 Classic Range Rover 2-Door Gets Tesla EV Power, Hits 0-60 In 5 Seconds
  • The classic Range Rover 2-Door features a custom Tesla battery pack and motor, generating 450 hp for a 0-60 mph time of under 5 seconds.
  • Beyond the electric conversion, the Range Rover receives a comprehensive restoration, interior upgrades with modern amenities, and off-road enhancements.
  • All this comes at a high cost as prices start from $312,000.

You may not have heard of Inverted before but it is one of a growing number of companies offering electric conversions for classic cars. Its latest project is a 1990 Range Rover 2-Door. This may not be the first vehicle you’d think of needing an electric powertrain but it appears to work well.

Sitting in place of the original engine is a custom-made battery pack with Tesla modules and mated to a powerful electric motor, also sourced from Tesla. Generating an impressive 450 hp and 442 lb-ft (600 Nm) of torque, this motor propels the hefty Range Rover to 60 mph (96 km/h) in less than 5 seconds.

In addition to the motor upgrade, Inverted has installed a new gearset and a limited-slip differential, while preserving the four-wheel drive setup.

There’s no word on how big the battery pack is, but Inverted says the Range Rover can travel around 200 miles (320 km) on a charge. It features a CCS charging port that supports speeds of up to 75 kW, allowing the battery to be charged from 20% to 80% in 38 minutes. Other important upgrades include adjustable Fox shocks and upgraded Alcon brakes.

The off-roader has also received a comprehensive restoration. Inverted stripped the vehicle down to its bare metal body and then thoroughly upgraded the interior. It has fitted new leather and heated front seats, a revised dashboard, and an Alcantara headliner.

The Range Rover now features Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility via a revamped infotainment display, along with an upgraded audio system. Additionally, it boasts an electric air conditioning and heating system, heated rear seats, cruise control, and a bench seat on the tailgate.

A retrolicious dark green coat has been applied to the exterior of the 4×4. Notably, Inverted’s EV conversion was executed without any structural alterations, allowing for a potential reversion to a combustion engine setup if desired by the owner.

We seriously doubt that customers would want to undo all the changes of the electromodded Range Rover though, because as awesome as it may be, it isn’t cheap, priced at an eye-watering $312,000.
