Someone in the 40 section took two Tesla motors and built his own adapters and mounts. It connects to the stock transmission and replaces the fuel tank with a battery bank. It’s been done years ago. I think he has the files for the CNC machined parts needed. It doesn’t seem like a very difficult build and apparently he says it’s comparable in price to dropping a new LS engine in it. Battery life is the deal breaker though. This guy lives on an island so it’s not as big a deal as someone who lives in, say, Montana. But, with toyota’s new solid state batteries I’m really wondering if this is becoming a viable option for more of us.

Found the thread...
