"Like a brand new Beetle that handles like a sports car with a fuel bill in the single digits."
– Bold Ride

Most Zelectrics are built to order. 

So it's rare for us to have any standing inventory. When we have select vehicles that are currently in-house and ready for rebuild commission, you'll find them here. Once in a blue moon, we may have a completely retrofitted Zelectric that's turnkey-ready for delivery. 

Sedans start at $75,000 complete, with additional custom-ordered upgrades available. Build time currently runs 4-6 months from the time work begins.

For a full list of candidates for the Zelectric rebuild other than the classic Beetle, click here. Our focus is on producing turnkey vehicles, but If you already own a perfect candidate in prime condition, a Zelectric retrofit is possible. The base price for the client-owned Beetle rebuild is $56,000. Or, if you don't already have the VW you've always wanted, we will supply it.

From an investment perspective, the best Zelectric Beetle candidates are models built from 1958 through 1966 or 1967. These years represent the sweet spot - where Beetles offer the best combination of collectibility and drivability. Parts are easily available. Because we never compromise stock appearance, their values continue to climb over time. 

ZelectricBugs are available for customization, ready to be outfitted with client-selected upgrades and options. Each vehicle released for purchase features its own walk around in-depth video and detailed spec listings.

More to come. If you're interested in a specific model that's already sold, we can supply another of the same. Zelectric Beetle, Porsche 356, 911, 912, 914, Microbus, Karmann Ghia, or Thing... whichever model you have in mind, let us know. Email or call Zelectric Motors.
