Placing an Order

Want one sooner rather than later? We may have current inventory of interest.

Please know that we have a waiting list. Check in with us to see when the next build opening will occur. Once a car lands in our shop, custom builds usually run a minimum of 6-8 months. But they can take longer, depending on the number and type of retrofit modifications you select. If your order includes our finding and recommending a car for you, time required will naturally depend on how rare that car is. 
 
The process of having your Zelectric retrofit built starts with a conversation via phone, email or in-person. Whether this involves a car you currently own or having us help find the perfect candidate, we'll review the steps involved. We’ll identify an optimum configuration for your future vehicle, cover the basics and discuss additional upgrades or customizations that best meet your needs. When you’re ready, get in touch.

What's the payment schedule?
A $7,500 holding deposit reserves your place in the Zelectric production schedule. 50% of the total project is due when scheduled project work begins. This allows us to place the order for specific parts required to begin the build. If purchase of a vehicle is involved, payment is made separately, to the seller.

If I order a car from you, how long until delivery?
The timetable varies. Generally no more than 6-8 months after work on your vehicle’s project build begins. Sometimes less. Safety is our main concern. Every detail is checked and rechecked.

After my production order and initial payment, how will I track progress on the car?
Once your vehicle goes into production, you will be updated every 30 days. You will receive digital photos of work accomplished to date, along with billing for any client-approved labor and material costs exceeding the initial deposit. Your vehicle will be built strictly according to your original purchase agreement's build sheet.
