A CLEANLY swept corner of a busy Port Melbourne warehouse is poised to become the birthplace of Australia's own electric production car.

EV Engineering, a new consortium of five car parts makers, will spend 15 months building a completely electric version of the Holden Commodore.

It will strip as much weight as possible from the car. An electric motor driving the rear wheels will replace the fuel tank, and under the bonnet, instead of a V6 or V8 engine, there will be a cluster of batteries.
