A Technology Driven Restoration
Smarter. More reliable. Cost effective. Blueprint, our proprietary technology application, lets us improve every part of the restoration process. Blueprint, along with our engineering experts and standardized technology platform, helps Kindred to create classic cars with modern technology.
Committed to Electric Vehicles
At Kindred we believe EV’s improved reliability, lower maintenance and sustainability result in vintage cars superior to the originals.
EV Conversion Design
Kindred aims for a minimum range of 200 miles – enough for 99% of daily car trips. This requires creative engineering from Kindred and our partners on battery pack configuration and mounting systems.
WEIGHT DISTRIBUTION IS A SIGNIFICANT DETERMINANT OF VEHICLE SAFETY AND DRIVABILITY. KINDRED PAYS CLOSE ATTENTION TO BATTERY PLACEMENT WHICH ALLOWS US TO PRODUCE MODERN CLASSIC CARS WITH A LOWER CENTER OF GRAVITY, BETTER HANDLING AND IMPROVED SAFETY.
Our electric drivetrain replaces under-powered, inefficient and polluting gasoline engines. Our electric vehicle platform is optimized for increased performance, range, low maintenance and fast charging. Kindred also incorporates the latest EV safety equipment into all of our vehicles.
Electric Powertrain Design
CONVERTING VINTAGE CARS TO ELECTRIC REQUIRES ENTIRELY NEW COMPUTER DRIVEN CONTROLS FOR HEATING, COOLING AND INSTRUMENTATION SYSTEMS. OUR KINDRED EV CONTROL SYSTEM PROVIDES THE TECHNOLOGY INFRASTRUCTURE NEEDED IN THE VEHICLE TO BRING THESE SYSTEMS TO LIFE.
