Defender Conversion Kit

Defender Conversion Kit

Electric Classic Cars have been converting classic cars for six years and we are now the biggest converter of classic cars in the world with over 65 cars converted.

We have used this experience and knowledge to create a complete bolt-in “plug and play” conversion kit for the Land Rover Defender.

We have taken the original Defender and dragged it into the 21st Century with a powerful electric drivetrain and battery pack, transforming an ICE relic whist maintaining and improving the performance both on and off-road.

The powerful motor drives front and rear prop-shafts directly giving permanent 4WD, no need for low or high ratio due to the huge torque from zero revs. All this means much easier off-road driving, just two pedals.

The big battery pack gives a range of up to 170 miles*, coupled with rapid charging means you can be back under way in under an hour.

Kit suitable for left and right-hand drive.

Optional extras include air conditioning.
