The Swind E Classic Mini combines a fully-restored body and bespoke powertrain developed in-house by industry leaders Swindon Powertrain, specialists that have been providing engineering expertise to automotive and motorsports industries for over 40 years.
Produced in Wiltshire at the firm’s recently-upgraded facility, the Swind E Classic Mini instils all the affection of the original with state-of-the-art EV technology to create an individual, nippy, zero-emissions city car with character.
While retaining the same look, proportions and spirit of the original Mini, the bespoke 80kw motor and single transmission ensures responsive and smooth power that can be used without incurring congestion charge fees.
The power output is equivalent to 110bhp and gives it a 0-60mph time of 9.2 sec and maximum 80mph and without a petrol tank the boot space rises to 200 litres.
Standard equipment includes USB ports, underfloor heating, heated leather seats and screens and it recharges from flat in four hours but a fast charge option can be specified. Available to order immediately, the limited production run of 100 cars starts at £79,000 and comes with an unlimited mileage one-year warranty and MOT.
