The company Ian Motion has decided to give a second life to the classic cars and especially the Mini by offering a very elegant electric conversion of the legendary Austin Mini.
To demonstrate their know-how, a small and light vehicle was needed to achieve maximum efficiency.
Therefore they chose a 1989 Austin Mini, once the body restored, an electric powertrain with a range of 150km has been fitted. No information on its specs sheet but the Ian Motion Mini is announced with performances superior to the original.
Inside, craftsmanship is honored with the work of a stylist and a upholsterer, pure materials highlighting the interior design of the legendary Mini, gray fabric for the instrument panel , a solid oak dashboard and black leather seats. A work done in the respect of the brand's heritage with a touch of modernism, perfect!
No price announced but the opening of the order book is planned for the end of 2017!
Conversion initiatives around the world are frequent (see our category Green Classic
) but more rare in France see: electric Mehari and electric 2CV
We particularly welcome and like this new initiative!
