Classic car shell, modern content: Kindred turns the Chevrolet 3100 into a Stromer

Like no other category, old US trucks stand for politically incorrect, outdated V8 drives. But there is another way: Thanks to the conversion by Kindred Motorworks, the 70-year-old Chevrolet 3100 pick-up has a very modern appearance.

The US conversion specialist Kindred Motorworks has already converted some classic car icons to electric drives. The latest hit is the Chevrolet 3100 pick-up, built between 1947 and 1953, which Kindred has given a powerful electric drive and an all-round modernization. The Californian restomod specialist offers the optically old e-truck for sale at prices starting at the equivalent of around 155,000 euros.

The most important innovation is an electric drive on the rear axle with an output of 219 kW/298 hp. Power comes from a 74 kWh battery, which allows a range of up to 320 kilometers. There is a small fuel filler flap in the rear fender, behind which the charging socket is hidden.

The onboard charger can handle up to 6.6 kW. A quick charge option is not provided. Therefore, you need a lot of patience when charging: It takes about nine hours at a level 2 charging station until the battery is full again.

Many components of the 3100 have been replaced with modern components. The vehicle stands on 17-inch wheels with a retro look, which are equipped with disc brakes all round. The equipment also includes LED lights, power steering, electric parking brake, keyless system, air conditioning and heating for the leather-covered bench. The cockpit offers classic round instruments that display specific information about the electric drive. Finally, in the center of the dashboard is a touchscreen for the infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple Carplay connectivity.

The 3100's cargo bed features a water-resistant wooden floor with aluminum locking rails. There is a socket in the side wall of the loading area, which can be used to supply electrical devices with 120 volt household electricity with up to 1000 watts of power.
