Zero Labs Automotive Unveils Next Generation EV Restomods

Key Takeaways

  • Zero Labs has announced its latest EV conversion kits, boasting 600-horsepower, improved road performance, and fast charging.
  • EV restomods are gaining popularity, with Vintage Broncos and Porsches common choices.
  • Zero Labs also plans B2B conversion opportunities as a part of its business plan.

Zero Labs has announced the newest generation of its classic electric vehicle platform called Generation IV. The company is based in Los Angeles, California and has been producing high-quality EV restomods for years. Its focus is climate change awareness and informing the public of the benefits of electric vehicles.

EV restomods are becoming increasingly popular, with vintage Broncos and Porsches popular targets for such efforts. While some deride the practice as sacrilege, others, like Zero Labs, believe it’s one of the most effective ways of keeping beloved older vehicles on the roads indefinitely.

Generation IV

While the company has been delivering EV conversions since 2021, it showed off its skills to the world last year at the Consumer Electronics Show with a 600-horsepower Ford Bronco conversion. That vehicle boasted up to 235 miles of range, showcasing the upcoming Gen IV technology.

After fine-tuning, the company says it’s finally perfected the technology for roll out to customers in a conversion kit that severely cuts down on the year-long timeframe of previous conversions. Gen IV features a standard 600-hp dual-motor configuration with 235+ miles of range thanks to 85 or 100kWh battery packs.

Rebuilt frames, upgraded independent front and rear suspensions, and Level 3 DC fast charging are now standard, along with upgrades to the interior that modernize the experience while staying true to the original design. Lastly, these new vehicles offer ride height control and improved road performance, giving you more confidence whether you’re on the pavement or in the dirt.

The company says it has four primary formats: SUVs, Pickup Trucks, Muscle Cars, and 2-Door Coupes. Many models are supported, including the International Scout, Ford F250, and Jeep Wagoneer for various model years.

Individual Conversions Are Just The Start

While it wants individual customers to opt for conversions, it’s also working on B2B opportunities that could see it developing technology for startup OEMs, along with private and federal fleets. It’s a wildly complicated process, so companies with these unique skills are becoming highly valued. There’s a lot of opportunity out there for conversion companies to flourish.
