Electrified Pickup Mods
Protean Electric's In-Wheel Electric Motors Turn Gas Guzzlers into EVs

Protein Electric made quite a splash at the SAE World Congress in Detroit, showing off an F-150 equipped with Protean Drive. Protean Drive is Protein Electric’s electric wheel system that aims to make cars more eco-friendly by giving them in-wheel electric motors.

The stats of the Protean Drive motor are impressive, with each motor capable of pumping out an additional 110 horsepower of clean energy. The Protean Electric F-150 is equipped with two of these motors and could run for 100 miles solely on electrical power, while hitting speeds of up to 100 mph. Protean Electric plans on getting its electric motor certified and mass produced in the next 18 months. My dreams of a electric F-150 don’t seem so far-fetched anymore.
