Questions and AnswersQuestions and Answers
Q: Not powered with electric motor and battery if you can not charge , correct ? (11/6/19 6:51 AM)
A: The on-board gas engine will kick in to charge the battery. It should be charged over night, but it will run with the gas engine running the generator. This is the same set up that is used in the Chevy Volt. (11/6/19 10:18 AM)
Q: The electric motor moves the truck? If so, what is the top speed of the truck? Can it go on the highway at 70mph? What is the size of the electric motor? Does the electric motor allow for 4x4 drive? Is the engine that came with the truck inside the engine bay? it looks like the stock engine, is it? What is the range for the truck after charging overnight? Is there a manual for the electric conversion? Are the people that did the conversion still around to talk with? THanks, R (11/6/19 2:17 PM)
A: Contact information for the conversion company can be seen in the photos. A supplemental manual for the conversion can be seen in the photos. I have little to no technical information regarding this conversion. The questions can be answered by Via. (11/6/19 3:56 PM)
Q: Did this vehicle come with a charging cable? It seems the retrofit company would have provided same. If there was one and it cannot be located or included in the auction, what does the female plug look like behind the little yellow recharging doors? Sorry for the questions. (11/6/19 7:08 PM)
A: . (11/7/19 10:22 AM)
Q: Hey, never mind on what the female plug looks like. I found your picture that answers the question. Thanks (11/6/19 7:10 PM)
A: OK. (11/7/19 10:22 AM)
Q: Hi there. I am very interested in this vehicle but this is a very large purchase for our family and this will take a lot of organizing. Is there any way that you could provide a range for the reserve? That way I can figure out if this is something I can even pursue. (11/10/19 8:04 PM)
A: . (11/11/19 3:13 PM)
Q: What happens if the reserve is not met? Has the vehicle been consistently plugged in while not in use? (11/11/19 9:33 PM)
A: If the reserve is not met, the transferring department has the option whether to accept the highest bid. If they choose to accept the highest bid, the high bidder will be notified. The high bidder has the option to accept or decline the offer. The truck has not been plugged in. (11/12/19 10:22 AM)
Q: What is the status of the warranty on the truck? (11/12/19 1:15 PM)
A: I have been told that there is no warranty. (11/12/19 4:00 PM)
Q: Holy cow the university doesn't have anything better to do with that money? They buy a truck that is very expensive to start with, then they converted to electric only to use it for 6400 miles. (11/16/19 9:57 PM)
A: Please limit the use of this section to questions about the auction. Thank you. (11/18/19 10:15 AM)
Q: Have you tested the power pack/batteries? Sounds like the batteries have not been charged for the past 4 or 5 years. I have looked into the cost to replace and they are between $4,000 and $12,000. (11/18/19 6:47 PM)
A: The only thing I can say is that there have been periods of at least 2 weeks between times that I have started up the vehicle and the batteries had held their charge. Other than that, no testing has been performed. (11/19/19 10:54 AM)
