Default Electric MG ZS launch in India today

Could I have my V6 converted to electric? Should I? Seriously?

I worked on a ZS EV last week. Interesting car.
Less than premium build quality though. Silly things like seam welds not uniform and sharp edged metalwork.

You just need to find a scrapper Tesla.

And about 1000 hours to do the conversion!

I have not looked, but itís a matter of time before someone entrepreneurial sees an opportunity to offer the conversion at a competitive price.
