CAR conversion company RemetzCar has revealed its Tesla Model S Shooting
Brake, which stunningly transforms the electric car into a sporty estate
There has been major diversification in the types of electric cars on sale
over the past decade; with there now being SUV variants, sports cars, city
cars and sedans.
However, drivers that are after an estate car will have to look elsewhere as
there are currently no electric wagons in production
A number of companies have taken it upon themselves to rectify this, using
the Tesla Model S as the guinea pig.
UK company Qwest became the first to unveil a Model S Wagon, but RemetzCar
has taken it to another level.
The car looks more thoughtfully designed to accommodate the Estate-style
rear, which blends more seamlessly into the original design.
Extra chrome trim has been added to help give the car a more premium feel
and to help blend the new estate back into the original design.
New badging also adorns the car at the front, rear and on the sides and
inside the car.
It was designed by Dutchman Niels van Roij and his team in London and is due
to be produced in a coach building facility outside of Amsterdam.
In addition to the obvious changes to the car’s rear, there have been a
number of modifications inside the vehicle.
These include new trim options inside the car and new interior colours and
to the exterior with a new colour of paint which developed for the Shooting
The car's battery or motor have, however, not been modifed and it has not
been revealed how the larger rear will affect the car's performance.
Floris de Raadt explained the reason for the project:”The idea was to
translate my Tesla Model S into a dynamic and sporty yet elegant Shooting
Brake, rather than creating a car with maximum luggage space.
“Niels van Roij Design developed several options for the conversion,
focusing on premium design combined with limited conversion costs: thus
making coach building available for a larger group of connoisseurs.
“Our favourite was the option called ‘Bold Chrome’, featuring remarkable
high gloss chrome window trims emphasizing the bold dynamic lines of the
car. The result is truly stunning!”
Prices for the cost of conversion have not yet been revealed.
Qwest quotes the conversion for its Model S Wagon starts from £70,000.
California electric car culture to cheaply cook the duck curve
May 30, 2018 Analysis by the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory shows
that California’s electric car mandate could relieve “duck curve” stress at
much better pricing than new standalone energy storage, if properly utilized
