Interesting. This is Eric Hutchinson, the guy that used to host The EV Show with Michael Bream at EV West. Example.

Here's the website: https://www.electricgt.com/

It appeared to be two siamesed AC induction motors:

The product is a metal frame roughly in the shape of a V8 engine. Mounted to the frame are a pair of electric motors, such as the “AC50” or “AC51” motors commonly used in EV conversions, along with parts like a pair of motor controllers, and a DC-DC converter. The crate motor is sized so it fits into the same footprint as a V8 engine so that one can be swapped in to replace the existing gas engine.

edit:
As I think about it, it seems it's a glorified adapter plate (similar to Zelectric). Good idea though.
