Mini joins the EV restomod craze with reversible conversions


During the past few years, there’s been a flurry of electrified classic vehicle unveilings from newly launched independent firms, such as Lunaz, Electric Classic Cars, and Electrogenic, as well as an array from automotive giants.

The latest carmaker that’s putting an electric motor into a classic model is Mini.

Meet the Mini Recharged

The idea was born when the brand showcased a one-off classic Mini Electric at the New York Autoshow back in 2018. 

According to the company, the reactions were so positive that now a team of engineers at MINI’s Oxford plant have devised an EV conversion package for the iconic hatchback to create the Mini Recharged — available to customers who own a classic Mini.
