Most Comprehensive Electric Truck Conversion
I found the video above on electric truck conversion on Youtube. Based on the View Counter, not a lot of people have seen it. It is a video walk through of a 1987 Chevy S10 pickup truck converted into a Pure Electric Vehicle.
To generate torque, the electric truck was fitted with a Warp 9 electric motor. It uses 29 unit of 6V deep cycle battery (7 in the front and 22 in the back of the truck). It has a top speed is 70+ mph and has an around town range of about 50 miles at 35 mph.
This is one of the most comprehensively built electric truck that I have seen so far. It has everything! From liquid cooling system for the electric controller to a power regenerative system.
From the video, you know the electric truck owner has put a lot of love and passion into his vehicle. The video above shows if you have the time and dedication, you can convert a conventional pickup truck using an internal combustion engine (ICE) into a pure electric vehicle.
