Once a small, noisy car with a tiny engine, now a small, quiet car with a powerful motor.
ZEV Garage transforms cars to custom fully electric vehicles. Each vehicle is meticulously transformed by hand and transformation will make sure that the old donor car will not lose its originality and can always be turned to original factory state car without any visible acknowledgment about its former transformation.
Unlike gasmobiles, EVs get the best extended range when just driving around town. Driving at higher hIghway speeds for extended distance generally reduces range by 10-20%.
The transformation begins with the 100% electric powertrain, then select proprietary modifications complete the ZEV Garage performance package.

What’s the payment schedule?
A nonrefundable 5000 euros holding deposit reserves your place in the ZEV Garage production schedule. 50% of the total project is due when scheduled project work begins. This allows us to order and line up specific parts required to begin the build. If your purchase of a vehicle is involved, payment is made separately, to the seller.
If I order a ZEV Garage custom, how long until delivery?
We will estimate a start date for your project to begin based on the current waiting list. The timetable varies. Delivery will occur generally no more than 4-5 months after work on your retrofit begins. Sometimes less.
After my production order and initial payment, how will I track progress on the car?
Once your vehicle customization begins, you will be updated every 30 days. You will receive digital photos of work accomplished to date. Your vehicle will be built strictly according to your original working agreement’s build sheet. If at some point along the way you decide to extend the scope of the original project with additional options, billing will occur in advance for any pre-approved labor and/or material costs exceeding the initial project estimate.
1965 VW 1200 fully converted to 356 Speedster replica EV race car.
Would you consider buying a 356 that spends no time at gas stations? How big would its battery pack need to be? Would you require a more modern rear suspension? What about the motor?
Gearheads who grew up in the 1980s and 90s likely had a poster of the Ferrari Testarossa on their bedroom wall. “We carefully listened to the car’s needs and desires,” Officine Fioravanti said. “We patiently took care of every single aspect. Few minor details have been changed in terms of style, without compromising a timeless design but enriching its pureness.” Well the Testarossa is about to go electric.
Commonly nicknamed “Kopeyka” (for the smallest Soviet coin), the VAZ-2102 from 1985, is a compact sedan car produced by the Soviet manufacturer AvtoVAZ. The car was a heavily modified and licence-built version of the lightweight Italian Fiat 124, which had won the 1967 European Car of the Year.
From zero to the hundres in seconds. Flash back to 1973 in this sweet T2, minted with a 21st century electric awe.

ГАЗ-М20 Победа (Victory) was a passenger car produced in the Soviet Union by GAZ. This Pobeda reached 50 km/h (31 mph) in 12 seconds. It had improved build quality, ruggedness and durability, good fuel consumption and on-road performance, especially on poor roads. Well, that all was changed in 2004.
ZEV Garage`s personalization ensures that each machine can be as sportingly focused, luxuriously flamboyant, or as simple and understated as desired. Indeed, we expect every built and modified machine to represent and reflect the unique tastes and perspectives of its owner, whether targeted at regular use on the road or ultimate performance on road and track.
We are not connected in any way with any car manyfacturer. The car names are used here for descriptive purposes only.
We do not imply that any ZEV Garage product is the product of another car manufacturer. ZEV Garage is not and never will be a factory assembly-line operation.
We’re not out to change anything, just to make it work better. Technologies are evolved all the time, design can be preserved. Zev Garage is essentially the best of those both.
Once your car lands in our shop, we’ll go over every nut and bolt to ensure that anything requiring even a tiny amount of attention is noted. We’ll review the modifications and upgrades included in the basic ZEV Garage build with you, and identify additional options you may have in mind. All costs will be reviewed and approved by you prior to any work on your behalf. Required build and delivery time varies.
