Parting out 2013 Nissan Leaf SV in White. Has front end damage but rest of body and interior is in great shape. Vehicle is located in Colorado but I am willing to ship some smaller parts.

Motor, battery, inverter, dc-dc, and chargers are already gone.

SV wheels in great condition.

Thanks for looking!

The wheels do look pretty nice, try putting them on ebay.

I hope you are OK. What car are you going to replace it with?

Everyone is ok. The car is being used for parts for a custom EV conversion!

Custom EV conversion, nice!
I've always wanted to take a Chevy S10 or Colorado, about 1999-2008 or so, 2wd pickup, and put a Leaf battery & motor in it.

The big car makers have completeyl failed to build a small EV pickup to do things like hit Home Depot, or run around a ranch with fencing or feed in the bed, also useful for work commutes under 50 miles round trip, you know. Good 2nd vehicle.

CraigsList it in Boulder. Tons of Leafs up there, maybe needing parts.

Chevy made an electric S10 in 1997-1998 and Ford an electric Ranger in 1997-2002. I've only ever seen the latter available these days.

But I agree; even a modern ICE compact pickup option would be great to have. Something like the Chevy Montana ute made in Brazil.

I had forgotten about those. The later Ranger EVs had Ni-MH battery packs which have almost the power density as modern Li-ion packs. (GM's EV1 had Ni-MH packs in the last years too.)
As for GM's S10 EVs of the EV1 era (same powertrain), that has inspired my new all-original documentary I'll entitle "Who Killed the Electric S-10?"

Good around-town workhorses, and great with a Leaf system installed, somehow. It'd be a little harder due to FWD vs. RWD setups though. Maybe just get rid of the front suspension of the PU entirely & replace with the Leaf's subframe etc. Loads in the back are mostly supported by the rear bearings anyway (delete the differential back there & let it ride on the bearings alone).

Ford, GM, are you listening?

I agreed to buy a part ... and then did not hear from OP for over two weeks.

No thanks.
