We convert cars to electric
There are 1 billion cars in the world. As we convert to an electrically propelled society are we going to scrap all those cars? Instead, let's develop affordable ways of converting those cars to electric.
We recommend budgeting £30,000 or more for an appropriate conversion and other sympathetic upgrades.
A classic 1993 Rover Mini converted with a Nissan Leaf motor and drivetrain.
This is an original Japanese import.
We converted this Mini for the University of Birmingham.
A 20 kWh battery pack was split between the boot and under the rear seat.
Costs just around £1 to charge. Does 60-70 real-world city miles on one charge with upgrades for longer journeys available.
Charges from a 13A household socket. If you can charge your phone, you can charge this car!
Average London journey is 5 miles so, used daily, the car requires charging roughly once a week. That means fuel costs for this car can be as little as £50 per year!
Congestion Charge exempt.
Free residents parking in many London boroughs.
