    Electric Motor Werks EMW1 E46 electric conversion claims to offer more performance than a Tesla Model S at half the price

    Presenting Electric Motor Werks or EMW (creative play on BMW, right?) E46 electric conversion kit. This electric conversion kit that Electric Motor Werks is working on is supposed to offer a 0-60 time of less than 6 seconds, 120+ mph top speed, and a recharge time of 1 hour all with a range of over 100 miles. Those are some bold claims but if true this sure seems a heck of a lot better than BMW's own electric vehicle.

    EMW thus far has completed their first and second E46 prototypes. These are some bold claims to be making without a kit available for sale and no measured performance numbers to substantiate the claims:

    Last but not least, the team has just put online its second 3-series prototype, EMW-2! The design elements have been evolved based on experience with EMW-1 over the last few months. This milestone brings EMW very close to the first limited public release of its conversion solutions later this quarter. The first lucky 10 people from EMW waiting list will soon be able to enjoy their now-clean, reborn 3-series!
    We hope they are able to come to market with a reliable, affordable, and superior performing electric solution that puts BMW's own to shame. However, can a company with no track record really beat some of the best engineers in the world with far greater resources at their disposal? Time will tell.

    Umm... no thanks.

    It would be cool to make an electric Lotus Super 7 though, maybe.

    And, once again, it's only clean if the electricity used for charging is 100% from solar, geothermal, wind or hydropower.

    How is it more performance than a tesla? tesla does 0-60 in 4 seconds.
    Some people live long, meaningful lives.

    Other people eat shit and die.

    I'm not racist, I hate everybody equally; especially fat people.

    What would make this even more exciting is if they had solar panels on the roof... THUS extending the driving range...

    This would so work on the X5... But I'm not willing to do it... at least not until Gas gets to start costing $15 a gallon

    FUGLY... I'd rather have the model though to the right...

    You could convert any car to that EMW ( you just don't have to give it such and ugly and mis-matched paint job), Leave it stock looking, its what under the hood that counts... Not what it looks like on the outside...

    Too funny.. looks identical to the M3 I saw broken down across the street from my house last week. Parked in the back of the church parking lot.
