1969 Mercedes 280 SE EV Conversion

Work in progress for private client

Job Description

This wonderful Mercedes is with us to be converted to EV using a Nissan Leaf Motor and Tesla battery modules.

First phase is to work out where all of the components will go and then fabricate boxes and brackets etc. Once that is done the car will go back to the restoration company to be painted and fitted out. Once finished at the restoration company we will get the car back and fit all of the components, wire and commission the vehicle.

Here is another car similar to how this one will look when finished.
