With a founder with twenty years in energy and climate change, it was inevitable that the environment is a key part of our agenda. Our passion is making beautiful cars better, but what we do was not contributing to a cleaner planet we wouldn’t be doing it.
Making a new EV consumes significant volumes of this planet’s natural resources, whether that is metals, minerals or animal products. Electrogenic contributes to the environment by ensuring that historic internal combustion engine cars are ‘re-purposed’ and ‘up-cycled’, hence avoiding the manufacture of a new EV. These classic cars’ environmental footprint has been paid for five times over, given the average life span of a modern car is 10 years. Their ongoing impact on the environment is essentially zero.
In addition, however, we manage our workshop practices and source our components with the environment at the centre of our methodology. Our motors, for example, use new permanent magnets that are manufactured without the use of rare earth elements….but still gain big efficiency advantages.
This approach will continue to underpin our ethos, as we strive for a greener planet.
