Hi

Our shop is moving and we are selling a bunch of old stuff.

Years ago, one of our first projects as a company was a fully electric ford Escape conversion. Here it is on autoblog green:

heres a picture of Arnold Schwarzenegger standing in front of it!

Since then, we have gone through several other drivetrains and built a built a bunch more of these vehicles.

Up for sale is the original prototype drivetrain. It uses an Enova P90 and the matched hyundai motor. the motor is mated to a borg warner single speed transmission, similar to the one in the tesla roadster(different shaft keyways though)
The whole thing is mounted in a cage that bolts to OEM engine mounts.

We also have 3 battery pack cases (no modules, just the metal boxes) that bolt under the hood, where the gas tank used to go, and where the spare tire used to go. they were designed for a now-obsolete size of valence battery module.

The harnesses are extremely hacked up and unusable except for some of the connectors, the metal is dirty and heavy, and the documentation for the enova drivetrain is very minimal. I can give you the original schematics to wire everything up, but otherwise we can offer no support(unless you want to pay us. we are an engineering business after all)

Shipping to will likely be quite expensive. this is at least 2 pallets full of stuff, probably 500 lbs total. We are in Vancouver, Canada, so there's the hassle and cost of shipping across the border too. Shipping to California would cost about 440$ not including any brokerage fees or taxes.

This is a project for a highly experienced, resoursefull and knowledgable individual or group. It is nowhere close to a turnkey kit.

We would be willing to part this stuff out.

we also have this custom front body kit for sale, 290$. its painted dark blue.

That seems pretty cheap, but I'll ask anyway:
- do you have any documentation (pdfs or hard copy)?
- how about the setup software or interface cables?
- does the P90 have a local keypad (I can't see one in the pictures)

I'm in Saskatchewan so the shipping won't need to go through customs ...

Thanx for letting me know - they have not returned my email yet.

Better luck next time.
Yeah mine didn't get a reply either so I had to track their phone number down on the web.
