Funeral processions are serious, somber moments and, for many people, are planned to represent and reflect something about the way they lived. Unfortunately for people who were passionate about nature, environmental activism, or just the latest in automotive technology, however, there’s hasn’t really been a way to reflect that passion in the hearse that took them on their last ride. That is, until now. Meet the all electric Tesla Hearse.
No, Elon Musk isn’t getting into the hearse business– although, with all the digging equipment he has over at the Boring Company it might not be a bad idea– instead, this Tesla Model S based hearse was make by a vehicle upfitter in Norway named Jan Erik Naley. Naley’s been turning upscale luxury sedans into hearses and other specialty vehicles for years, and the car shown here is just the latest in a growing stable of clean, efficient vehicles repurposed to serve a number of its community’s needs– not “just” commuting. He’s done an incredible job with the fit and finish of the car, using rich materials refined to a high polish. You can see all of that craftsmanship for yourself in the photo gallery Naley provided, below (click to enlarge).
There’s one thing you should probably keep in mind as you scroll through the pictures, though, and that’s the fact that craftsmanship like this doesn’t come cheap. Heck, the Tesla Model S the vehicle is based on wasn’t all that cheap to begin with, either– so it might not come as a surprise to hear that a vehicle like this will run
you your funeral parlor a cool $207,000 (SEK 1,999,000). And, before you leave a comment about that price, consider that Naley’s already built three (3) of them!
What do you guys think? Would a funeral parlor have a better chance of earning your business if they could ensure that your last ride was clean and green, or is something like this a step too far? Check out the photo gallery, below, then let us know what you’d like to take your last ride in in the comments section at the bottom of the page. Enjoy!
