This will enable American enthusiasts to convert automotive icons such as the Land Rover Defender and Jaguar E-Type to clean, sustainable electric power.

This is just the start of Electrogenic’s international expansion. The carefully vetted and comprehensively trained installer network will soon grow further. Announcements regarding other territories will follow in the coming weeks and months.

The new installer network will be able to fit the Oxford, UK-based Electrogenic’s range of transformative ‘drop-in’ EV conversion kits. These deliver cutting-edge, proprietary ‘plug and play’ electric drivetrain technology. This technology has underpinned Electrogenic’s sustained growth in recent years to the rapidly growing international market.

Steve Drummond, Electrogenic co-founder, said: “We’re delighted to announce Xerbera and TATC as the first partners in our exclusive installer network and Electrogenic’s initial entry into the US market.

“We’ve been inundated with enquiries from North America since we first revealed the kits which convert automotive icons to sophisticated EV power. We’re delighted to have such fantastic partners serving customers across the pond.

“In TATC and Xerbera we have two partners whose values are very much aligned with ours. They both place quality of workmanship and customer service front and centre in what they do. They also share our broader vision to convert these wonderful, iconic vehicles to run on clean sustainable electricity.”

By leveraging the international network of exclusive partners, Electrogenic will cater to the significant global demand that exists for its highly-innovative EV conversion technology – delivering dynamic, sustainable and reliable electric motoring to a wider audience than ever before – taking the company as a whole to an exciting new era.

Partners with a Shared Passion
Vermont-based TATC, known in North America and beyond for its painstaking ‘nut-and-bolt’ restoration work on Land Rover Defenders, will install Electrogenic’s electrification kits. These will not only be for the much-loved Defender models but also for the Jaguar E-Type and Triumph Stag.

Dallas-headquartered Xerbera is widely respected for its comprehensively re-engineered custom Land Rover builds, as well as its restoration work. They will offer Defender conversion and restoration packages. 

All works will be carried out with Xerbera’s customary quality and attention to detail, creating silent, powerful, go-anywhere Defenders equipped for adventuring in a low-carbon world. The Texas firm will also carry out conversions of Jaguar E-Types, Porsche 911s and other models that become powered by Electrogenic.

Transformative EV Technology Developed in Britain
Electrogenic’s innovative range of kits are produced under the outfit’s recently expanded ‘Powered by Electrogenic’ technology arm. It comprises of options for the Land Rover Defender, Jaguar E-Type, classic Porsche 911 and the Triumph Stag.

Different specifications of batteries and motors cater for a broad range of customer needs and budgets. All the ‘drop-in’ kits are defined by their quality and depth of engineering. 

They are developed in-house by a research and development team comprising leading automotive engineers, programmers and electrical experts, all overseen by formed Arrival Ltd Chief Engineer, Francis Prime.

The ‘plug and play’ powertrain solutions reflect Electrogenic’s approach to developing and manufacturing its own technology. This includes in-house designed software, printed circuit boards (PCBs) and digital dashboards. Plus, bespoke battery management systems and vehicle charging technology. 

The driver interface also gets attention, with sport, eco and traffic modes, as well as a regen-based hill-descent control function for the Land Rover Defender.

Electrogenic’s cleverly packaged ‘drop-in’ kits also use highly innovative mechanical componentry. This includes a unique system for creating high-density battery packs, as well as exceptionally compact in-line and transverse reduction gearboxes. All are manufactured in the UK. 

The neat packaging solutions ensure that for each ‘drop-in’ kit variant, the existing vehicles’ existing structure and architecture are preserved. This approach ensures that all Electrogenic conversions are entirely reversible.

All drop-in kits drive through single-speed, fixed ratio transmissions and are capable of up to 6.6kW AC charging, as well as rapid CCS charging for total convenience.

Drummond concluded: “This announcement marks the start of an exciting new chapter for Electrogenic, as we continue to grow our operation and global footprint – at a time of surging demand for EV conversion technology. 

“We’ll be announcing further partners for other territories in the coming weeks and months, so stay tuned.”
