World-Leading Classic Car EV conversion specialist Electrogenic offers easy to install ‘drop-in’ EV conversion kits
British EV technology company Electrogenic, known for its world-leading classic car EV conversions, has revealed details of its newly expanded range of ‘drop-in’ EV conversion kits, future-proofing the world’s most loved automotive icons.
The easy-to-install EV conversion technology kits for the Land Rover Defender, Jaguar E-Type and classic Porsche 911 will be offered by the Oxford, UK-based Electrogenic’s recently expanded ‘Powered by Electrogenic’ arm.
The drop-in kits, which have been developed and engineered in the UK, will be offered globally through an international network of exclusive installation partners – delivering sustainable, silent and reliable electric motoring to a wider audience. Powered by Electrogenic, the drop-in kits are defined by their quality and depth of engineering, developed in-house by a research and development team comprising leading automotive engineers, programmers and electrical experts.
The expanded range of drop-in kits reflects Electrogenic’s approach of developing and manufacturing its own technology, which includes in-house designed software, printed circuit boards (PCBs) and digital dashboards, as well as bespoke Battery Management Systems and vehicle charging technology. The driver interface also gets attention, with sport, eco and traffic modes, as well as a regen-based hill-descent control function for the Defender.
The drop-in kits also use highly innovative mechanical componentry, including a unique system for creating high-density battery packs, as well as exceptionally compact in-line and transverse reduction gearboxes. The cleverly packaged units ensure that for each ‘drop-in’ kit variant, the existing vehicles’ existing structure and architecture is preserved. This approach ensures that all Electrogenic conversions are entirely reversible.
Land Rover Defender: transformed performance on and off road
The innovative range of Powered by Electrogenic drop-in kits kicks off with an expanded range of road-optimised Land Rover Defender EV conversion packages, available for all pre-2016 Defender 90, 110 and 127 models.
The expanded Defender EV conversion range will comprise three different variants, each tailored to suit different customer needs and offer transformed driveability and performance in both on and off-road driving scenarios.
Batteries are packaged under the bonnet and beneath the boot floor, ensuring that interior and luggage space are in no way compromised, while the proprietary drivetrain technology is carefully integrated into the vehicle’s existing architecture, so no modifications are required.
Jaguar E-Type: performance to match timeless looks
Powered by Electrogenic have developed state-of-the art drop-in kits to modernise another British automotive icon, and to many the most beautiful car of all: Jaguar E-Type.
Options are again available to suit a variety of customer needs – compatible with both E-Type coupes and convertibles. For instance, the high-performance E-Type EV conversion kit, gives the E-Type the reliability, driveability and effortless performance to match its looks.
Porsche 911: an iconic sports car readied for the future
Powered by Electrogenic has also created an EV conversion drop in kit for what many consider to be the most iconic sports car of all: the Porsche 911. The exhaustively engineered and tested packages give this famously practical machine a new lease of life, combining sensational, clean performance with excellent everyday useability and total reliability.
