Description: I have an idea to convert a Honda HRV to rear wheel electric and leaving the front wheel drive intact including the motor as it normally only uses front wheel drive till you loose traction ( 4WD is Hydraulically activated so easy to disable ) so I will remove the rear drive shaft shorten it and attach the electric motor to it its diff has a low ratio of about 4.5 to 1 perfect for a AC55 In electric mode petrol motor off and in neutral electric motor driving rear wheels only It has plenty of room and clearance underneath the rear to accommodate the electric motor batteries , charger and controller , It would be a sort of hybrid drive up to 60 to 100ks on battery then turn on the petrol motor to go longer distances but retain the regenerative braking of the electric motor to recharge the batteries a bit.
