Two of the world’s premier technology companies converting classic cars into electric vehicles – Zero EV based out of Bristol in the UK and Jaunt Motors from Melbourne — have merged to create Fellten.
The new company is now the world’s leading electric conversion systems manufacturer with a presence across three continents. Unveiled at the SEMA show in Las Vegas, the new company is scaling up to meet exponential global demand, establish a facility in North America and continue to lead the industry in quality, safety, reliability, and volume, as well as electric conversion training programs for the automotive industry.
Fellten (Welsh for lightning) designs, engineers, and manufactures bolt-in systems to convert classic cars into electric vehicles.
The merger gives the new company an international supply chain that allows automotive workshops and vehicle restorers across Australia, North America, and Europe to install electric conversion systems designed and developed by Fellten’s world-class team.
Fellten’s electric systems with original equipment manufacturer (OEM) levels of performance and reliability enable cars of any era to be a ‘daily driver’ and not just an enthusiast’s car. Fellten-powered vehicles are re-fitted to improve safety, handling, comfort, usability and performance, and sustainability, all without sacrificing the classic style of the car.
Fellten has engineered systems for various classic brands and models, starting with Porsche 911s, Classic Minis, and Land Rover Series and Defenders, with more electrification solutions for more classic brands and models coming.
Alongside the electric conversion technology, Fellten has developed City & Guilds-approved training programs. Leaders in up-skilling staff in working with electric vehicles, systems installation, and maintenance for bulk purchases, their team has trained a number of high-profile clients to date, including leading Universities, major Hollywood studios, and other film industry specialists and OEM garage technicians and mechanics across Europe and North America.
The merging of the two autotech leaders will allow Fellten to establish a global presence and build new partnerships with international motoring partners.
