There are an ever-increasing number of news articles appearing about the conversion of classic cars into being run electrically. So, this would appear to be the way forward for some classic car enthusiasts.
A business by the name of Electric Classic Cars that is based in Wales claim to be the largest converter of classic cars to electric power in the world. It is able to convert a vehicle to a customer’s specification.
It deals with vehicles covering the period from the 1950s to the early part of the 1980s so if you have a classic vehicle from this period and are interested in having it converted to electric then you may like to get in contact with the company.
The company appears to be able to offer a service whereby, if required, it may be able to offer other enhancements such as to incorporate power steering and improve the suspension system on a classic car. In some cases, as a conversion to electric can increase the vehicles power, it may be necessary to improve the braking system.
Apparently, the cost of a conversion to battery powered can range from circa £25,000 to circa £90,000. Obviously, for a specific quote, you would need to get in touch with the company to discuss your requirements in detail.
Some of the potential benefits of converting to electric are lower fuel bills as well as reducing the cost of servicing and maintaining the classic car.
