Everrati offers EV conversions for the original Defender and Range Rover
Everrati is rapidly growing its EV conversion portfolio into one of the most diverse in the business.
The 964-generation Porsche 911, Ford GT40 (thankfully, only replicas) and original Land Rovers are among the eligible vehicles to be converted to battery powered by Everrati, and now the company has also added Defender and its original Range Rover. Land Rover (commonly known as Range Rover Classic) to the list.
Everrati has not provided powertrain information, but the company has confirmed pricing. Defender conversions start at £185,000 (about $225,165) and Range Rover conversions start at £230,000 (about $280,000). In both cases, the price does not include taxes and the cost of the sponsor vehicle.
Both prices are certainly steep, but the Everrati’s convertible capabilities go far beyond just a powertrain swap. Like all of its EV conversions, Everrati’s process for the Defender and Range Rover begins with a full inspection and restoration of the donor vehicle. This extends to the cabin, where high-quality materials such as Bridge of Weir leather can be added, depending on the buyer’s specifications.
Everrati then installed an in-house developed electric powertrain, specifically tailored to the vehicle to best preserve the original driving experience. This mainly involves positioning the components to maintain the same weight distribution as the original.
Everrati’s business is booming. Waiting time for some conversions has lasted up to a yearEverrati said in September.
Everrati has also begun licensing its technology to other companies. In July, the company announced a new division that provides advice and solutions to commercial customers looking to develop electric vehicle conversions.
