EV Europe: Convert Fossil History To An EV Future

There are too many car lovers out there to stop climate change. Wait. What? If that logic does not appear sound, you might want to think again while I repeat it - too many car lovers mean that there is no way of ever calling a halt to climate change.

Electric Cars Are Not Appealing Enough

The thing is, even if most of us give in to the societal pressure and the very beneficial tax cuts and government subsidies to get ourselves an electric vehicle in our driveway, there are still too many gas-guzzling four-wheelers out there. Case in point: people who only just recently bought a car will not be purchasing another one for at least the next five years. 

Or, another case in point that is even more prominent: people who enjoy old cars and who provide shelter to some of the worst polluters - in their garages. They will not be looking at giving up their oldtimer Jaguar or BMW, that they regularly drive around town on warm summer days. These cars are more than just a hobby. They have almost become a part of their identity, one that they are indeed not willing to give up.

EV Europe: Conversion As A Hot New Field

For all of those people - so basically for anyone who is still driving a non-electric vehicle - there’s good news. What if we were to tell you that you can keep your trusty old’ car while going electric? That you can convert your gas-powered vehicle to an electricity-powered one? All thanks to EV Europe, amongst others.

EV Europe is committed to working towards a fully EV future. As two leading companies in the EV movement merged, Heijnsdijk Electric Cars and EV Custom, they started to work towards making this dream a reality. Each company provided its unique benefits and advantages. Heijnsdijk Electric Cars, for instance, knew how to deliver, develop and certify EV components and lithium battery systems. EV Custom, on the other hand, had a background in full-service overhaul concepts.

After the respective owners, Vincent Heijnsdijk and Peter-Jan Schouten got together, they decided to join forces and merge, creating EV Europe. This company is now a market leader in the field of electric mobility and lithium battery systems, all in a one-stop-shop concept.

EV Europe: Conversion Examples

Over the past years, EV Europe has successfully converted hundreds of cars to fully electric vehicles. In addition to this premium service, they also launched a separate EV hypE kit that aims to make the conversion process even simpler while requiring limited materials and man-hours. These standard conversion kits are available for many car brands and types.

With one of the most extensive supplies of both new and used EV parts in Europe, EV Europe also runs a successful webshop that allows for a quick and straightforward purchase of materials that can be put towards making your car an electric one. All of these have been extensively tested by EV Europe so that they can deliver adequate support. 

The EV Future Of A Porsche 912

One example of such a conversion is of the Porsche 912, a classic car from 1969. The basis was a specially developed conversion kit that allows for the creation of a fully electric oldtimer using minimal materials and labor. This re-built car has a 90 kW engine and offers a super smooth drive, even better than the original.

Convert Fossil History To An EV Future: VW Transporter

A Dutch municipally came to EV Europe for the conversion of their fleet of VW Transporters, type T5, and T6. Once again, they developed an own standardized conversion kit that allowed for the replacement of the combustion engine for a 250 Nm AC e-motor. All of the CAN communication is powered by the e-car-box, which enables the dashboard to function as it always used to. The city is happy with its renewed VWs, using them regularly - also for hauling heavy loads.

An EV Future: The VW T1

Staying in the VW family, EV Europe also worked on creating a 100% electric version of their prized VW T1 bus. The end result is a valid symbol of sustainability and circularity that is being used throughout the Netherlands for (public) transportation purposes. Dubbed the kombiSOL, it is not just powered by an electric battery, and it also boasts extra isolation using hemp - which is carbon negative - and has five flexible solar panels on its roof, meant to power the optional kitchenette and mobile office. A project that shows the true potential of electric conversion.

Why Electric Vehicles Matter

beertje van Beers, WhatsOrb, Hans van der Broek

Electric vehicles are not just an excellent conversation starter or a fun gadget. Instead, they can play a vital role in reducing our carbon footprint in the world. And while you may think that you drive a car with a combustion engine will not have a real impact - it does. If all of us could transition to electric driving, there would be one less thing to worry about. Especially now that EV Europe is showing us how this can be achieved without purchasing a brand new car, there is no excuse for why you should not.
