Lunaz, a company specialising in producing electric versions of classic cars, announced that they are developing electric Range Rovers built in the 1970s, after receiving overwhelming response since they unveiled the electrified Jaguars, Bentleys, and Rolls-Royces.
The company, based in Silverstone, England will create an initial run of 50 of the luxury SUVs built in the ‘classic era’ between 1970 and 1994.
In response to feedback from these customers, electric classic Range Rovers by Lunaz will be offered in both ‘Town’ and ‘Country’ specification, with a full suite of features that augment a full electric classic off-roading experience for the first time.
The models will also be presented with increased focus on rear-seat and driver comfort, reflecting their dual use as either self-driven luxury vehicles or chauffeured cars. These cars will be available in both standard and long wheelbase.
According to Lunaz, every car will go through a full bare metal restoration and re-engineering process ahead of conversion to the company’s proprietary electric powertrain. This approach allows Lunaz to answer the questions of usability and reliability that detract from the experience of owning the most celebrated classic cars in the world
Within the cabin, the pure utility of the original interior design will be significantly elevated. This will be achieved by applying Lunaz’ design philosophy. This approach balances the integration of technology and usability within a classic architecture. It is executed with the highest quality materials from a palette that responds to traditional and contemporary tastes and lifestyles.
Material palettes that honour the textile interior that debuted on the original classic Range Rover will be offered as well as more traditional upholstery options executed in the very finest leathers and woods. Customers will be able to select from either the classic three-door configuration or the four-door models.
Usability is further enhanced with the inclusion of a full suite of contemporary technologies. Features including infotainment, air conditioning and entertainment screens are 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. This provides extraordinary scope for personalisation. Customers will be invited to work with Design Director Jen Holloway and her team to specify features to augment their own lifestyle requirements.
The ‘Country Specification’ could include modifications to storage areas or a boot space for the transportation of equipment and refreshments for field sports. For ‘Town’ cars, the creation of a bar area for rear-seat chauffeured occupants can be tailored to the customer’s favourite choice of beverage.
