We’re Changing the Way the World Thinks About EV Conversion
By simplifying design and scaling production, we’ve made EV conversions accessible to more people, through cost-effective, easy to install, bolt-on kits.
Fleet EV CoNversion KITS
Our simplified solutions make converting your existing fleet to EV much less expensive, and more sustainable, than buying new.
Our direct-drive solutions eliminate the old gas engine AND transmission. Powering the vehicle directly through e-axle(s), a transfer case, or center drive unit(s) increases efficiency of the system while also opening up more options for optimal battery placement for weight distribution.
Founder / CEO
Austin-based entrepreneur / industrial designer / automotive enthusiast with 20+ years managing teams and bringing new products to market.
- With 4 generations of automotive heritage behind him, Calandruccio saw a demand for simpler, safer, and less expensive EV conversions.
- While sketching with his son, the idea hit him for commercialized ‘direct drive’ EV conversion kits.
- By scaling a simple, modular design which could be installed by any mechanic, prices would be reduced while safety and reliability would increase.
- The designs (and business model) were patented, a proof of concept vehicle was built, and CEV Motors was born.
