Tremec Acquires EV Systems Provider, Electric GT

The acquisition allows Tremec to advance its offerings in the turn-key ICE-to-BEV conversion market.

TREMEC, a subsidiary of KUO, has announced the acquisition of a provider of plug-and-play EV conversion systems, Electric GT, Inc. The company notes 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 states 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 all the components necessary for the conversion, including 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.

TREMEC is now bringing complete EV powertrain system solutions to this market, with designs that provide electric power and performance in an attractive appearance, the company notes. The “eCrate” solutions are designed to provide an alternative to traditional ICE engine swaps.

TREMEC is developing solutions for electric drive units (EDUs) for the OEM, specialty vehicles and aftermarket segments. The TREMEC EDUs provide advanced motor and inverter technology combined with TREMEC’s 60 years of experience designing and manufacturing gearboxes.

The company says by combining the advanced TREMEC electric drive solutions with Electric GT’s complete electric systems, TREMEC – Electric GT will be providing the ICE conversion market with high-performance systems equipped with state-of-the-art technology and the robustness of OEM-developed systems, purpose-built for this market and backed by TREMEC’s distribution network, service and support.
