smart fortwo electric conversion

does anyone know if there are any electric motor conversion kits out there for the 2008 fortwo (US)? Any idea who is/will be making them and at what price-point?

There is a company making electric motors for vehicle conversions although not for the smart. Guess the issue might be where to put all the batteries.
