When thinking about electrification, a question that often springs to mind is “What about the petrolheads?”
With such a significant automotive transition taking place—the most significant change of the century—surely those who care deeply for fast cars, engine noise and the ‘snap, crackle, and pop’ of a fine-tuned exhaust system may dread the thought of electric vehicles (EVs).
It often seems unlikely that automotive fanatics would want to make the switch to electric, despite their best intentions for the planet, as heritage is often difficult to shake. But, there is hope for sustainable motoring yet and we’d be surprised if there was a single car-lover who wouldn’t be excited by the sheer speed and fine-tuned driving performance of the latest EVs.
Take the Rimac Nevera as an example. The Croatia-based company has exceeded all possibilities in the automotive industry and created the fastest road car on the planet—and it’s electric. But our hearts go out to the classic car enthusiasts; those who seek to restore and protect the heritage of the automotive sector for years to come.
Unfortunately, they won’t be able to run their petrol- or diesel-guzzling engines in the future once prohibition of fossil fuels kicks in, but there is hope of showing off the design prowess of the 20th century automotive world.
Everrati rescues classic cars by means of electrification
The fortunate, and quite frankly exciting, thing about technology is that it holds the ability to bring everyone up to speed. If adopted and used correctly, it can save lives in hospitals, create efficiencies in business, and even optimise yields of farmers globally.
Apply technology to the automotive sector and you open up a whole new world of possibilities—as showcased by the aforementioned Nevera. This is where we think Everrati Automotive Limited will come in.
The company’s mission is one of preservation, similar to that of the previously featured Lunaz Design, which has reinvented some iconic vehicles. Everrati has also electrified some of the most widely-recognised bodies in the automotive industry to preserve the historical designs from leading carmakers.
The company also recently expanded its offering to produce EV models of some classic British vehicles, including the Rover Classic and the Land Rover Defender.
“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. 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,’ says Everrati Founder and CEO, Justin Lunny.
“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.”
While the vehicles will sell at a premium, the key point is preservation. The electrified versions of these iconic vehicles show production line condition from back in the day as they are brought into the future with battery-powered motors.
