1958 VW Beetle Electric Conversion | Lovett
Know how everyone dreams of the ultimate barn find? Well, Lovett got one! The body is pretty well-preserved, so we’re not really doing much there. The real magic happens out back, where there’s no telltale gritty grumbly Volkswagen engine. Instead of drawing stares at the fuel pump, this Beetle will creep up silently on unsuspecting bystanders in the Knoxville area and wow them with the power of electricity.
This 1958 VW Beetle electric conversion may be even more interesting from the inside-out than what meets the eye.
Here are some of the juicy details:
- Electric motor with two Tesla lithium battery packs
- Wilwood brakes
- 2-stage controller
- New red interior (custom seat placement for a tall driver)
