Government Seeking Right-Hand Drive Vehicle Converters

SEMA has been asked by the federal government if any companies would be interested in converting domestic vehicles for export to right-hand-drive countries. The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) purchases about 90,000 vehicles a year for various government agencies, and a small number of those vehicles are exported for use in foreign countries.

The GSA is researching whether it would be cost-effective to convert left-hand domestic vehicles to right-hand drive. Potentially, 100–150 vehicles per year could be converted, such as Chevy Suburbans or similar SUVs (or large sedans).
