Tampa Bay Local News did a report about a conversion by the Clean Vehicle Research Institute (CLE.VE.R) of a 1997 Nissan Sentra to a plug-in, fully electric demonstration car. The report says the car cost $8,000 to convert, has 27-horsepower, a 60-mile range and can recharge in two hours. CLE.VE.R has also converted municipal vehicles and taxis in Mexico City and hopes to do the same in Florida. "Before the end of the year, we will start seeing electric cars and have Tampa as a lead in the green movement" said CLE.VE.R's Victor Juarez.
