    Hello,
    Having fun creating virtual Electric Range Rover. Got a 2 door with no engine. Technically looks quite feasible, but I don't know whether my budget will stretch to what I'd like (60 mph, 60 miles range with reasonable hill performance) I'm based on the Isle of Skye, so that last is an essential, though the other two are negotiable:)
    To keep it simple and therefore more likely to happen, I'm thinking of replacing the existing gearbox/transfer box with a later transfer box, thus giving me a lower gear for hills (and potentially off road :) )with a single large motor providing drive. Removing the engine, main gearbox, radiator and fuel tank will save me about 360kg.
    Thinking about batteries at the moment....

    This sounds like a fun project, I hope you will providing us with photos as it progresses...

    ps, please pass on regards to Ricco the three wheeling Skye bus driver who retired not so long ago.
    (Im guessing you must know him, tis only a small place after all)
