    Hi all, I am dabbling in the thought of converting my 30-year-old Lada Niva to electric, I live in the UK so the car is extremely rare (especially being an early body shell RHD MPH car), I have been drawn in by the outlander PHEV Meiden 60kw y61 motor for a few reasons; -Its output shaft...
  2. Technical Discussion
    Hi, I'm contemplating an EV conversion on a late 70's / early 80's 4x4 Toyota pickup. From research that I have done, I know that folks highly recommend staying away from heavy 4x4 components but I live in a location that 4x4 is needed with snowy winters. Does anyone have any advice or links...

  7. All EV Conversions and Builds
    I was wondering if either of those would make good EV's while still having part time 4wd ability and bad weather control? I live in Colorado where the weather changes every 5min or so, so I would need a car that could do well in snow/rain/cold/hot; much like either of them can now. I currently...
