Is Tesla Cybertruck Outdone By Mahindra Gio With Cheap EV Conversion?

Well, not really, but Technical Partha’s electric pickup truck is ready to roll.

We thought electric pickup trucks were a thing mostly in the US, but India wants a piece of that pie too. More specifically, Technical Partha, the YouTube channel that created the cheapest EV conversion we have ever seen. With a Mahindra Gio Compact Truck, they decided to challenge the Tesla Cybertruck with another inexpensive EV conversion, only with two electric motors instead of one.

As the Maruti 800, the Mahindra Gio was already worn out, probably a junkyard scenery element. Technical Partha has a little more trouble adapting the electric drivetrain in this case, but we can see common parts with the previous EV conversion we have shown you. Probably the same ones, such as the motorcycle throttle with a potentiometer.

The first step to get the Indian electric pickup ready is cutting the CV joint half-shafts on the rear axle. It is concerning that Technical Partha seems to do that with bare hands and no safety equipment, possibly due to budget issues. If you decide to do something similar, make sure you take the right measures to protect yourself.
