This edition of the WhichEV podcast welcomes special guest Norman Crowley, founder of the Cool Planet Group and AVA, a leading force behind classic car EV conversions and major shareholder in Electric Classic Cars. Norman and WhichEV editor James Morris discuss the idea of converting classic cars to electric, including Norman's own Ferrari 308. We also discuss the value of putting electric engines in existing cars, as well as reimagining famous designs in electric form via a concept AVA calls “hyperclassics”.
These are the videos mentioned in the podcast.
