A Bri­tish com­pany is of­fer­ing clas­sic own­ers an al­ter­na­tive that will al­low them to en­ter Lon­don for free.

In our 13 July is­sue we re­ported that clas­sic own­ers would be stung with a £21.50 charge, just for en­ter­ing the cap­i­tal. Elec­tric Clas­sic Cars’ kits could pro­vide a way round zone charges.

Richard Morgan, one of the part­ners in the busi­ness, says: ‘We take iconic clas­sics and con­vert them to be 100% elec­tric. This means they are classed as zero road tax ve­hi­cles and they’re ex­empt from con­ges­tion zone charges.

‘As a rough guide, DIY kits, which in­clude bat­ter­ies, motors, con­trollers and ev­ery­thing you’ll need to con­vert your car to elec­tric, start from £10,000 and fin­ished cars are anything from £20,000 to £50,000.’ Among ECC’s pop­u­lar con­ver­sions is a fully elec­tric clas­sic Volk­swa­gen Bee­tle.
