About electric mobility

Freedom Convert. Be one too.

Freedom Won© is standing by to do an electric conversion for you too on the vehicles of your choice in your fleet.

The next time you’re thinking of selling/upgrading your fleet’s fuel guzzlers, you could electrify instead and join the forerunners in pioneering a breakaway to electrified freedom.

Whilst we appreciate that costs involved in conversion is a major consideration, however, when doing the calculations, you will quickly realise that you will save more money in petrol than it costs to pay back a loan for your fleet’s conversion costs.

Believe us, owning and driving an electric conversion is truly the most inspiring and electrifying experience!

Electricity in full motion… now your fleet can always run on empty!

Here are the stats (and the facts) 🙂

Freedom1’s (our electric Jeep) energy consumption over the last eight years are as follows:

  • Distance Travelled – 110 000km’s
  • Battery Energy Consumed per km – 0,2kWh
  • Battery Energy Consumed Total – 22 000kWh
  • Energy Used for Charging (95% charger efficiency) – 23 000kWh
  • Cost of Energy (at R1,40 per kWh) – R32 200
  • Energy Cost per km Travelled – R0,29/km
  • Equivalent fuel cost of Petrol Car per km – R2,20/km
  • Equivalent fuel cost of Petrol Car total – R242 000
  • Maintenance Cost of EV – one set of tires (R8 000)
  • Equivalent typical maintenance cost of petrol car – R1,20/km or R132 000
  • Total savings to date – R333 800
  • Original Conversion Cost – R220 000
  • Projected total life of battery pack – 200 000km’s

Above calculations based on indicative average prices on electricity and petrol of the eight year period.

Convert your Fleet

Given the current fluctuations in fuel price, it makes commercial sense to both own and drive an electric conversion.  This coupled with service intervals of more than 50 000 kms where the only work required is merely checking the batteries, tyres, brakes and the window washer fluid add up to massive savings.

… Freedom Won did imagine it and now we’ve successfully engineered it too!

We believe that the adoption of the EV can be supported by a focused philosophy of bringing the concept to market without massive upfront investment in mass production plans and heavy reliance on government subsidies. We thus developed the technology to allow easy conversion of conventional fleet cars to electric power using our custom designed conversion model.

Each conversion is different, depending on the vehicle itself, but also on how much performance and range are required by like-minded converts. Freedom Won© is currently capable of converting most fleet vehicles to electric power with electric motors available up to a maximum continuous power of 80kW. Higher power motors will be considered in the future for high-performance EVs.

The Freedom Won concept can be installed into various existing fleet car bodies, at various levels of sophistication, power, and range, depending on requirements and budgets.

Our key company strategy is to demonstrate the viability and long-term benefits and value of driving and owning converted electric vehicle fleets with the long-term vision of a large-scale uptake of the EV concept.

The electric drive conversion concept provides excellent opportunities for niche market penetration, including:

      • Electric game viewing vehicles – offering silent and smooth operation for 4×4’s in on and off-road conditions
      • Mine light vehicles – including mine pit 4×4’s and underground LDVs for mines with drive-in declines
      • Airport Vehicles – including general delivery, apron services, VIP transport and mini shuttle buses
      • Minibus taxi industry – electric taxis will reduce operating costs by up to 80%
      • Agricultural – general farm 4×4 runabouts for farmers looking to reduce their diesel consumption.
