Everrati Automotive Limited, the technology company specialising in the redefining and futureproofing of automotive icons through the integration of cutting-edge electric vehicle (EV) powertrains, has completed final winter testing of its first US commissioned Land Rover Series.
While the new vehicle will spend most of its life in a much more temperate area of North America, it has been fully signed-off by Everrati’s expert engineering team as part of an intensive cold weather programme in Vermont, New England, further underlining the company’s application of OEM-grade standards to the design, engineering, and quality of its products.
Over recent months, the first US commissioned Series IIA has undergone a rigorous validation programme, covering all components, with particular focus paid to the performance and reliability of its state-of-the-art OEM-grade electric powertrain. Encompassing high altitudes and cold weather, such as snow and extreme low temperatures, Everrati’s team ensured high-voltage reliability and tested charging functionality. Alongside hot weather testing, the team has now validated the vehicle for all climates.
Meticulously redefined as a cutting-edge EV, offering a unique blend of heritage, luxury and sustainability, every Series IIA commission is first fully restored from the ground up, with Everrati then integrating its own e-powertrain, designed, and developed at its global headquarters in Upper Heyford, Oxfordshire, England. The result is a fully futureproofed vehicle fit for the 21st century which can drive in near silence and emission-free in any city across the globe.
Completing cold weather test in the US is the latest example of how Everrati is setting new standards, its Series IIA already passing electric vehicle safety testing in 2022, achieving UN-ECE R100.01 at the Netherlands Vehicle Authority – RDW, the only electrified classic of its type to do so in the world.
“Our redefined Land Rover Series IIA combines a complete restoration with the integration of our proprietary OEM-level electric powertrain, preserving the vehicle’s legacy and enabling it to be enjoyed by generations to come,” said Justin Lunny, Co-Founder and CEO of Everrati. “I can’t wait for us to hand over this first US customer commission to its new owner, who can be sure they are receiving the ultimate in redefined icons.”
With a 60kWh battery and 150bhp and 300 Nm from its electric motors, Everrati’s Land Rover Series IIA offers both two-wheel drive and four-wheel drive modes and a range of up to 150 miles, almost identical to its combustion-engined past, combined with regenerative braking, AC and DC fast charging capability. The company now offers its Land Rover Series builds both 88” and 109”, and multiple roof configurations.
Combined with the very latest in sustainable luxury materials, including the world’s lowest carbon leather for the automotive industry from leading leather manufacturer, Bridge of Weir, it further highlights Everrati’s overall mission for sustainable luxury.
