DIY Hybrid Truck(maybe 4runner if you can figure out where to put the batteries)


Thought of this last night.........

The basic idea is to make a hybrid by gutting an adaptor/doubler and putting an electric motor inside it.

You'd have

tranny,hybrid,transfer

or

tranny,hybrid,doubler,transfer

or

tranny,hybrid,doubler,doubler,transfer

etc.



Just stack the electric motor just behind the tranny.        Need more electric power, stack another electric motor.

Could have regen capabilities, and start the engine if needed and drive the vehicle without the engine too.




Feasible?

Sounds like a ton of work for very little result. Either go full electric or let it rip on fuel would be my thing. I'll try to get a picture of a contraption a local guy did on a 2wd. He removed a 22r head, put a piece of plate in place of it and mounted a monstrous electric motor on it ran a chain or belt I can't remember which to the crank shaft and bed holds the batteries.

wouldnt it be easier to mount it to the trans?

I think it would be too heavy to be practical, except for street use

Also, those electric motors that are powerful enough to move a car are huge...... probably the size of a tranny alone.....

egh, 6 to one half a dozen to another. He still has a clutch and 5 gears. If for some reason the speed controller hangs or something he can still press the clutch to stop. Not sure his exact reason other than he works for an electric motor service company.

It would actually be easier to omit the trans anyway and run it to the t case.

I don't work for an electric motor company.............


They have small induction motors that they put at the wheel now , that's why I thought of putting it inside a doubler.


The tranny,doubler,transfer is already a bit of a modular system, that's another reason I thought of putting it there, just stack them up.


Maybe 25hp for creeping along in traffic,  it would add extra torque for crawling.

I was referring to the man local to me that built his electric set up. He works for a local electric motor company.

And more acceleration..........


Here's some retrofit wheel motors:

want 735 ftlbs?

I was just thinking with the stack of tranny etc., you'd only need 1 motor, and it would be easier to retrofit....
