EV conversions

For those interested in converting their vehicle to electric only power, someone is developing a "crate engine" that you can drop in a conventional vehicle and essentially convert it to an EV.

https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.aut...v-conversions/

This is something that I have been waiting for. I suspect that the conversion will be much easier and more affordable in maybe 5 or 10 years. This is perfect for people like me who would like to keep a vehicle for a very long time. What is appealing about this is that you can utilize the same driveshaft/axle design that your vehicle already has, albeit you may have to make it stronger to handle the instant torque from the motor.
