Electric GT, a company specializing in electric-vehicle conversions, is developing a “crate” motor that’s roughly the same size and shape as a gasoline V-8 engine and is completely self-contained. The basic single-motor version makes 140 horsepower and 240 pound-feet of torque, while the dual-motor setup increases output to 240 horsepower and 340 pound-feet. Each kit comes with a wiring harness, coolant lines, DC power converter and other accessories. Perhaps the neatest aspect of the motor is that it will connect to your vehicle’s existing transmission via a special coupling. To complete the conversion you’ll need to source your own battery pack, however. Pricing for the motor hasn’t been set, but check for further info at www.electricgt.com.
