3 of the Best Eco-Friendly Classic Cars
Category : Auto Insurance
The reliable combustion engine is at the heart of the classic vehicle experience – but it doesn’t have to be that way anymore.
This is because a new breed of vintage machines is emerging: eco-friendly classics that run on batteries rather than gasoline and use electric motors instead of engines. Here a few best classic cars for the environment.
Jaguar E-type Zero
Each version of this reinvented icon will be restored and converted at the British firm’s Classic Works in Coventry, where it will get a 40kWh battery and electric motor, which will give it a range of roughly 170 miles and acceleration that is faster than the original Series 1.
Swind E Classic Mini
The Swind E Classic Mini is powered by an 80kw (110bhp) motor that can go 125 miles and reach 80mph when combined with a 24kWh battery. The 9.2 second 0-60 time of the upgraded pocket rocket is a lot faster than the original.
Electric GT Ferrari 308GTS
There is now a silent electric powertrain where there was formerly a snarling V8 that shot 250bhp through the vent-heavy Italian stallion’s rear wheels. One capable of delivering 330bhp. And it goes from 0 to 60 in under five seconds. That’s a far cry from a Nissan Leaf.
When searching for the best classic cars for the environment, one needs to look no further than the above vehicles.
