The folks at Future Vehicles have launched a Retro Electric Car Conversion service which will convert an olde worlde Mini (or other suitable bone shaker like a Citroen 2CV) into an electric vehicle. The entry level priced model will travel at 40 mph and have a range of 50 miles, but you’ll need to stump up £17,500 to experience the joy of such stylish silent motoring.
The classic Mini is an iconic city car, it is lightweight and fun to drive. Converting one to electric takes a high level of expertise, but our highly-skilled engineers have converted more types of car than anyone else in the UK, and the result is stunning. Environmentally, by using an existing car as the base for the conversion, the ecological impact is minimised.
