These new relationships will allow Electrogenic’s UK engineered conversion kits to tap into the U.S. market for the first time. The partnerships will enable American enthusiasts to convert automotive icons such as Land Rover Defender, Jaguar E-Type, classic Porsche 911 and Triumph Stag to electric power, the Oxford, UK-based company said.
Vermont based TATC, known in North America and beyond for its painstaking, ‘nut-and-bolt’ restoration work on Land Rover Defenders, will install Electrogenic’s electrification kits for the much-loved Defender models, as well as two other British automotive icons, the Jaguar E-Type and Triumph Stag, the company said.
Dallas-headquartered Xerbera – widely respected for its comprehensively re-engineered custom Land Rover builds, as well as its restoration work – will offer Defender conversion and restoration packages. It will also carry out conversions of Jaguar E-Types, Porsche 911s, and other models that become powered by Electrogenic.
The development is part of the company’s international expansion as it plans to make more announcements regarding other territories in the coming weeks and months.
The new installer network will be able to fit Electrogenic’s range of transformative ‘drop-in’ EV conversion kits, delivering proprietary ‘plug and play’ electric drivetrain technology, to the rapidly growing international market, the company said.
“We’ve been inundated with enquiries from North America since we first revealed the kits, which convert automotive icons to sophisticated EV power, so we’re delighted to have such fantastic partners serving customers across the pond,” said Steve Drummond, co-founder, Electrogenic.
By leveraging the international network of exclusive partners, Electrogenic will cater to the significant global demand that exists for its highly innovative EV conversion technology, the company said.
The ‘plug and play’ powertrain solutions reflect Electrogenic’s approach of developing and manufacturing its own technology, which includes in-house designed software, printed circuit boards (PCBs) and digital dashboards, as well as bespoke Battery Management Systems and vehicle charging technology, the company said. The driver interface also gets attention, with sport, eco and traffic modes, as well as a regen-based hill-descent control function for the Defender.
All drop-in kits drive through single speed, fixed ratio transmissions, and are capable of up to 6.6 kW AC charging, as well as rapid CCS charging, the company said.
