  7. A British company pushes...

[YesAuto Wonderful Car Life] As the promotion of new energy vehicles is increasing year by year, in the past few years, more than a dozen cities, regions and countries around the world have announced plans to stop selling traditional fuel vehicles before 2025. Although how to implement this plan is still unknown, it is believed that more and more quiet electric vehicles will appear around us in the near future…

There are always some people who cannot give up their feelings for traditional fuel vehicles. How can they make up for this regret? The British company Lunaz Design came up with a solution for these sentimental people, which is to convert classic fuel vehicles into electric vehicles. However, this is not the first case of electrification of a classic old car. Both MINI and Jaguar have done this.

The first time to get involved in this modification business was to convert a 1953 Jaguar XK120 and a 1961 Rolls-Royce Phantom into electric vehicles. The company uses modular powertrains to ensure that the modification business it undertakes in the future can be widely used in any vehicle model. The power output of the electric motor ranges from 135 horsepower to 590 horsepower, which can meet the needs of customers.

Lunaz Design did not announce more details about the powertrain, but claimed that the shortest cruising range is about 250 miles (about 420 kilometers). However, the threshold for Kindness's modification business is not low. In addition to customers who need to provide classic old cars, they also need to pay Lunaz Design a modification fee starting at 350,000 pounds (about 3.167 million yuan).

Lunaz Design said that transforming classic old cars into electric cars will not damage their appearance and interior. The electrification of these old cars has been redesigned, and the installation will not destroy the original style of the whole car. The battery pack is placed in the trunk, and the instrument panel of the original car has to be replaced with the instrument equipped with the electric car, and some modern configurations such as Bluetooth and touch screen will be added.

David Lorenz, the founder of Lunaz Design, is a loyal fan of classic old cars. He is worried that if fuel vehicles are banned from the road because they do not comply with emission regulations and electric vehicles dominate the world, our descendants may not be able to see these classics on the road. car. The idea of transforming old cars into electric vehicles is to maximize the opportunity for these old cars to continue to ride on the road.

Also as a classic car enthusiast, I really can’t bear to see these old guys changing their “hearts” in order to keep their lives. When they start, the pure gasoline smell is the most fascinating. It’s an era. Feel the smell. I have to say that after being transformed into electric vehicles, these classic old cars will lose some driving pleasure, after all, the rapid speed acceleration does not belong to them. Having said that, in the modification case announced by Lunaz Design, we can see a 1967 Shelby GT500 “Eleanor” and a Jaguar E-Type. (The picture comes from Li Haopeng, the home of the network car
