1966 Zelectric VW Microbus EV Conversion
This is a fully electric-powered 1966 VW Microbus.
It has been built out by Zelectric, a company that turns older cars into electric vehicles.
This custom-built electric vehicle has upgrade3d power steering, a rearview camera, regenerative braking, LED headlights and taillights, an Alpine sound system with Bluetooth, and more.
It’s RWD and features an electric motor coupled with a 32 kWh Tesla battery.
This retro van seats up to 7 people.
You can charge using an AC cord or a J1772 charge port for faster charging at power stations.
The van has a top speed of about 100 mph, a range of about 85 miles, and about 100hp of power on the electric motor.
Omaze is actually giving this van away using a fundraiser. The winner wins the electric 1966 VW Microbus from Zelectric (even taxes and shipping are covered), plus, $20,000 in cash.
