Car for the Refined people

Wouldn’t it be nice to drive a unique classic car on a daily basis? There is now a garage that makes this wish come true by converting classic cars from petrol power to fully electric while also adding some nice creature comforts, resulting in a classic car that can be driven anywhere.

Manual gearboxes are no longer needed and become automatics. Bodies are restored right down to the nuts and bolts and heated leather seats are installed. We confidently recommend our conversions to people who are concerned about the maintenance and trouble of owning classic cars.


What is an EV conversion ?

An “EV conversion” or “converted EV” refers to a car that has had its petrol system fully removed (engine, exhaust system, and fuel tank) replaced by a fully electric system (electric motor and battery).


The Abigail EV Mini

At Abigail motors, our primary work is on Rover Mini. We have succeeded in converting the globally loved classic Mini into a fully electric car that emits no carbon dioxide when being operated.


Making people smile

Whether you are traveling to your destination or enjoying a drive, the one thing that always remains the same is the smile that spontaneously spills out when you take the wheel. The Abigail EV Mini is like a lovely pet, with the power to foster smiley communication in society, not only with the people in the car, but also when parked or just passing by.

Going for decades

Another new way to enjoy this well-loved classic Mini for decades to come. The removed engine can also be kept securely. The craftsmanship and the latest technology coexist at a time, now is the time for you, the first penguin, to make a choice.

The eco-car tax reduction

The motor vehicle tax on cars over 13 years old since the registration, will rise 15%, but an Abigail EV Mini receives the Eco-car tax reduction bringing this tax to less than half. (Abigail EV Mini 10,000 yen, 2004 and older Mini 25,200 yen)

Compliance & Liability

Lithium-ion batteries are approved by the Ministry of Transport after passing stringent tests against overcharging and undercharging in accordance with UN Regulation R100. The power consumption is comparable to that of the latest EVs from bigger manufacturers.
