What gearbox and gear ratio would you use between the motor and the drive axles?

What size tires/wheels are on these taxis?

What would be the fully loaded weight that you would want to transport, and what is the nominal and top speed needed with this weight, and what is your acceleration requirement--e.g. how quickly would be acceptable to go from a stop to 60 kmh while fully loaded?

You will also need an on-board DC-DC converter to run auxillary functions such as lights from the 12V aux/starter battery and keep it charged.

Also some sort of junction box with high voltage contactors and fuses.

What will you use to provide heating in the winter, diesel heater or electric?
