Win a Classic VW Camper Van with Tesla Powertrain

A salvaged Tesla powertrain is now powering a classic 1966 VW Microbus for people who want to combine nostalgia with their electric van life, and fancy a flutter on winning one in a raffle. Enter from anywhere in the world for as little as $14.

For those that love the classic look, Zelectric has converted a 1966 VW Microbus to electric propulsion, and the revamped van is valued at around $150,000. Unfortunately, they could only fit 32 kWh of Tesla modules inside the vehicle - limiting the range to about 85 miles. So, if you want a longer range electric VW van, you are going to have to wait for the ID.Buzz in 2022.
