The Carice TC2: Exploring the Electric Transformation of the Classic Sports Car


Introducing the Carice TC2 Classic Electric Sports Car




In the enthralled world of classic car enthusiasts, the scene is as vintage as the sleek curves of the cars they adore—adorned with an unyielding passion for nostalgia that turns every engine’s purr into a symphony. Enter Carice, a Dutch marque that has taken this nostalgia to new heights with its electric sports car, the TC2. It doesn’t just echo the golden days of automotive royalty; it revolutionizes it.




The TC2: An Ode to Timeless Design

The Carice TC2 is more than just another electric sports car; it’s a carefully handcrafted vision to reflect the essence of classic automotive design. Designed with the Netherlands as the backdrop and synergy with the classic car aesthetic as the muse, the TC2 celebrates metal and electricity. It nods to car models that once ruled the roads and garage floors with graceful lines and effervescent charm.


Again, the TC2 has been handcrafted from the ground up, and each vehicle currently takes about a year to complete. Yes, you read that right—this small electric sports car fully represents a vehicle with superior attention to detail. The company hopes to improve upon this by fine-tuning its manufacturing processes and increasing production to 10 vehicles per month. The entire process is completed by 8 to 10 people in a facility just outside of Amsterdam.


The TC2 doesn’t rely on a loud, roaring engine to make a statement; it speaks through its design. With a familiar and fresh silhouette, this electric dream boasts the elegant profile of a timeless classic fused with advanced eco-conscious technology. The marriage of bygone beauty and modern efficiency is seamless, each contour telling a story of design innovation and an unwavering commitment to heritage.


Carice’s Automotive Symphony

Rooted in automotive design with a plot that thickens with each wheel turned, Carice’s history is one of passion, innovation, and design excellence. The brand name itself is a play on the Dutch word ‘Karosserie,’ which echoes the craftsmanship Carice infuses into each of its vehicles. The team at Carice, a company founded in 2011, are not just engineers or designers; I think it is fair to call them artists who bring the sketches of their dreams to life.


Tell Us the Details

So, what does this small electric sports car have to offer? Starting with a rear-wheel drive powertrain and 56hp power, the TC2 has an electronically limited top speed of 75mph. There are two battery options, including a driving range of 200km (124 miles). You can opt for the larger battery and extend your range to 300km (186 miles). A fully depleted battery can be charged to 80% within 2.7 hours. You will find the charging cable hidden away in the trunk or boot of this car.




You won’t find a distracting dash as everything is laid out with a return to yesteryear. Here, you will find switches instead of buttons.



Instead of digital displays, you will find analog displays with circular stainless steel surrounding them.



Expanding the Carice Canvas

From unveiling new color options reminiscent of a classic era to testing new materials that assure a lighter, more agile drive, the brand consistently raises the bar.



The Carice TC2 classic electric sports car is not just a static showpiece destined to collect dust in a garage; it’s a living, breathing testament to Carice’s promise to its patrons. The brand’s commitment to navigating unchartered territories while remaining rooted in its design philosophy is a balancing act that Carice achieves with grace and poise.


The Reception and Rise of the TC2

It’s not uncommon for revolutions to be met with a mix of awe and skepticism, and the reception of the TC2 has been no different. The classic car community is a spirited bunch — full of purists with an unyielding love for the crackle and pop of vintage combustion engines. In the face of this, the TC2 emerges not as an adversary to tradition but as a torchbearer of it.


Enthusiasts have found solace in that TC2 doesn’t seek to erase history; it aspires to preserve it in its own way. The sleek silver bullets and ebony chariots that once set hearts racing haven’t been forgotten; they’ve been reimagined. For many, TC2 is not just an innovation; it’s an evolution.


Tailored for the True Believers

For Carice, the TC2 represents an extension of the family and an offering to the patron saints of the automotive realm. With an understanding that their creation must not be exclusive to a privileged few, the brand has made it a mission to share the joy of the TC2 with as many enthusiasts as possible. Events that celebrate the presence of the TC2 are not just showcases; they are community gatherings.


Those eager to experience the TC2 need not fret that the price tag is unattainable. I was expecting a price tag to exceed $100,000 due mainly to the hand-stitching of the vegan leather strewn about this car’s interior. I was pleasantly surprised to see a palatable 44,500 Euros (49,200 USD). This is almost unheard of with a custom car like this. Carice has diligently worked to ensure this modern classic is available to those who wish to feel the wheel in their hands and the road beneath their feet. Their commitment to providing an experience, not just a product, has resonated with the community they aim to serve.





In Conclusion: A Relentless Pursuit of Elegance

For the purveyors of potent memories and the keepers of automotive aristocracy, Carice stands as a beacon of unflinching allegiance to the past, peppered with a mighty splash of future-forward fervor. The Carice TC2 classic electric sports car, with its lithe frame and lively spirit, is poised to scribe a new chapter in the annals of car history.


I invite you to join the pilgrimage, immerse yourself in a world where nostalgia dances with innovation, and partake in an experience that promises a ride and a revelation. Just don’t expect to get one of these cars in a very timely fashion. I can only imagine the backlog this company has started to garner.


In any case, I welcome you to engage with Carice and seek out the TC2. In classic cars, every mile is a memory, and every drive declares love for the timeless.
