I realize that producing a system for the DIY community to retrofit their vehicles into all electric hybrid is at first glance against Tesla vehicle sales. Having said that, knowing that Tesla is one of the most forward thinking companies on the planet, sometimes looking outside of the "BOX" in a way that will help promote a world with only all electric vehicles. I heard on the news today that there are countries looking at setting a deadline for elimination of internal combustion engines in favor of an all electric vehicle country. I am sure that there are States in the USA that are already looking at how soon they can also set such standards for all electric vehicle state. I believe California will be one of the first on board with this Earth Saving change.
I recently purchased a 1999 Jeep Wrangler sport 4-wheel drive from my nephew and the idea of making it into an all electric hybrid using a Tesla battery pack and motor unit is a small step to help our planet. I can't afford to buy a wrecked Tesla just to use the battery/motor/controls unit.
I look forward to hearing from others on the forum both for and against my project.
Thank you for your time.
