Citroen Mehari Becomes EV in France [Video]
One company which does this is Mehari Loisirs, and now they have made an all-electric version of the car, which we like quite a lot. It is called the Mehari Concept-E prototype, and it features a 15 kW (20 hp) electric motor, which draws its juice from battery packs ranging in capacity from 4.5 kWh to 13.5 kWh, giving it a range of between 45 and 130 km. The look of the vehicle is kept stock, yet it gains an integrated touchscreen interface unit, as well as additional modern gauges and buttons.
Such a vehicle would be prefect for sunny resorts, driving up and down the coast, in a relaxed manner, taking in the scenery, in complete silence, and at the wheel of a 1960s classic design. The idea of turning an old classic into an EV is really a valid one, we say.
