DUTCH TEAM BUILDS ELECTRIC SHOOTING BRAKE
-Developed by Niels van Roij Design, London
-High quality coach-building by renowned coach-builder RemetzCar
-Commissioned by a Dutch shooting brake collectioneur
-Limited series of 20 units planned
-Launch planned for 1st week of March 2018
A high profile Dutch coachbuilding and design team recently started production of a full electric shooting brake, based on the Tesla Model S. The project has been commissioned a year ago by Dutch collectioneur Floris de Raadt, who is an avid fan of shooting brakes and has owned several one-of-a-kind shooting brakes. He is also an early adopter of full electric driving since 2008. Dutch designer Niels van Roij, who runs an independent automotive design firm in the United Kingdom, developed several options for the conversions, focusing on premium design combined with limited conversion costs: thus making coachbuilding available for a larger group of connoisseurs. However, fully bespoke interiors and various exclusive options are possible upon request. Coachbuilder RemetzCar started production of the first unit recently; the final car will be revealed in the first week of March, 2018. Order books for the shooting brake are open and deposits are taken.
