Richard at Electric Classic Cars has done it again. A 1982 Range Rover,
beautifully converted to 100% electric ...

Classic EV conversions are the next big thing, available today. 

Most of us have a soft spot for the early Range Rovers, but while the design
couldn't be more fashionable after almost fifty years, the same can not be
said about the Buick-delivered 3.5 liter Rover V8, which in 1972 produced
135 horsepower at 4750rpm, and 185 lb.-ft. of torque at 2500rpm. That's
right, all that from 3.5 liters.

You wouldn't write home about that engine, except if you want to ask your
elders which vacuum line goes where. But the fact remains that when your
lazy, yet rather hungry V8 starts acting up, suddenly, electric conversion
seems like a salvation.

Using 15 of the Tesla Model S P85's 16 battery packs, the UK's Electric
Classic Cars turned this 1972 Range Rover into a twin-motor regeneration
champ with 130 horsepower and 213 ft.-lbs. of torque on tap, thanks to a
twin motor setup and an 80 kWh battery pack.

With a range of 175 – 200 miles and a built in regen-mode that maximizes
motor braking during hill descent, the result is the perfect example of what
recycled Tesla bits can do with your classic. Quiet, clean, more powerful,
equally functional. That's a 1972 Range Rover EV, ready for another fifty
