Now your final ride can be in a Tesla hearse

For those who are in a hurry to move on to the afterlife.

You might not be able to afford a Tesla Model S, but that doesn’t mean your last earthly ride can’t be in one.

RemetzCar, a dutch limousine company, has taken the bold step of turning the now-iconic electric car and turning into a fully functional, and eco-friendly hearse. 


The host vehicle, a Model S, was chopped and lengthened by over two feet to make room for the large rear compartment. Large windows on the sides and back had to be custom made for the hearse, but the rest of the vehicle is still recognizable as a Tesla, giving the entire package a morose-yet-cool vibe that you don’t normally see when it comes to hearses. 

RemetzCar is planning on showing off the vehicle at the 2016 Funeral Exhibition—yes, apparently that’s a real event—in its home country of the Netherlands this week

The Model S, which debuted in 2012, is considered a luxury vehicle, which makes it fair game for hearse manufacturers, but it’s also an extremely capable performance car, with 0-60 mph times as low as 2.8 seconds. I guess if you’re in a hurry to make it to the next life, that could come in handy.
