Crazy News What’s a Teslonda?

What’s a Teslonda?

We at Motor Illustrated love cars; hopefully that’s obvious by now… What we also love is creativity and doing things because you can and want, not because you have to do it or that it’s the right thing to do.

Case in point: the Teslonda Accord.

This, my friends, is the brainchild of someone who not only has way too much time on their hands, but oozes talent and creativity. The gist of this project is the guys at HSR Motors dropped the body of a 1st generation Honda Accord on top of a Tesla drivetrain.

As you can plainly see in the video, the gasser-looking Accord moves like the wind. According to HSR, they managed a 2.7-second 0-60 mph (96 km/h) time in very cold weather. They know they can do better…

This may very well be the way of the future if we want to keep our old cars on the road… I’d love for my 1973 VW 412 to be a 9-second 100% electric car!
