Electric 'crate motor' turns any classic into an EV

A new plug-and-play 'crate motor' promises to turn essentially any car into an electric vehicle. The market for electrified classic vehicles is growing, thanks to cars like the Jaguar E-Type Zero and the Aston Martin DB5 EV that starred at the 2018 Royal Wedding. Homemade conversions with repurposed Tesla batteries are also becoming increasingly common. Swindon Powertrain wants to make it easier for low-volume manufacturers to create electric versions of classic, rare, and unique vehicles.
