Chevrolet 3100 Truck EV: Classic Pickup Converted to Zero Emissions Electric Version

California-based design team Kindred Motorworks, who specialize in injecting next-gen technology into vintage cars, have transformed the classic Chevrolet 3100 Truck into a pure electric pickup truck.


Kindred technicians chose to equip the vehicle with a 74 kWh battery and an electric motor that provides 294 horsepower and replaces the original internal combustion engine of the Chevrolet 3100.

The battery is equipped with a module kit from the well-known American battery manufacturer KORE Power and a 6.6kW built-in charging system that supports 120V and 240V charging.

According to Kindred, the Chevrolet 3100 Truck EV takes about nine hours to fully recharge using the Level 2 charging system and can travel up to 200 miles (320 Km) on a single charge.
