Tremec, a subsidiary of KUO, has announced the acquisition of a provider of plug-and-play EV conversion systems, Electric GT, Inc. The company says that the acquisition will enable Tremec to strengthen its product offerings in the growing ICE-to-BEV vehicle conversion market. The newly branded company, Tremec – Electric GT, will be based out of Electric GT’s headquarters in Huntington Beach, CA, and will report directly to Tremec leadership with access to Tremec’s global resources.
The company says that globally, an increasing number of builders and independent installers are converting traditional ICE powertrains to electric power in classic to late-model vehicles and specialty commercial applications. The company adds customers are searching for increased performance, while others want an environmentally friendly solution to extend their classic vehicles’ life. The company says the Tremec – Electric GT system solution provides the customer with batteries, cabling, drive motors, inverters, gearboxes, and the control systems necessary to install and operate the system safely and effectively.
“Tremec’s extensive expertise in OEM and aftermarket powertrain technology make it the optimal choice to help Electric GT reach its full potential,” said Alejandro de la Barreda, KUO’s CEO.
