who will resurrect the electric car?

Trying to contact someone of importance at Volvo is like trying to speak to the Pope, who incidentally has just banished Limbo. This came as a shock to Christian Jamaicans who have practiced this dance for centuries and have offered the Pope a request for a name change. Volvo, the name is now owned by Ford, which needs the association of safety after the Pinto and the pickup truck which used to blow up on a regular basis. Volvo is known as the safest car in the world but Ford just bought the Volvo name which includes trucks, and Volvo Cars is a company now on its own. This I learned after posting the following message to Volvo.
I would like a quote if possible on how much to convert an XC70 Wagon to all electric operation.
Thank you.

The Volvo XC70 2.5T is a manual transmission vehicle in station wagon or estate format. It was my dream car for cavorting the hills of Samui and anywhere. But now my new dream car is the same car but converted to all electric, no gas. And probably my next dream car would be the same except it would be aether driven, no fuel of any kind.

Nice car, and it comes with ergonomic seats that offer heat and a Swedish massage.

For those who might read these blogs I've always regretted trashing the 1947 Volkswagen as an example of how Project Unity works. But now, the new example is the Volvo XC70, definitely a prettier car and probably more comfortable.

The heated seats might be a bit useless in Samui. The Swedish Massage
might be OK if it's a convertible (topless) PM

True, but for those who have ever sat in Volvo, Renault and Citroen seats, they know what I'm talking about. These are chairs you wished you had in your living room.

You don't see topless masseuses(?) or is it massuesi (?) on the beaches of Samui. But not far from the beaches its a whole nuther world, I'm told.

Forgot to mention, the XC70 wagon is 4W drive. Maybe you can reverse the heated seats to cool.
