Would Mike and our Aussie mavericks find parts for hybrid - coal burning Volvos?

Is this a question for me XHeart?? .

Coincidentally I joined the Victorian Volvo Club here in Melbourne Australia and went to one of their monthly meetings last Monday where they asked me to speak about ETM repair.

When I was leaving the clubhouse one of the club guys jumps into a pristine '93 240GL wagon with badges named E drive.

The car reversed without a sound and accelerated out of the carpark without a sound. My jaw dropped as one my new aquaintances told me it was a full electric conversion with 50/50 weight distribution. Apparently the driver, a chap named Greg is a GM Holden engineer with a passion for the Swedes.

With the owner's permission photos and a write-up will follow.
Current cars:2002 XC70, 2006 Ssangyong Rodius (Stavic), 2006 XC90 2.5T, VW Transporter 2.5TDI

Many of us at the climate exchange applaud the Aussie leading the climate policy.
I am noticing CNG driven on Midwest roads.
Await your post on E drive.
