Â· Electrogenic develops and installs technology to convert historic and classic vehicles to 100% electric drive.Â Electrogenicâ€™s aim is always to retain the character of the cars they convert, making them a better version of themselves.
Â· Conversion to electric enables some historic vehicles to contribute to a sustainable future.Â It also makes them accessible to a new generation by being easy to maintain and to drive.
Â· Bicester Heritage is now the UKâ€™s only hub for historic motoring excellence, home to more than 45 specialist businesses
Bicester Heritage is pleased to welcome Electrogenic, specialists in converting classic cars into 100% electric models, at its unique â€˜motoring-marinaâ€™. As a leading setting for classic car collectors and enthusiasts in the UK, Bicester Heritage provides the perfect backdrop against which the brand can celebrate motoring and sustainability using 21^st century technology.
Dreamt up during the construction of a 60MW biomass power plant in a Cuban hurricane, Electrogenic revolutionises the beauty and joy of classic vehicles through electrification. Based out of the recently reactivated Building 118 at the centre of the vibrant site, Electrogenic will provide a new skill base to the Heritage campus, in addition to using the onsite track for testing and development opportunities.
Furthermore, Electrogenic will be a welcome events presence to the Bicester Heritage events calendar, with opportunities to showcase their range of current conversion projects including a beautiful CitroÃ«n DS, a Porsche 356 and an E-Type Jaguar. The company is an excellent addition to the broader Bicester Motion site, on which Bicester Heritage sits, which is planned to become a leading destination for mobility technology and experience, past, present and future.
Steve Drummond, Founder and Director of Electrogenic, comments: â€œWe are delighted to bring our electric conversion technology to be part of the Bicester Heritage specialist hub. Electrogenicâ€™s aim is always to preserve the spirit of the original vehicle, retaining gear-changes and the original instrument clusters, while adapting the drive train to the modern environment.Â Our classic vehicle-centred technology continuously evolves, which is why Bicester provides the perfect setting for our business to grow in.â€???
Dan Geoghegan, CEO, Bicester Heritage adds: â€œThe motoring industry is changing at a rapid rate, and Electrogenic are a firm that very much have their finger on the pulse when it comes to super-charging the future of our much-loved classic car industry. We are looking forward to welcoming them on site and witnessing the magic of their conversion projects.â€???

Bicester Heritage has created a revolution in historic vehicle ownership. Founded in 2013 Bicester Heritage has gone from a standing start to a home for 45 specialist businesses, and growing, with a collective turnover of over Â£50m, making it the largest player in the industry and set to grow exponentially with a global reach.Â
The unique ecosystem of businesses based at the beautiful 444-acre former WW2 RAF Bomber Training Station acts as â€˜marina-likeâ€™ cluster, promoting skills and expertise, employment, qualified customer footfall, shared business incubation and aggregate growth. The site is all about driving the future of the past.
The former RAF Bicester site on which Bicester Heritage is now based, is of national historic importance. Neglected for the best part of 40 years, it was added to Historic Englandâ€™s â€˜At Risk Registerâ€™ in 2008 and designated the most 'at risk' of all Defence Estates in the UK.Â
Since Bicester Heritageâ€™s tenure, over 95% of the buildings have been delicately restored or re-activated for modern business use, with the site now held as a national exemplar of constructive conservation by Historic England. The time-warp base is truly unmatched in evocative character and an active airfield and test track complete its dynamic operation.Â
Bicester Heritage is a component part of Bicester Motion, an incomparable visitor attraction which will offer an authentic collection of dynamic and inclusive visitor experiences, less than an hour from London.
