Lovebus wins 3 Wavetrophies

  • By ivovandenbrink

The Lovebus was very succesful in the 8 day Wavetrophy through Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Joost drove with his family during the last 3 days and won 3 trophies: one on ‘most comfortable electric car’, one for ‘most attractive electric car’ and a trophy for not making it until the end. Heartbreaking: the bus broke down 500m before the finish line, in Seebodenalp on mount Rigi. During the steep hairpin bends one of the axles flopped out of the transmission: an old school problem of the oldtimer Volkswagen. Easy to repair once at home, but frustrating to the bone while you’re in the moment. Joost had a wonderful rally in his bus though, and it made a stunning impression in every city it entered.

This oldtimer Porsche does the Tesla range in style

  • By ivovandenbrink

Take a look at this beauty: a converted oldtimer Porsche. Built from the ground up with a plastic kit and converted with a 100kW drive train and 70kWh battery. This beauty does the Tesla range, over 400km, in style.

The drivetrain is highly customizable: coaxial drives powered by one or two motors up to an electric all wheel drive will satisfy your every need in AC propulsion. Pick from a range of 100kW to 4 x 150kW to suit your wish for maximum driving performance. Regenerative braking, traction control and torque vectoring included. Do you like the 550 Spyder better? This body can be placed on the same chassis. Great!

The assembly of the kit-car and the conversion to electric is done by our friends from TURN–E from Germany. The batteries are assembled at the facility of Europe‘s biggest battery supplier, Batterie Montage Zentrum, BMZ.

Electric Überbug hits Furkapass

  • By ivovandenbrink

The 8 day Wavetrophy from Stuttgart to Zürich went over the Furkapass today. And the electric Überbug from Rebbl made it! The Curtis controller got a little hot, but with a little extra cooling from the permafrost all went very smooth. Take a look at the breathtaking scenery.
