Hypercraft, Geiser Bros. unveil EV desert race truck at SEMA

The 1,600 HP race truck was featured in the North Hall at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas.

Hypercraft, a company supplying turn-key electric vehicle powertrain systems for high-performance racing and power sports vehicles, and Geiser Brothers, builders of off-road car and truck chassis, announced a partnership to develop the world’s first unlimited EV desert race truck to go head-to-head against internal combustion engines in long-distance desert races.

The 1,600 HP race truck was featured in the North Hall at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas. Hypercraft projects the full release of its electric propulsion system by February 2022.

“EV propulsion offers many benefits that make the race truck experience much safer, quieter, and more cost efficient — with fewer moving parts, and greater reliability,” says Jake Hawksworth, founder and CEO of Hypercraft. “Many people are excited about EV performance, but the public wants to see that high-performance applications are reliable, have the endurance, and are widely available to builders, innovators, and specialty manufacturers like Geiser Brothers. Hypercraft is here to show that the technology is available now. We are excited to play a significant role in changing consumer perceptions, and providing EV accessibility to everyone.”
