Aston Martin Has Made A Reversible Electric Powertrain For Classics
08 December, 2018, 02:18 | Author: Eric Barnett
Given the continuing popularity of classic cars and the growing restrictions on emissions, Aston Martin is convinced this makes sense.
Aston Martin reckons it has the answer in the form of a "cassette" electric powertrain.
Aston Martin says that its process to convert classic Aston cars to EV drivetrains is a way to future-proof the classic cars.
Aston Martin has slotted the new system into a 1970 BD6 MkII Volante. Power management is via a dedicated screen fitted "discreetly" into the cabin.
The idea for Aston Martin is to ensure that enthusiasts can continue to enjoy its prestigious heritage vehicles by transforming them into models that are sustainable and suited to modern needs, while also respecting the integrity of the original auto. The car's electrics are powered off the system, as well.

Paul Spires, President Aston Martin Works commented: "We have been looking for some time to find a way of protecting our customers' long-term enjoyment of their cars".
Conceived as an integral part of the company's wider EV strategy, the Heritage electrification concept has been led by Aston Martin Works at Newport Pagnell. "We also foresee collectors adding another dimension to their collection by commissioning EV-converted heritage cars".
The company expects to begin offering conversions to customers in 2019.
