AVT offers this basic kit to convert the classic old style rear engined VW Beetle to electric drive. Performance will be in keeping with the age of the vehicle but you can expect to achieve speeds of around 50 mph, more if you choose the higher power motor and controller upgrade options. The standard kit and all options include regenerative braking. This kit is also suitable for the conversion of many VW Beetle based cars including buggies and kit cars.

We offer the kit with various options and you can choose to buy the batteries with the kit or separately. We suggest you choose between lead acid batteries for a range of around 20 and 40 miles, and lithium for around 50 to 80 miles, both depending on driving conditions. You can upgrade from lead to lithium later if you choose.Storage of the batteries, and the parts required to install them, is flexible so you can choose which type and size of batteries you wish to fit. We offer a choice of suitable batteries, please see batteries in the parts section of the menu of this website.

Please click the parts for EVs section of the menu for further details of the parts in the kit which include the motor, motor mount bracket, controller with control wiring, cabling, DC-DC converter, charger, motor to gearbox adaptor plate, and your choice of motor to gearbox shaft drive adaptor: Option 1, is a fixed drive coupling for driving in one gear only and Option 2, is a light weight flywheel for easy gear-changing with the clutch.

We offer the following kit upgrade options: A more powerful controller for use with the standard motor for more acceleration; a higher power, a more powerful controller for speeds up to around 60mph and the higher power motor with a higher power controller for speeds around 70 mph.
