Go electric in classic style - Bespoke Mini conversions

Want an electric car with the looks of a classic, the feel of a conventional car, and the power to zoom up hills and travel over 50 miles with no worries?

 

Future Vehicles is now offering high quality, bespoke conversion of the classic Mini. They have teamed up with highly experienced EV converter, and landed on the Mini as the perfect conversion car.  Itís mechanically simple, great fun to drive, light (usually between 600 and 700kg depending on model) and a classic, well-loved shape.  Environmentally, by using an existing car as the base for the conversion, the ecological impact is minimised.

 

Performance can be matched to the customerís needs Ė but of course higher performance will mean higher cost.  The entry-level car is based on lead batteries, and has a top speed of about 40 mph and a range of around 50 miles.  Customers who are happy to pay more can buy a lithium-powered version which will be lighter, and go further and faster.

 

"The electric Mini is a more expensive option than other electric cars, but the level of interest we have had so far suggests that people understand why they would pay a premium for this unique, iconic car with excellent performance" said James Tucker, director of Future Vehicles.  "Given the parking and congestion charge costs, even a lithium Mini could pay for itself within 3 years".

 

True to Mini fashion, you can build your electric Mini exactly to your specifications, styling your car to match your personality.  Prices start at £17,500 inc VAT for the entry level car and up to £25,000 for the highest spec lithium powered car.
