About The Show
Vintage Voltage follows Richard “Moggy” Morgan and his team of electric car experts as they convert and restore classic cars into electric power.
They are global leaders in electrifying classic cars including everything from Porsches to Land-Rovers. But they face a huge challenge as they re-engineer classic cars with 21st century power and technology while keeping the looks and appeal of the original.
With some cars more than 50 years old it's never going to be easy...

Vintage Voltage Series 1
A 60s style icon gets the speed to match its looks
The VW Karmann Ghia looks beautiful, but it never went as fast as it looked. Now Moggy and his team have been asked to convert it to electric power, but can they give it the performance it deserves without ruining the classic driving experience?
The perfect classic city car
Moggy and his team struggle to find space inside a tiny Fiat 500 as they try and turn it into a perfect electric city car. Will the speedy owner be happy with her dream electric classic car?
Land Rover Defender
The first electric four wheel drive
Four wheel drive cars are big and heavy, with complex drive systems. Perhaps that’s why so few people have tackled an electric conversion. Attempting to update a 20th century icon like a Land Rover Defender, with it’s low tech under-pinnings, means the team need to re-imagine almost every aspect of the mechanicals. Can they find a way of giving the car maximum power and range, while keeping its four wheel drive capability?
Prototype for the future
The boss of Chesil Sportscars brings a stunning 50’s styled Speedster to the workshop to discuss creating a prototype for a new electric model. It’s a huge business opportunity for Moggy, but the pressure’s on, they need to get it right first time…
Back to the future
This BMW’s owner wants to leave a legacy for the future and create an electric homage to the famous 2002 Turbo, so the next generation get to see why this wild saloon was dubbed ‘the ultimate driving machine’.
First ever motorbike conversion
Moggy and the team are used to four wheels, so when a commission comes in to create a retro style bike with a 21st century electric twist, they simply can’t resist! But have the team bitten off more than they can chew when a Royal Enfield donor bike arrives at the workshop?
Ferrari 308 GTS
More horses in the prancing horse stable
A Ferrari that’s had it’s engine stolen provides the perfect opportunity for Moggy and his team to convert their second 308 GTS. But converting a classic Ferrari to electric power is contentious…especially when the goal is to make it go faster, brake harder and handle better than the original.
The rallying legend is electrified
A Lancia Fulvia arrives at the workshop, but can Moggy and his team convert this much loved classic, without ruining its famously agile handling?
The ultimate Midget restoration
The team work on a 1960s MG Midget which quickly turns into a bigger restoration project than expected. A much-loved part of the family, it’s now time for the ultimate restoration and everything is upgraded from the electric motor, to the suspension and brakes.
Ugly duckling transforms
The brief is to design the car that Porsche would have constructed if they’d been building electric sports cars in the 1970s. The 914 was never a popular car, due to its unusual styling and modest power, but it always had a lot of potential. Can Moggy and his team pull out all the stops and create the ultimate electric Porsche 914?
