A delivery VW Beetle converted to electricity present at SVEM

Ingenext the engineering division of Simon André Electric Vehicle in Trois-Rivières will present the 1967 Volkswagen Beetle designed for Rôtisserie St-Hubert at the Montreal Electric Vehicle Show at the Olympic Stadium.

The Trois-Rivères firm has achieved a technical feat: converting an old Beetle from gasoline to electricity. This was a tailor-made order for the St-Hubert restaurant chain, which will use it as a promotional vehicle to mark its 70th anniversary.

An electric motor has been grafted to this Beetle, its power has also been increased tenfold from 40 to 280 horsepower. “Putting a Tesla motor is a first. Also with a Volt battery. It's a unique project, ”commented Guillaume André, from the company Ingenext.

A model of the vehicle, reduced to parts, was found in an old barn in northern Montreal. It has been completely rebuilt; bodywork, wheels, brakes. An intelligent car management system has been added. “The challenge was first to put a battery and an electric motor and to respect the weight. To also respect the identity of the car and really it looks like a Beetle from the 60s. ”The vehicle will travel the roads of Quebec and will also make deliveries as part of this anniversary.
