Builder Don Swadley worked with Stealth EV, an electric-vehicle tech company in Oceanside, Calif., to amp up his dune racer. It’s now equipped with an electric motor from a wrecked 2015 Tesla Model S.
The truck is a svelte 2,600 pounds. The Tesla Performance RWD setup was refurbished for sand duties by 057 Technology. The Ludicrous-mode-capable motor from a 2015 Tesla combines with an Enerdel lithium-ion 22 kilowatt-hour battery pack for about 30 miles’ worth of antics in the sand.
