Why It Matters
The ICE-to-BEV vehicle conversion market has seen substantial growth, with many builders and independent installers globally shifting from traditional ICE powertrains to electric systems. These transitions, found in classic to late-model vehicles and specific commercial applications, stem from the consumer’s desire for enhanced performance and environmentally sustainable solutions for prolonging the lifespan of classic vehicles.
- TREMEC – Electric GT offers an all-inclusive system for electric conversions, encompassing essential components such as batteries, cabling, drive motors, inverters, gearboxes, and pivotal control systems.
- Alejandro de la Barreda, KUO’s CEO, praises TREMEC’s vast expertise in both OEM and aftermarket powertrain tech, emphasizing its role in elevating Electric GT’s potential.
- With the “eCrate” solutions, TREMEC provides a groundbreaking alternative to conventional ICE engine swaps, solidifying its position as a one-stop destination for electric conversions.
- TREMEC is currently forging ahead with electric drive units (EDUs) for the OEM, specialty vehicles, and aftermarket sectors. These EDUs, which merge cutting-edge motor and inverter tech with TREMEC’s six-decade-long gearbox manufacturing experience, stand as the most power-packed options available.
The alliance between TREMEC’s advanced electric drive innovations and Electric GT’s comprehensive electric systems equips the ICE conversion market with high-grade systems, armed with state-of-the-art tech and the durability of OEM-structured systems. All these solutions are tailor-made for this market, backed by the reliability of TREMEC’s distribution, service, and support.
