Kindred Motorworks recently showed off its latest creation, the Kindred Chevy 3100 pickup truck - a late 40s-50s era truck with an electric drivetrain. Interested buyers will need to wait a couple of years and can expect to pay at least $159,000.

Kindred used Chevy 3100 models built from 1947 to 1953 and packed in a 294hp direct drive electric AC motor electric powertrain. The 74 kWh battery provides a 200-mile range - with a 6.6 kW on-board charger with 120v and 240v support. Charge time with a level-2 charger will take nine hours.

The interior features a bench seat with custom leather upholstery with headrests and center seating. There is an EV-specific style gauge cluster, a touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay support, and a wireless charging dock. Overall, the exterior also underwent a full restoration, so Kindred put in the effort to refurbish the old school truck.

Features such as four-wheel power disc brakes, LED lighting, wishbone front suspension, and other additions help provide a modern ride on the classic pickup.

Production of the Kindred Chevy 3100 is scheduled to begin sometime in 2024.

Acquiring older vehicle frames or classic cars to restore and customize isn't a new activity - but the expansion of electric drivetrains could be a game changer. Some of these classic frames that clearly wouldn't be efficient with a traditional engine can now be brought back to life with electrification.
