Classic cars have always been a hit among auto enthusiasts, and that group includes the classic Ford Bronco. California-based startup Zero Labs Automotive decided to create an all-electric version of that iconic vehicle, or to be more specific, it’s a fully restored and re-engineered original Bronco, complete with aerospace grade carbon fiber bodywork, handcrafted walnut / bamboo interior panels, premium leather, a retro-styled digital gauge cluster and more than 1,000 newly-designed parts. Two caveats: it’s expected to cost between $275K – $325K and limited to just 150-units worldwide. Read more for two additional videos, pictures and information.
It’s powered by a 70 kWh lithium-ion battery that is compatible with Level 2 charging feeding a 360 hp permanent magnet AC motor for a driving range of 190 miles on a full charge. The electric motor is paired with a five-speed manual transmission that sends power to a part-time/full-time four-wheel drive system.
“The Bronco’s off-road prowess is further enhanced by the Currie front and rear differentials, an adjustable Fox coil over suspension, and Brembo six-piston caliper brakes. The electric Bronco is also fitted with digital telematics, a digital gauge cluster that sticks to the original design, and CAN network. All vehicle diagnostics and controls are placed behind a hidden screen and can be viewed on the user’s smartphone,” reports Car Scoops.
