Last week, General Motors (GM) presented an old Chevrolet Blazer that had been given the treatment by a conversion package to transform it into an all-electric-powered vehicle. It was mentioned that this practice will increase over the next few years.
This week, something similar was announced from across the pond, in England to be precise.
This package, developed by British firm Swindon Powertrain, is designed to refit old Mini Coopers. To that end it’s designed specifically to fit into the small frame of a Mini, which is no small task. The kit is delivered with all the necessary supports to make the installation doable, if not easy.
Known as the HPD E Powertrain, the kit includes an electric motor able to deliver a maximum 160 hp and a transmission mounted in the rear of the car.
