TURN-Electric – just do it!

TURN-E is the abbreviation of TURN-ELECTRIC, which is the baseline and spirit of the company. Recycle-Reuse – That‘s the 21st century. Vintage cars and boats meet modern drive technology. Circular economy is following nature‘s design. Nature is forever. As for the electric drive – you have to feel it to believe it. Experience raw power, acceleration, wind, waves, the street…
With a broad smile on your face, you’ll ask yourself, now why didn‘t I TURN-Electric sooner!

ARISTON – Legacy, the next Step

To create the RIVA brand Carlo Riva revolutionized the way wooden boats were built. Up-to-date technology of the time was used to make it happen. American made V8 motors propelled the boats to new levels of performance. What would Carlo Riva use today as the paradigm shift to electric drive is in full swing? We believe he would stay true to his creativity and embrace new technology to make his boats even better. The Ariston electric is the attempt to do just that. Take the legacy to the next step. > Get in contact

Lightweight Composite Chassis

Cars have been made from steel and aluminium for over 100 years. Its time to think of new ways to speed up production and reduce the costs. As proof of concept we built a prototype of a composite light weight chassis with no tooling required. This one is for a 356 Speedster replica, but any vehicle especially commercial ones are a perfect application too.


Since we started out in 2009 converting Smart ForTwo cars, we learned a lot on the journey. The fun part really is to stay hungry and curious. We question the status quo of electric cars, boats, energy production and storage. We also offer advisory service and consultancy to others so they can turn their ideas electric too.
