DO YOU own a classic Land Rover Defender or Range Rover? Are you also entertaining thoughts of converting them to electric power and have a couple of hundred grand to spare? If so, luxury classic electrification specialists Everrati would love to hear from you.
The electrification of classic cars is currently a booming business. Founded in 2019 by entrepreneur Justin Lunny and automotive specialist Nick Williams, car fans who shared a vision for preserving classics in the new age of battery-powered motoring, English company Everrati have already established their name by producing electric versions of some pretty desirable cars, including the Porsche 911 (964), Land Rover Series IIA, Ford GT40 and the Mercedes-Benz W113 SL 'Pagoda', with every vehicle tailored to the customer's specification.
Now, the Oxfordshire-based firm are adding the Range Rover Classic and Land Rover Defender to that list of cars which can be converted and restored/upgraded by using Everrati's own bespoke electric powertrain and "best-in-class Marque-specialist build partners".
"We are extremely proud to announce our plans for the Range Rover Classic and Land Rover Defender, redefining them with our state-of-the-art 4x4 EV architecture, already proven in the Land Rover Series," enthuses Lunny.
"These vehicles set new standards at launch – we will do the same again with our advanced technology, as we transform these icons, enabling them to live on in the age of electrification.
"Perfectly at home in London, Cornwall, Monterey or The Hamptons, these vehicles are right in the current zeitgeist; rolling pieces of art that will give their owners, who are mavens of sustainability and responsibility, a clean and distinctive and luxurious way of travelling.
"At the same time these progressive machines will have a legacy, being preserved for generations who will be able to continue to use and enjoy them guilt-free, with zero emissions, as the automotive landscape changes around them."
Everrati’s Range Rover Classic conversions will cost £230,000 plus VAT and the donor vehicle, while the Land Rover Defender will set you back a mere £185,000, plus VAT and the donor vehicle.
