Annual Metropolia University of Applied Sciences Innovation Event

MINNOfest Teknologia 15

Technology Event/Fair in Messukeskus Expo & Convention Center, 



October 6-8, 2015

Because E-Drive Retro partnered with Metropolia University’s Automotive Engineering Faculty in creating our first development platform (our remarkable 1972 Triumph GT6-EV), it was only logical for the University to request our presence at their annual engineering innovation show. Based on our huge crowd-appeal at the September Tesla Club event,  Metropolia dedicated the prime location in their large display at this Tech Expo to E-Drive Retro and again, we displayed both our “Before and After EV Conversion” Twin GT6’s for thousands to admire and learn about in-person.

Press and University Blog coverage was immediate and more partnering and networking opportunities were opened as a result.


e-Drive Retro replaces a vintage vehicle’s complete fossil fuel drivetrain with a robust Nordic-engineered plug-in electric drivetrain featuring a proprietary control and communications system that delivers an exhilarating and authentic driving experience, which can be enjoyed reliably with minimal maintenance.
