The trend of converting classic cars to electric power continues, with this kit designed for the original Mini.
Owners of the original Mini can now convert their vehicles to a fully-electric powertrain.
British company Swindon has put together the ‘Swind Classic Mini Kit’ for £42,480 (AU$76,700), which gives the original Mini a range of around 200 kilometres.
The kit comprises an 80kW electric motor – manufactured in-house by Swindon – which helps get the little hatch to 100km/h in around 9.5 seconds.
Buyers can option a 12kWh battery, limited-slip front differential, coolant pump, and a number of other options which make the conversion a straightforward process.
The company first revealed its electric Mini back in late 2019, but the conversion kit has only now become available to purchase on the company’s website for a 25 per cent deposit.
