Zelectric Motors - Vintage icons, hand re-built to order.

Based in San Diego, California, Zelectric Motors outfits air-cooled midcentury classics to go the distance into the 21st century.

Got a classic Bug already?
Or maybe you're just dreaming of one. We can help with that. Our services include locating the perfect match for you if it's not already parked in your garage.

Zelectric Motors is taking some of the finest designs in automotive history and outfitting them to go the distance now. We're starting with the ZelectricBug, but will zelectrify your air-cooled classic or help you find one you've dreamed of owning and transform it into an awesome 21st century drive. Porsches, Karmann Ghias, Things, and Buses. All perfect candidates.


Don't forget to ask how much the batteries will cost you per year. Modern hybrids run about £2000 per year - that's a lot of petrol! Also, ask about available speed and range. I've looked at electric cars, and - aside from special use vehicles, like golf carts, I don't see it happening without on-board nuke generators. The available energy storage is just too inefficient.

You will be able to drive from London to Liverpool in only 2 days and only 10 stops to recharge.
