Our Mission

Fleet Conversions

An electric “repower” or “conversion” involves taking out the gas or diesel powertrain technology and replacing it with batteries, electric motor(s), and the necessary EV powertrain technology. A repower can be done on any vehicle.

benefits of repower

Cost Savings of repower

Any type of fleet can be converted to electric power. Some offer greater cost savings than others. Legacy EV will directly with grant funding opportunities to help convert fleets for the lowest cost possible.

School Buses are one of many popular candidates for repowers

— Up-front Cost: Roughly 60% the cost of purchasing a new EV bus.

— Operations cost: Saves roughly $250,000 over 13 year life of bus (low estimate).

— Grants: Grants will cover up to 100% of the conversion. Legacy EV can help acquire funding.

Emissions savings of repower

A new EV bus produces 6 years worth of emissions an average diesel bus. By repowering anexisting bus, the bus starts saving on emissions immediately. Upcycling is a common practice in many industries and will be very useful in the automotive industry.

Repowers save more on emissions than new EVs

— For every 1 ton of steel produce, 1.9 tons of Carbon Dioxide are released into the atmosphere.

— This does not even account for other harmful particulates released in the steel manufacturing process.
— This also does not account for the other high emissions aspects of manufacturing that are avoided when utilizing repowers.
