Bavarian Econs – Auto-Motor specializes in the electric conversion of classic BMWs

The battery-electric conversion of the Bavarian Econs workshop is still in the development phase, as the new company, which specializes in classic BMWs, wants to provide customers with the driving experience expected of the brand, and this still requires some fine-tuning. The first prototype immediately gets the tuning parts of the time, i.e. it wears an extended body and wide rims, the camouflage can be used to discover motifs referring to electric transport and Bavaria.

Much work has been done to ensure that analog instruments that match the original show the digital signs of modern technology, the conversion being so unusual that they do not mount the drive motor on the transmission, but place it on the rear axle. Power of 163 hp and 170 Nm, which is enough for 6.2 seconds of acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h, no battery capacity has been reported, just 180 km of available range, and the 400V high-voltage system can be charged with up to 50 kW of lightning to feed. The price of the conversion of the Bavarian Econs BMW 02 will be determined individually, as there is a good chance that the half-century-old car, which is the starting point, will have to be worked on in order to incorporate the battery-electric drive.
