Right off, at this time of the day, how about the "Standard Electric Drive Kit", with a small high compression engine on propane, ( so it easily handles the high compression), say a Yamaha or Honda 4-stroke motocrosser, about 50 HP. Light weight 5 speed transmission built in. Chain drive to factory trans, or rear gearing to match torque curve. Did I say LIGHT WEIGHT. Get one from a quad and have reverse without the heavy factory manual trans, clutch, drive shaft, get rid of the 9" rear and put a Pinto rear in it. Less weight=more range and more GO.
Just Sayn...
