Everrati offers EV conversion for original Defender and Range Rover

Everrati is rapidly expanding its EV conversion portfolio into one of the most diverse in the industry.

The 964 generation Porsche 911, Ford GT40 (fortunately only a replica) and the original Land Rover are among the vehicles that Everrati can convert to run on batteries, and now the company also has the original Defender and Range Rover from Added Land Rover (often referred to as Range Rover Classic) to the list.

Everrati hasn’t provided any powertrain information, but the company has confirmed pricing. The Defender conversion starts at £185,000 (approx. $225,165) and the Range Rover conversion starts at £230,000 (approx. $280,000). In both cases, the price does not include taxes and the cost of the donor vehicle.

Both prices are definitely steep, but Everrati’s conversions go well beyond a mere powertrain swap. Like all EV conversions, Everrati’s process for the Defender and Range Rover begins with a full inspection and restoration of the donor vehicle. This extends to the cabin, where top materials such as Bridge of Weir leather can be added depending on the buyer’s specification.

Everrati then installs an in-house developed electric powertrain, designed specifically for the vehicle in which it will be installed, to best preserve the original driving experience. The main thing here is the positioning of the components in order to obtain a weight distribution that is true to the original.

Business is booming for Everrati. The wait for some conversions has stretched to a year, Everrati said in September.

Everrati has also started licensing its technologies to other companies. The company announced in July a new division that will provide advice and solutions to commercial customers looking to develop EV conversions.
