Have you ever priced out a Lithium pack? $$$$$$ That's what you'd need to make a flat pack that sits were the fuel tank currently sits. I think that's why it hasn't been done yet. Lead acid is still the affordable route and those batteries are not very flat.I think the Element is a PERFECT candidate for conversion to an electric car. ... As it is now a flat battery pkg. can be mounted beneath the chassis.
I’m surprised your engine is giving you problems at 150k. Mine has 160k and feels like the engine just got broken in.?I have started a all battery ? powered landscaping business using top of the line STIHL equipment! I am using the fact that it’s quiet ? and doesn’t wake anyone up while we are cutting ones grass. Unlike other gas power landscaping business! We have all been there you trying to sleep in and the landscaping guys wake you up around 7-8 in the morning with their super loud not eco friendly 2 stroke engine!!! Lol and business is picking up!!!! If you live in south Florida give me a call and I could come give you a quote lol VALEBAT LAWN CARE a quiet mowing experience 754-666-3255..
