Wilderness Electric Vehicles will soon have available hybrid conversion parts for Kit #1, Kit #2 and Kit #3.  The heart of this hybrid conversion kit system is a Power Conversion Charger Unit (PCCU) designed and manufactured by us, Wildnerness EV.  This unit is capable of converting 110 volts AC, 60 hz, electricity into DC power for charging batteries. It can convert house hold power to DC voltages including 48 to 96 volts at 5 to 30+ amp charging rates.


Because of our PCCU converts common AC power into DC charging electricity, the batteries in our EVs can also be charged with off-the-shelf generators.  There are many generators on the market today any of which can be used with our PCCU.  Especially interesting is using a diesel generator as shown in this picture, and running the generator on renewable fuels such as bio-diesel.  We have also ran small diesel generators on waste vegetable oil, a.k.a. french fry oil, using a preheating system that injects the oil at temperatures above 160 F.


You, the customer can decide which generator you would like to have installed in one of our electric conversion vehicles. You can also add our PCCU to any one of our conversion kits and use a generator you may already have sitting in your garage. The generator size needs to be 2000 watts continuous output, up to 10,000 watts. The significant limiting factor being the size and weight of the generator, and where to fit it in the vehicle. With our Volkswagens we usually put it in the front under the hood where the gas tank was. Again, we focus most of our efforts on simplicity, cost and practicality.
