Everrati Automotive Limited has added an electric version of the Land Rover Series IIA to its EV lineup.
Incorporating a brand-new EV powertrain, uniquely designed and developed at Everrati’s base in Upper Heyford, Oxfordshire, the company’s expert team of specialists work together to meticulously restore the Series IIA body and chassis, which has been sourced for both its originality and exemplary condition, pairing the fully rebuilt vehicle with an advanced electric powertrain.
Land Rovers are synonymous with ruggedness and dependability, therefore maintaining the structural integrity of the electrified Series IIA forms the foundation of Everrati’s restoration process, the company says. Once each component has been removed from the donor car, including all bodywork, powertrain and interior parts, the car’s chassis and bulkhead are galvanized and coated in a protective zinc process to prevent future corrosion from the elements.
Everrati’s electrified Series IIA is available in both modern canvas or traditional canvas soft-tops and safari hard-top formats. The wheels have been upgraded and are available in a range of colors, and all are fitted with Michelin tires.
The 60kWh battery pack features advanced battery management and temperature control. The power output of 150bhp and 300Nm of torque reinvigorates the car’s original character, says the company.
Coupled with a range of up to 125 miles, the electric Series IIA offers both two- and four-wheel-drive modes, as well as hi/low ranges for optimized traction and dynamic ability, dependent on the driving environment.
The cabin has also been redefined and subtly upgraded to modern standards with a host of new additions. Heated front seats are trimmed in leather, and leather continues through to the rear bench seats, featuring front and rear lap belts for all passengers that can be heated.
