Back to the future: The classical work of Retro EV
Liked that old MG or Rolls Royce? These guys will make it run forever...
When I was at the NEC Classic Motorshow on the 11 of November, I wandered around, trying to take it all in but one car stood out. A dark green MG A sat with its bonnet open, a lovely shiny engine sat in place, then I had to look again. It was electric.
Retro EV specialise on designing and restoring classic vehicles with the hope that they can be kept for many more years to come. They have created a battery and drivetrain that can be changed and updated with ease and without disruption to the body shape. This is turn means Classic cars and potentially any car, can be up-cycled rather than scrapped.
But don't take my word for it, Michael M. Richardson who is the CEO and founder, took the time to have a little chat about what they get up to in Finland and what they want to do in the future. So, grab a cup of tea and settle down to this slight noisy interview. (I'm sorry in advance, Motorshows are very noisy.)
