Norwegian engineer Jan Erik Naley converted a Tesla Model S into a hearse,
and it’s on sale for over $200,000 online.

Photos of Naley’s creation can be found on the Finn posting as well as on
the website for his business, Karmoy Bilsenter:

Are you thinking about buying a Tesla, but you wish the electric automaker’s
vehicles had more of a … funereal aesthetic?

If so — or, if you’re a Norwegian funeral director looking to save money on
gas — then you might want to check out a new listing in Norway for a Tesla
Model S that’s been converted into a hearse. A posting on the Norwegian
classified ads website Finn lists a 2018 Tesla Model S sedan that’s been
converted into an all-electric hearse, complete with an extended rear cabin
large enough to fit a casket.

The Tesla hearse, which is currently listed for sale for 1.99 million
Swedish Krona (the equivalent of about $208,000 USD), was built by a
50-year-old Norwegian man named Jan Erik Naley, according to the Finn
posting. Naley told a Norwegian auto website that the electric vehicle is
actually the fourth Tesla he’s converted into a hearse, and he already sold
the previous three versions.

(For a price comparison, in the U.S., the website SpecialtyHearse.com sells
used hearses like a 2018 Lincoln Federal Hearse, for up to $85,900, while a
custom-built hearse from the likes of Rosewood Classic Coaches in Arkansas
will reportedly cost up to $105,000.)

Naley says he’s spent several years converting all types of cars into
hearses for local funeral homes, including hearses made from Mercedes-Benz
and Cadillac SUVs. Two Norwegian funeral homes asked him about converting an
electric Tesla into a hearse, he says, and the first one he designed took
two years to complete. Naley adds that he works with an auto factory in the
Netherlands to construct the vehicles.

Much of the work comes from cutting the car in half and extending it by more
than 31 inches in length (to ensure there is room for a casket) while adding
a wagon roof and rear door that opens into a totally remodeled interior. The
inside walls of the Tesla hearse are heavily padded to accommodate the
cargo, and the retractable interior floor can be extended out of the rear
door to form a platform for loading a casket.

Naley is mostly focused on selling his electric hearses in Norway, he tells
the local auto website, though he’s received interest from prospective
buyers in other countries, as well. “It is mainly the Norwegian market I
focus on. Then we will see what happens afterwards,” he says. “But I have
already received requests for Tesla deliveries to both Finland and Iceland.”

Previously, a Dutch limousine company called RemetzCar has built and sold
Tesla cars converted into hearses [
]. And, in June, YouTube star Simone Giertz posted a video showing how she
and a group of engineers converted a Tesla Model 3 sedan into a pickup
truck. Meanwhile, Tesla CEO Elon Musk has been promising that a Tesla pickup
is in the works and could be unveiled this year.
