Electric Motor for Jeep EV Conversion

Cascadia Motion E-Motor and Inverter

Last year I decided to convert a 99 Jeep Wrangler into fully electric. It took us about half a year to find the right Jeep.  As soon as we had it, we started to disassemble it. We analyzed potential powertrain configurations and ended up with one front electric motor and inverter which we ordered from the company Cascadia Motion

Visiting Cascadia Motion in Portland – Oregon

I was so excited to meet Larry Rinehart and Travis Gintz during our customer tour through Oregon and see our E-motor, inverter and gearbox system in person. I was honestly surprised about the size of the it – it is so small compared to the huge engine (and transmission) that we took out.
