References: electrical conversions by eCap

With well over 100 conversion projects, we are very proud of the references shown here of vehicles and projects that were converted to electric drives. We would like to introduce some of the projects to you in more detail at this point, more projects can be found in a gallery view further down the page. Please contact us if you would like to find out more about a specific project shown here.

Optimas paving machine

The built-in electric motor has an output of 14/23 kW and allows a top speed of 14 km / h. For best performance in operation, eCap has implemented a concept of replaceable batteries. A 15 kWh battery charge enables continuous operation for approx. 2.5 hours. The challenge was to electrify the vehicle with a 48-V system with easy-to-replace lithium-ion batteries for continuous operation of the vehicle. (Case study, PDF)

VW T5 "Channel Shuttle"

A 44/80 kW electric motor was installed in the “Channel Shuttle”, which transports passengers and cargo emission-free at up to 140 km/h. With a battery capacity of just over 32.6 kWh, the T5 drives up to 130 km in daily use and takes around four hours to charge. The “Channel Shuttle” with its eye-catching design is a well-known sight in the south of Hamburg - hardly surprising given that it has now driven more than 40,000 electrically powered kilometres.

DeLorean DMC-12

The 35/60 kW electric motor requested by the customer accelerates the DeLorean to an impressive 200 km/h. Batteries with a total capacity of 42 kWh were installed in the DeLorean for a range of approx. 200 km. When placing the battery capacity in the DeLorean, attention was paid to ideal weight distribution in order to improve the focus properties compared to the original for the benefit of performance.

VW T2 Bulli

Engine output of 35/60 kW enables the Bulli to reach a top speed of up to 120 km/h. The battery capacity of 21 kWh requested by the customer allows a range of approx. 100 km. With the accompanying 9 kW charger, the charging time for the Bulli is less than three hours. (Case study, PDF)


With its 13 kW electric motor, the little Holder shows itself to be very quick in acceleration for a tractor and reaches a top speed of 40 km/h. With a battery capacity of 9.2 kWh, the Holder drives up to 50 km and is recharged in approx. 3.5 hours. Even years after its conversion, an electric tractor is unique and ensures astonished looks and open ears when it whizzes past quietly. (Case study, PDF)

Willys Jeep Station Wagon

“The car is just fantastic, you can drive it calmly and comfortably. That is a great result – after all, it is a 70-year-old classic car. Thank you for the good work and communication during the conversion, for meeting the deadline and budget. "(Customer comment) - Our subtle conversion distributes the 31 kWh battery capacity in the rear and the engine compartment - and the 51 kW electric motor with 220 Nm torque provides for fast driving fun.

VW Beetle "Retro"

Our team has equipped the Retro Beetle with a 60 kW asynchronous motor. The top speed of 120 km/h is absolutely sufficient due to the wind noise caused by the car design of that time. According to the customer's wishes, the Beetle with a 16 kWh battery capacity has a range of approx. 100 km. Despite the built-in batteries, part of the trunk in the bow can still be used for e.g. a spare wheel. (Case study, PDF)

Audi 100 Coupé

Engine output of 50/80 kW enables a remarkable top speed of 180 km/h. The built-in battery capacity of 37 kWh ensures a range of approx. 225 km. The batteries are fully recharged within four hours. All relevant parameters of the new electric drive system are displayed on the original dashboard with discreet round instruments that match the original look. (Case study, PDF)

Porsche 996 Convertible

The 44/70 kW motor used accelerates the sports convertible rapidly and delivers a top speed of 180 km/h. The selected battery configuration of 23 kWh corresponds to a range of approx. 120 km and thus more than meets the customer's requirements. Even at a second glance, the Porsche can hardly be distinguished from the standard combustion model. (Case study, PDF)
