Hybrid & Electric Vehicles

Cape-Ape Imports / Hybrid Mini Trucks

Converting mini trucks from gas vehicles to hybrid eclectic for Cape-Ape Imports. Conducted the research and testing for components to make this conversion. We developed a “kit” for Cape-Ape Imports to offer customers to make this change.

The gas engine was replaced with a 26 kilowatt electric motor and a 48 volt battery system.  Custom motor mounts were created to allow the electric motor to bolt directly to the gearbox.  The battery system is charged as needed with a quiet, 8 hp diesel engine.
