"The Beetle is transformed from a smoky, outdated, air-cooled flat-four-cylinder to a sleek, modern electric."
 – NY Daily News


Was your first car a VW Bug? If so, you're not alone. In that case, maybe there's a particular year or color that calls to you. Or perhaps you're one of the lucky ones who kept that car, and now you're ready to give it a new super-charged life. (We can do that.)

If you sold your beloved Bug a long time ago, know that there are still some beautifully maintained Beetles out there. But odds are they're not found locally, because they are rare. And increasingly investment-worthy.

Other classic candidates for the Zelectric rebuild are vintage Karmann Ghias, Porsches, VW Things, and iconic Microbuses. 

If you don't already own it, we'll find the perfect vehicle for you. We'll locate North America's best of the best on your behalf and present you with our finds.

Once we've thoroughly investigated and verified the condition of a prospective purchase - including a personal onsite inspection by an automotive expert if called for, we'll help facilitate your transaction. If needed, you will arrange shipping to Zelectric Motors in San Diego, California. 

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 Zelectric 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. 

When it's ready to go, you're welcome to visit our San Diego workspace and put the pedal to the metal with us to take it for a spin.
