Autel Energy showcases classic car to EV conversion at CES

In addition to a suite of EV charging solutions, Autel Energy will be showcasing an electrified 1969 Ford Bronco.

Converting classic cars into electric vehicles promises to be a huge market. EV charging manufacturer Autel Energy says it has taken notice and is showcasing an electrified classic 1969 Ford Bronco in its booth at CES.

CES showgoers can see the $350,000 all-electric classic Ford Bronco restoration in Autel Energy’s exhibit (Booth 7119) in the West Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center from Jan. 5-8. The 1969 Bronco was customized from the ground up by Los Angeles-based Zero Labs Automotive, an automotive and industrial design, technology and engineering firm specializing in electric vehicle conversions.

“As the country transitions to electric vehicles, we wanted to show that embracing the future doesn’t mean that you have to give up the past,” said John Thomas, chief operating officer of Autel Energy. “We’re always innovating and love to partner with companies who share a passion for performance, and we’re proud to be partnering with Zero Labs to showcase this vintage vehicle at CES, blending tradition with technology.”

The custom Bronco SUV features a carbon fiber body and has been fully electrified with a 600-horsepower, dual-motor propulsion system featuring a 100-kWh battery and 235-plus miles of all-electric range.
