2008 REV ACX2.0 – 100% electric Ford Escape

Via my company, MistyWest, I consulted to Vancouver based EV startup, Rapid Electric Vehicles, during the development a 100% electric ford escape. I designed battery enclosures, air cooling systems, support brackets, motor/transmission assemblies, half-shafts, and motor mounts. As a project manager, I hired and lead a team of engineers and technicians to complete the prototype. I helped develop the BOM, supply chain, and ECO system. For the next prototype, I recruited and hired top design talent and an engineering product manager.
