ECD’s EV2 Drivetrain Revolutionizes Off-Road Luxury

ECD Auto Design (ECD), recognized globally for its bespoke restorations of Land Rover Defenders, Range Rover Classics, and Jaguar E-Types, unveils the prowess of its EV2 drivetrain system in rugged terrains. The firm aims to elevate the capabilities of its EV Defenders with features tailored for extreme conditions.

Why It Matters

Electric vehicles (EVs) have long been associated with city commutes, but ECD’s advancements challenge this narrative. As CTO and co-founder of ECD, Elliot Humble, puts it: “EVs can do it all. Project Margaux demonstrates that our EV2 system can match, and sometimes surpass, the capabilities of a traditional V8 engine.” This transformation signifies a paradigm shift where EVs no longer have limitations in challenging environments.
