Electric Van Conversion
Going green to save green
New Eagle was contacted to convert an OEM commercial vehicle into an electric one to help a customer to save on fuel costs for its shuttle services. New Eagle helped select an electric powertrain system, develop the vehicle’s controls and wiring harness, and integrate the system.
Creating the custom system
Using the EV supervisor software to jumpstart the control development process, New Eagle’s engineers succeeded in getting a first-version of the van running within the week. Next, New Eagle customized the software to meet the customer specifications.
By the end of the project, New Eagle had designed a custom kit of hardware and software that could be used to transform nearly any van of the same make and model from an OEM to an electric one. With New Eagle, the customer was then able to launch a business converting gasoline vans to electric.
