Classic EV convertor Kindred announces partnership with Kore
US-based electric vehicle conversion specialist Kindred Motorworks has agreed with KORE Power for the supply of battery modules for its EV classic models.
Kindred has selected KORE Power’s VDA 355 format battery modules for their compact size, and integrated sensors for voltage and temperature monitoring.
Rob Howard, CEO of Kindred, said: ‘KORE Power’s modules allow us to maximize driving range for our customers without having to make any design compromises.
‘Our team performed extensive testing with different battery systems and KORE Power’s form factor, performance, and proven safety set them apart from the rest. This agreement locks in our battery supply for the next several years of vehicle production and we hope to further expand this relationship as we grow.’
The first vehicles to use the KORE Power modules will be Kindred’s VW Bus and 3100 pick-up truck.
Lindsay Gorrill, CEO of KORE Power, said: ‘Using KORE Power cells to electrify Kindred’s vintage vehicles merges modern technology and classic style with an undeniable swagger.’
