"Much like the classic cars it converts, Jaunt Motors is about to undergo a
transformation. Today it has announced a merger with Zero EV to become the
biggest EV conversion manufacturer in the world.
The Melbourne-based Jaunt Motors has made a name for itself by converting
beautiful old-school 4WD into fully electric vehicles. The startup was founded
by Marteen Burger and Dave Budge due to their love of 4WDs and passion for
encouraging EV uptake in Australia.
Now it will enter the next phase of its road trip with the Bristol-based Zero
EV to become Fellten. Rather poetically, the name is Welsh for lightning. The
news was announced at the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show in
Las Vegas on Tuesday.
While Jaunt Motors catered largely for the consumer market, Zero EV has a focus
on producing electric conversion OEM parts for B2B and supply chain support.
The company will operate across three continents, allowing for exponential
growth and an international supply chain. Automotive workshops and vehicle
restorers across Australia, Europe and North America will be able to use the
Fellten electric conversion system to upgrade classic cars to EVs."
