Could Electric Motor Conversions Save Classic Cars?

Crate motors and conversion kits are becoming popular options for breathing new life into classic cars, and the latest options are a little different, as in they’re now available in electric. That means if you have a classic car that you’d like to convert to an electric vehicle (EV) you now have choice.

In the United States, such an idea might be a novelty, only for the most serious car collectors. But in Europe, several cities are discussing or implementing plans to reduce or prevent gas- and diesel-powered cars from entering their city centers, so converting a classic diesel vehicle to electric power could be justified as a practical move, rather than an indulgence.
