$1,000 vs. $20,000 for a 20 year old car with zero trunk space left that only goes 75 miles (or 35 if driven like the gas version would be driven.)
Now, add in the fact that the electricity currently produced and produced in the foreseeable future creates more pollution at the power plant than the equivalent from a gas-powered Miata.
If I was student with 20 grand to blow over the summer, I would do something a little more productive ar at least something fun.
Here's some info about where our electricity comes from for those who are curious: Web Link
And there's a good amount of trunk space in the Eiata. The batteries are recessed into the trunk floor.
But can it be installed in a BMW Mini Cooper? That would be my dream car.
Why would you do this with a car that is already gas mileage efficient? Do this with another car that gets crappy mileage and then i'll be impressed ...
yeah, no company has come up yet with an affordable, highly efficient, fully electrical car. but the idea is still valid, even if almost a 'product for the curious' like this one.

I don't know why you would use the word "fact" in you comment. Your statements are obviously misinformed opinion.
