Yes, Michael,
Many EV builders use alternative transmissions, I have in the past
suggested on the "DIY Electric Car forum"the use of a 4wd transfer case with
a series DC motor for higher RPM and more efficient operation at low speed
driving operation, they contain a 1::1 and 1::2 gearbox in a compact and
inexpensive package for rear wheel drive setups. Those ratios are limilar to
second and fourth gears in a four speed manual transmission. Also "EV Glide"
offers a Beautiful Solution built from a modified "Power Glide" (GM)
automatic to give low, high, reverse, and Park functions in a compact and
reliable unit. (They are on the Web.) A transmission change will usually
require a modification of the transmission mount but it can be done
reasonably. (I can not recommend "Idea Theft" but a local transmission
mechanic can propably copy the "EV Glide" setup because they give a clear
description of their modifications for a $1,000 lower cost...

AZD offers a gearbox/differential for front drive vehicles that mates to
their motors. Uses a f-r switch. The controller will drive an electronic
speedo.
