I talked to Eaton and Odyne ages ago about this. Both of them blew me off for the same reason. They are at 100+% production capacity trying to keep up with orders for municipal buses, etc. and have NO interest in working with someone for a one-off or even small production run project.
Also, both of them require substantial alterations to the transmission and/or powerplant. What I kind of like about the EVP one is that it bolts on to the driveshaft and can be transferred to another vehicle in the future if you need to…
Thanks for the thoughts though.
