This is going to be a neat project This 1970 FJ-40 is being converted to 100% electric drive. This thread will document the details of the build (also linked to here via ElectricGT). The new power plant will be Twin HPEVS AC-50 electric motors. The twins will be assembled end-to-end "in-line" and will be coupled to the OEM transmission and shiftable with the original "three-on-the-tree" column shifter. Target power supply & installation is 42 kWhr of Tesla modules. Twin-motors will deliver a base of 182 horsepower (wired 30s 124v on 650 amps) and 240 ft/lbs of torque (adjustable to @200HP & 300 ft/lbs) at ZERO RPMs. (OEM specs 125Hp/210 ft/lbs). Sure to be a sneaky 4x4.
