Discover a new era of classic car restoration with Finch Electric Vehicles.

Marrying Finch Restorations' six-decade heritage of vehicle preservation and restoration with cutting-edge EV technology, we offer a unique opportunity for classic car enthusiasts to transition to electric while preserving the soul and aesthetics of their beloved vehicles.


Reversible 'Drop-In' Kits

Each electric conversion is 'drop-in' and reversible, ensuring your classic car's unique character shines through, now with electric efficiency.

Do No Harm

When converting your vehicle to electric with our EV 'drop-in' kits, we do not need to drill or cut any of the bodywork or chassis. Therefore, the conversion is fully reversible.


All EV conversions provide a big increase in torque. Depending on your choice from our motor options, most conversions also provide a significant increase in power. Your classic car becomes a reliable and renewed pleasure to drive.

Put your ICE on Ice

If you wish to store your original Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) for posterity after the EV conversion, we can prepare and pack your engine and fuel tank for long-term storage ... put it 'on ice'!

Putting your ICE on ice: Converting your classic or vintage car to electric while preserving and storing the original engine offers a multitude of benefits. By putting your 'ICE on ice' and safeguarding it from further wear and tear, you not only ensure its longevity but also mitigate the risk associated with aging components, especially in an era where spare or replacement parts are becoming increasingly scarce. This preservation approach is particularly crucial for older engines, where maintaining authenticity and historical value is paramount.

Ultimately, this dual strategy of embracing modern sustainability while safeguarding tradition offers classic car enthusiasts the best of both worlds, ensuring continued enjoyment and preservation of automotive history for generations to come.

EV 'Drop-In' Kits

Jaguar E-Type Series 1 and 2

Transforming a Jaguar E-Type with an electric powertrain elevates this quintessential British masterpiece to an extraordinary level. By removing the notably boisterous gearbox allows the vehicle to operate with the seamless ease of a sophisticated 'automatic' transmission. This modification not only enhances the driving experience but also preserves and melds the classic beauty with modern efficiency.

Porsche 911 G-Body / 964

The electric conversion kits designed for the Porsche 911 flawlessly transform the vehicle's original integrity while introducing a remarkable evolution in its driving dynamics. By strategically positioning the weight of the motor and batteries low in the vehicle, the centre of gravity is lowered enhancing stability and improving traction at the front. This reconfiguration, coupled with the immediate response of the electric torque, showcases the vehicle's peak performance in a new light.

Classic Mini

Electrogenic's revolutionary Classic Mini EV conversion kit will be launched in March 2024. It offers a golden solution for an Italian Job, or for a great getaway!

Triumph Stag

Land Rover Defender

The conversion kits for the Electrogenic Land Rover Defender offer thrilling performance and genuine prowess across rugged terrains. While your Defender will feel like an "automatic", it will maintain its comprehensive four-wheel-drive functionality, complete with high and low gear ratios and the essential transfer box differential lock.

Series Land Rover

Landies have a dedicated following ever since they were introduced soon after WW2. As many owners are discovering, you can renew your love-affair with this veteran Series of Land Rovers with an EV kit and preserve your heritage engine for potential reverse installation in future decades. You can preserve your Landie's inherent charm as a beloved companion for both daily commutes and adventurous escapades ... on the beaches, landing grounds, in fields, in streets and on the hills.

Bespoke and Specialisation

Bespoke Conversions
The Achilles' heel of classic and vintage cars is often the drivetrain. Reliability, power, over-heating, and spare parts are often a bain for the owner of a classic or vintage vehicle.

Through an EV conversion you can put your 'ICE on ice' safeguarding it from further wear and tear. Then enjoy your classic motoring confident of getting home safely and reliably.

If you have a dream, and a standard 'drop-in' kit is not listed, talk to us about a bespoke commission.

Defence / Military
Electric drivetrains are central to the future of army mobility. They are quiet, have no heat signature, and the overall fuel cycle (from diesel to motive power) is more efficient which means reduced fuel logistics. Instant access to stored power is also available for a range of needs, beyond just mobility.
