The winner will also receive $ 20,000

The American company Omaze will hold an unusual lottery, within which it will compete for the iconic Volkswagen Type 2 minibus of 1966, equipped with a Tesla electric motor. In addition, the winner of the drawing will be awarded $ 20,000 and the new owner will be exempted from paying taxes on the car.

The 54-year-old minibus has been modified by Zelectric. The unusual project is based on the famous Volkswagen Type 2 of 1966, in which, instead of the classic four-cylinder engine, American tuners installed a 100-horsepower Tesla electric motor and a 32 kilowatt-hour battery. The power plant allows the modified van to travel on a single charge up to 136 kilometers at a maximum speed of 160 kilometers per hour.

The batteries can be charged up to 100 percent from a 240-volt network in less than five hours. Also included is a special adapter for replenishing energy from charging stations. In addition, the van is equipped with a recuperation system that allows the batteries to be recharged during braking.

Externally, the electric minibus completely repeats the design of the iconic model. The exception is LED headlights and a wooden roof rack. The van is painted white and green. The salon is made in shades of brown and beige. From the equipment in the minibus, power steering, front disc brakes, as well as a modern audio system, a rear-view camera and USB ports for front and rear passengers appeared.

You can participate in the drawing both free of charge and on the basis of donations. To do this, you need to register on the company’s website and deposit any amount. When you invest money, the chances of winning will increase. Together with the electric van, the new owner will receive $ 20,000. In addition, the organizers promise to cover all costs associated with the delivery of the minibus and paying taxes on the minibus.
