, a leading UK builder of electric classic cars, has announced the first tranche of electric classic Range Rovers. The company, which is based in Silverstone, will build an initial run of 50 of the luxury SUVs — built in the ‘classic era’ between 1970 and 1994.
Since unveiling Jaguar, Bentley and Rolls-Royce electrified classics, Lunaz has been ‘consistently asked’ by its global customer base to apply its re-engineering and restoration skills to these Range Rovers, which will be offered in both ‘Town’ and ‘Country’ specification, as well as both standard and long wheelbase versions.
Every car by Lunaz goes through a full bare-metal restoration and re-engineering process ahead of conversion to the company’s proprietary electric powertrain.
Design director Jen Holloway and her team will work closely with customers to tailor the car to their exact requirements. Material palettes that ‘honour the textile interior that debuted on the original classic Range Rover’ will be offered, as will more traditional upholstery options.
Usability is further enhanced with the inclusion of a full suite of contemporary technologies, with features including infotainment, air conditioning and entertainment screens ‘sensitively integrated’ into the existing design scheme to ensure the spirit of the original car is maintained.
Prices for classic electric Range Rovers by Lunaz start at £245,000, excluding local taxes. The first production tranche of 50 vehicles is currently being allocated with first customer deliveries anticipated for the summer of 2021.
Every car by Lunaz represents an individual customer build, and customers will be invited to work with Ms Holloway and her team to specify features to ‘augment their own lifestyle requirements’.
