Tesla Model S Hearse Debuts

OCT 3 2016 BY STEVEN LOVEDAY 34

Jan Busscher, director of Van der Lans & Busscher Funeral Agency, located in Hague, Holland, turns out to be a very thoughtful man. I guess maybe that comes with the job description. Or maybe he’s just an EV fan. Anyway, thinking of the dearly departed and their last wishes, he has commissioned an electric hearse. Just in case the deceased client was environmentally conscious, or just hoped to have a quieter, emission-free funeral, Busscher is there to save the day.

Busscher hired RemetzCar to make his vision a reality. The Dutch company is known for adding length, and sometimes extra wheels to luxury vehicles. The company specializes in limousines and other special purpose vehicles. For the commissioned hearse project, Remetz added an extra 31.5 inches to a Tesla Model S. The project required initially cutting the beauty in half to make the addition.

The Model S surely sports a stunning facade, fit for a head-turning hearse. It didn’t come at a cheap price with its diamond-encrusted separating window and retractable floor. The hearse only has room for one coffin, with space beneath for additional storage. Not quite sure why we would need room for multiple coffins …

The Tesla Model S is currently on display at the Funeral Exhibition in Gorinchem, Netherlands. The exhibition brings together over 250 exhibitors in the international funeral industry, to share and display their business.

Proof that people are just dying to get into a Tesla.

Hey-Yoo!

@Foo

Stop your killing me:)

Well, then you could get a last ride in a Tesla hearse.
Put it in your will as a last request, along with a note, pinned to you chest:
“Foo did it!”

Funerals. Sex. Death. I’m gonna go out and play.

..In the street?

Some people say the Model S’s styling is reminiscent of Jaguar.

I can’t help but think of Harold’s Jaguar hearse (well, faux hearse) in “Harold and Maude” (1971).

I thought of that as well. That Jag was AWESOME.

@PMPU
+1!!

A truly environmentally conscious person would simply have himself/herself cremated and the ashes returned to the Earth.

A truly environmentally conscious person would feed themselves to piranhas….

Or Bears, Turkey Buzzards, Mountain Lions: whatever your local apex predators happen to be.

Remember: Think Globally, act Locally, and Die Responsibly ™. 😉

You and Foo and a hearse named Boo…

Does it have Ludicrous mode? 🙂

It does in the afterlife…..

It seems unlikely that they cut the Model S in half, considering the battery under the floor.

Just because you cut the car in half doesn’t mean you cut the battery in half…

Cut the car, add the length, put the battery back where it goes.

Doesn’t really seem that difficult.

Thanks for the good chuckle today….lol

Reminds me old Ford Scropio a bit. Also was considered ugly at its time.

I still consider it ugly.

Some things don’t get better with age.

Everyone that drives an ICE hop aboard the Tesla hearse

This seems like it should be included in the article…and now it is, (=

Thanks cmina!

This is weird. Tesla and all other electric cars should be used mainly for those who do daily commute, taxis, fleets, etc and not for these applications where the vehicle is used once a week or once a month.

Please don’t waste an electric car.

In NY you must have a funeral director’s license to transport a body.
Many funeral directors are like taxi drivers doing hundreds of miles a day. Many funeral homes don’t have hearse’s they call up and rent.

What is the 0-60 of these hearse?

2.5 seconds… from a dead stop.

Will you be here all week?

His act is to die for.

The vehicle type that will carry Musk’s remains to their resting place on Mars.
the ‘Sands of Mars’, similar to “Forest Lawn” on Earth, in scope, frivolity and excess.

Creating a Tesla hearse looks like a major undertaking.

Wonder if it comes with the autopilot for a DIY funeral?

The Summon Feature is great, if you wake up in your coffin and need a ride home…
