Creating an Electric Jeep!

Hey Everyone!
We are four kids from the Savannah College of Art and Design, looking to make a concept for an electric powered jeep. If you are interested in helping us, we would really appreciate if you could take our short survey.

Feel free to ask questions!

Thanks!
Heather & Team

Your question is alittle broad because you haven't specified which model. I think with the way you've phrased your survey, the results would be better suited to collecting opinions and preferences as well as obtaining an idea of the intensity of people's loyalty.

The thread originators invited us to complete a survey which is inherently opinionated and thus I voiced mine; On this forum as well as in the survey.

How was it opinionated

I completed it, it would have been better if you had just made it multiple choice.

Hey guys,
Jeep owner here, I live in Savannah and am actualy an Alumni of SCAD (M. or Arch 1995)

I've loved owning my wrangler and have been wanting an electric Wrangler as a commuter car for some time now. Love to see what you guys wind up with. My biggest issue has always been the cost of buying a Jeep and then the added price of converting it to all electric. It's a costly venture to do the right way. Is this is a final project for you? I'd love to help out if I can.

also,
Thought I might post some of the sites that I've found about conversion and what Chrysler tried to come up with last year but never brought to the market.

http://www.driveev.com/jeepev/home.php

http://cbelectriccar.com/blog/jeep-e...ctric-vehicle/

The trick is to keep the price low while maintaining quality and not burning the car or your garage to the ground while charging, otherwise no one will want or be able to buy your conversion.

Have you done any preliminary feasability studies? Even buying an old CJ withouth the engine is costly compared to just getting any old rear wheel drive vehicle. Jeep Owners are loyal and willing to spend an extra buck or two, but I wonder if you've got the break even point figured out based on our almost $4/gallon gas here in Savannah

If you want us to fill out your survey, then you have to offer something in return.

Show us the results you collect. Otherwise, expect few users to complete the form just to do your coursework for you.
