Rough electric

by Alexandros Varnezis

It looks like a classic Land Rover off-roader, dating back to the 1960s-70s, but with some noticeable differences. The Series IIA model was rebuilt by the British workshop Everatti Automotive Limited and converted to electric. So to the vintage feeling add its ecological and of course technological upgrade. Under the hood, the electric motor, equipped with a 60 kWh battery, produces 152 HP, according to the company almost twice the horsepower of the original model. In terms of battery life, you can travel up to 160 kilometers on a single charge. It’s not a long distance, but it’s a start. The idea of driving an electrified, stylish version of the classic Land Rover, while not having to do gymnastics by turning the steering wheel and with choppy idling a thing of the distant past, is certainly a different approach, modern but not mainstream.
