It's always amazing when something timeless is given a modern update and that's exactly what the folks over at Zelectric Motors are doing with VW Bugs as they retrofit the vehicles to be completely powered by electricity.
Focused on quality and craftsmanship, Zelectric Motors has created the ZelectricBug, which is currently in the final testing phases and likely to be ready for purchase come summer 2013. What sets the company apart from other manufacturers out there is the repurposing of classic cars into lean, mean, electric machines that can go upwards of 80mph.
As soon as I encountered Zelectric Motors, I fell in love. The VW Bug is a true icon and seeing it be transformed into a vehicle for the 21st century is beyond exciting. For more information, head on over to the Zelectric Motors website.
