I have taken the rear axle out of my Ford Escort and installed a escort front wheel drive transaxle in the rear.
I have installed an electric motor to it. mounted batteries in the back seat. I have also hooked the manual gearshift up to where the emergency was. I can drive the car 35 mile on batteries on on gasoline using the original motor up front. I now have disc brakes in the front and rear and can run both motors at once making it 4 wheel drive. I have driven it to Dearborn Mi. every day this summer . I’m constantly improving it while monitoring kilowatts used and miles driven. I now warm the car up on gas for 3 miles and switch to electric at 40 mph with no problem switching on the fly from gas to electric or electric to gas.I sure would like some of the new battery technology in the near future. The cost is still high.I’m a member of the E.A.A. electric auto association, Michigan chapter. We are Proving technology through grass roots.
