Having charging facilities around the city made it easy to use, even with the limited miles per charge.

Support for the vehicle was provided by a Saturn dealership in the Atlanta area.

On the left is the 110v emergency charger.

I remember reading in a book about the Impact that one of the design specifications was that the trunk would accommodate two golf bags and shoes.  I can testify that they do fit in there with a little room to spare for a small cooler.

Under the hood did not show very much.  The inverter (long thing with small ribs on it) was one of the most tricky parts of the operation.  Taking large quantities of DC current and converting it into AC at a very high rate caused all sorts of problems to other electrical items in the car due to all the EMF and other "noise" from the unit.  I think they came up with a very nice solution.
