The “Bay to Birdwood Run”
has announced that starting this year, electric conversion vehicles will be allowed to participate in the rally.
Event organizer Michael Neal
wants to attract over 1,500 classic cars, and hopes to attract ~120,000 people to come to the event.
Many Drivers see it as a
critical change to the event, as well as a necessary change to keep their vehicles on the road for as long as possible
Many who are interested in
electric vehicles are familiar with conversions, however, over the past 10 years they have really gained traction
Some of the first players
in the conversion space include Zelectric Motors and EV4U Custom Conversions, both started in the 2000s
As many countries are now
forcing new vehicles to be fully electric by as soon as 2030, there may come a time when it will either be regulated to convert your vehicle
