Classic Cars go Electric ... Good or Bad?


Classic Cars go Electric ... Good or Bad?

Just imagine that you are the proud owner of an Oldtimer or a Classis Car. You have spend a large sum of money on buying your dream Car ... The one Car you have been dreaming of since your younger years... Now you have it, you love it, ... drive it ...



The Problem

By 2040 Diesel and Petrol Cars will be phased out and Oldtimers or Classic Car Owners might have problems to keep their Treasures on the Road, due to ever changing laws about Emissions and Air Pollution.

The Electric Solution

Introducing E-type Zero – a Series 1.5 Roadster fitted with a bespoke Electric Powertrain. E-type Zero is totally original in specification, driving and handling like an original Jaguar E-type but with a 21st century state-of-the-art electric motor and modified instrumentation. 46kg lighter than the original E-type, E-type Zero achieves 0-100km/h in just 5.5 seconds, with a 40 kWh battery delivering a range of 270km on a single charge ...

Car mechanics and specialised technicians have set up shop to Change a lot of the Oldtimers and Classic Cars from Diesel or Petrol to Electric. Jaguar with the E-Type is only an example in the UK, ...

Other companies, have been working with other Classic cars, like Volkswagen, Porsche and Mini Cooper,...

Take a look at Zelectric Motors in California ...




Startup Ian Motion in France ...




This change will be slow and expensive in the beginning. Just like the evolution in the production of Cars in General and the tradition of tuning or adjusting in motorsport, some clever minds will come up with better techniques and cheaper solutions.

Pro

Going Electric might be the solution everyone has been hoping for ... Car Owners can keep their Oldtimers or Classic Cars on the road, if they choose to change from a Diesel or Petrol Engine to Electric. These historic cars will continue to Cruise on our Roads and Everyone can continue to enjoy their Charm and Beauty.

Contra

Purists will say that changing an Oldtimer or a Classic Car from Diesel of Petrol to Electric will take away that unique sound of the engine, the smell of the fuel, the true combustion engine experience ... nothing will be the same ... the cars in their original form would only be a memory in their heads ... replaced by Electric ...

Conclusion

Nobody knows what the conclusion might be, or if we will manage to keep our Oldtimers and Classic Cars on the Road, but you might have some thought about this...

The Electric Car industry and everything connected with it are or will be huge users of servers, desktops, laptops, tablets and smartphones to perform the tasks they need to Design, Develop, Supply, Manufacture, Market or Promote, Distribute, Sell, Service or repair millions of cars.
