How about Tesla guts?

I feel like we need a running list of non-Prii with Prius guts. Oh well.

Just curious!
Better off with using a 2mode setup much easier to transplant since it's Body on frame

and you can 4x4 any car pretty much (might have to cut the frame to match the wheel base)

My first thought turned out to be an early post- an '85 to '88 MR2 would be a perfect Prius conversion.

Next would be a Tesla drive unit in a VW Vanagon. Plenty of room for both the drive unit and the battery pack, though the battery pack would end up inside the vehicle on the floor, raising it by four inches or so.

It features a four-wheel-drive hybrid electric power-train of the Lexus RX 400h which combines a 3.3 L V6 3MZ-FE petrol engine with two electric motors, one on each axle. The combination develops a maximum output of 300 kW (402 bhp), which enables the car to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (0 to 62 mph) in 4.03 seconds and reach the top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph).

But nobodies done it like this:



The Subaru Forester has the same wheelbase as the Vanagon, so cut one down into a rollerskate and put the Vanagon on top — instant lift kit and plenty of room for roll-out drawers full of batteries.

I've had a thought recently to add an electric drive in front of my rear driveshaft on my F150. The electric could to be used for moving it empty short distances, and help with starting out and going up steep hills while towing.

It hasn't gone beyond that though, I'm not familiar enough with EV drivetrains to know if this is even possible.

Not the preferred method.

Direct drive limits torque and hp from the motor, mounting and aligning the motor is a huge PITA. Constant size shaft motors are hard to find.
I also believe you'd be limited to DC series wound.

And this is exactly what I mean when I say I don't know enough about EV drivetrains, I understand less than half of what you said.

I'll stick to gassers for now, and keep on reading.
