I'm starting from a similar position. Looking to convert 1 ton van and with batteries for range 200km (I'm in Au).

I like this channel, tho his videos are a bit old now and tech superceded. He uses forklift motors and a diy ev controller. an option for cheap coversions.

he even shows how to diy motor/gearbox adapter and coupling. I feel the coupling alignment method needs fine tuning to achieve max reliability.

Will Prouse reviews mostly solar and lithium batteries. he has covered a few cheap lithium iron phosphate batteries. I feel there is a sweet spot approaching (if not already) where this battery type will make for a cheap EV power supply.
