Hi Pete
That would be a great project - the important things are
the range you want
the performance

A few years back the motor would have been obvious - a beefy DC Forklift motor with direct drive to the rear axle
That is still an option but they stopped putting DC motors in forklifts about 10 years ago - so they will eventually run out

The other option is a bit more difficult - but the entire drive unit from a production EV in place of the back axle

That will give you a much more "Sophisticated" machine

My car is a roadster - but similar in some ways
