Freedom Convert. Be one too.

YES! The answer is yes Freedom Won© is standing by to do an electric conversion for you too on the vehicle of your choice.

Perhaps your household is in the fortunate position to have more than one motorcar. The next time then when you're thinking of selling/upgrading one of your fuel guzzlers, you could electrify it instead and join the forerunners in pioneering a breakaway to electrified 'freedom'...

Of course we do appreciate that the conversion cost is a major consideration... however if you do the maths you will see that you save more money in petrol than it costs to pay back a loan for the conversion cost! Especially if you have a larger vehicle and you drive a lot. We have saved just over R100k in fuel and services already in the first two years while driving our own EV (zero servicing cost) - Freedom 1. So that was a R100k of the R250k conversion cost already recouped.

Believe us, owning and driving an electric conversion is truly the most inspiring and electrifying experience!

Electricity in full motion... now you too can always run on empty.

The buyer may bring the desired car to convert to us. We will then set about the custom design of the conversion, procurement of components followed by the installation. Your conversion will take one month, kicking off after a three month lead time on motor and battery orders.

An average conversion varies between R250 000 - R350 000 (excl. VAT), excluding the donor vehicle and requires a 80% deposit. The final cost is dependent on the range, power requirements and type of vehicle selected for the conversion.

Other Forward Thinkers have already chosen to plug into our current future:

Believe it - it’s Pure Electric!

Since Friday, 9 December 2011 @ 20h05, Team-Freedom Won© has been driving our prototype electric car conversion to work, shops, restaurants, friends and family!

We are thrilled to report that after almost four years all systems are performing according to our high standards for reliability, safety and operability.

110 000kms/0 litres!

The vehicle selected for our first electric conversion was a Jeep Grand Cherokee with uprated suspension, which easily handles the 200kg net weight increase of the conversion - enter Freedom1©.

Our electric conversion is a five seater SUV with a motor capable of delivering 80kW continuously, with 600Nm of torque available, a practical 170km range between charges and is comfortable with a 120km/h highway driving.

The motor is a robust air cooled six pole three phase magnet motor, designed for heavy duty applications and ultimate efficiency. It is driven by a sophisticated microprocessor controlled variable speed inverter drive, capable of efficiently providing strong but smooth torque delivery through the motor speed range. The system includes regenerative braking for maximum efficiency and range.

The Freedom1 drive design consists of the motor connected directly to the transfer case via a short drive shaft, driving the front (optional) and rear wheels through the original axle differentials.

The 600V DC battery pack design is made up from a number of large format high performance lithium ion cells, produced by one of the world's leading lithium cell manufacturers. The vehicle is fitted with an on-board charger that connects at home or office to a simple custom installed high power charging supply, capable of charging a fully discharged battery pack within 6 hours. For everywhere else the vehicle can also be charged in 6-8 hours using an ordinary 16A 230V household socket.

EVs (electric vehicles) require almost zero maintenance andFreedom1©'s operating costs amount to a fraction of its ICE (internal combustion engine) counterparts.

Freedom1’s Vital Statistics...

  • Motor Power - 80 kW
  • Motor Torque - 600Nm
