ELECTRIFIED CLASSIC VEHICLES

Got a classic Volkswagen Beetle, Bus, Ghia, or Thing you’re considering converting to electric? EV Works is the place to do it.

EV Fun Facts

FOSSIL FUEL FREE

A typical passenger vehicle emits about 4.6 metric tons of carbon dioxide per year. EVs are better for the planet and your wallet.

QUIETER

EVs are 2-4 dB less noisy than internal combustion engines (ICEs) at low speed. That’s a lot.

MORE RELIABLE

EVs have far fewer parts than ICEs, which translates to greater reliability.

SIMPLER

The drivetrain in a conventional vehicle may contain 2,000+ moving parts, compared to 20 in an EV.  Fewer moving parts mean less maintenance.

CHEAPER

Owning an EV can save upwards of $1,900 annually on fuel and maintenance. Imagine, no more oil changes.

CLEANER

Most EVs get power from the grid. Even so, they produce 33% fewer emissions than ICEs.

MORE REASONS TO GO ELECTRIC

EMISSION CONTROL

Your beloved classic was likely built before effective vehicle emission controls were in place—which makes conversion even more impactful. Your vehicle will not only run better and at a lower cost, but it will also no longer spew toxins into the environment.

FUN!

Converting your classic vehicle to electric will make it more reliable, cost-effective, and eco-friendly. But it will also make it fun as heck to drive. It’s hard to grasp just how great it feels to drive an electric-powered classic until you try it.

COSTS TO CONVERT

Every EV Conversion is a balance of performance, range, cost, and quality. EV Works doesn’t compromise on quality, so our basic conversion package starts at about $45,000 for a ready vehicle. The EV Conversion scope of work does not include body and paint, interior trim, mechanical repairs, or 12 Volt wiring components that aren’t up to snuff, so please keep that in mind. Your Garage Queen may be ready for a transplant, but many sleeping beauties need a lot of work done!
