Car to hybrid conversion?
Considering how there are not many cars that are mass produced that are hybrids and how there are few hybrids that actually combine appearance with performance, i've been wondering if its possible to convert a car you already have to normal hybrid functionality. I do know its possible, however I cant find no kits, no guides or anything. Anyone knows how?

It seems easy enough with a kit. gm's hybrid motor is the alternator, and it flips from generating power to pushing the car. A computer thats tapped into the brake pedal switch (to learn to generate power) and the throttle (when to assist). So if there was a kit that you could just replace the alternator with a similar unit, and a computer that controls the operation of the alternator/generator, it should work on almost any car. the gm's motor is about 5 hp, vs honda/nissan/toyota which I believe is about 40 hp. In theory it still should provide gains on any car. Imagine a hybrid festiva that already gets 40 mpg!

Yes it is possible...I have found only one company over the years that makes kits though you can find a local dealer by going to their website at http://www.go-ev.com/EMIS.html

If there is one vehicle out there on the road that owners like to keep rolling it's a Jeep. The different models go all the way back to WW2. Please tell me someone out there is making a hybrid kit to drop into a Jeep. I have a 2005 Jeep Wrangler Sport I would like to convert. Can anyone help me. If you have the answer please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org

yo with Gas at $5.50 - $6.00 a gallon I think Momey would be better spent on converting my gas gusseller to a hybrid. Taking on ANOTHER EXPENSE will most definitely send me to welfare, food stamps and 3 Pt jobs ( dude... the job part I do already).
