AD might only be good for 90 kW.

    That is pretty cool. I'll fetch me pipe and slippers.

    They don't say exactly how many kWhs. I tried to calculate and came up with around 54 kWh but it seems unlikely it's that much more efficient than the Tesla Roadster.
