Jaguar XK120 Turned Into a Sustainable Electric Car

Jaguar XK120 Turned Into a Sustainable Electric Car

Its starting price of $370,105 means we deal with a more expensive car than any modern Jaguar.

The all-electric Lunaz Jaguar XK120 is the latest creation of Lunaz – the British company that remanufactures and electrifies vehicles. The highlights of this car are sustainability and an electric powertrain, Carbuzz reports.

We must say that the XK120 itself is a highly desirable roadster sports car of great value. Jaguar made it in 1948-1954. Now, in its all-electric guise, it looks a rarity but offers new technologies.

The materials used in the cabin (a nice-looking one, by the way) are made of upcycled marine plastic waste (fishing nets, PET bottles), recycled aluminum, and sustainably sourced wood.

Lunaz says this version of the Jaguar XK120 is 80% eco-cleaner than a similar gasoline-powered model, and the choice of sustainable materials allowed saving seven barrels of dirty crude oil.

The Lunaz Jaguar XK120 is a customer car. Each new vehicle will be built according to exact customer specifications. Technical details have not been unveiled yet, but meanwhile, it is precisely them that we would like to know the most.

Lunaz Group is associated with David Beckham: well, still, he is its investor. The company leads in the electrification of history’s most recognizable and celebrated models of Bentley, Range Rover, Rolls-Royce, and Jaguar. The cars re-engineered by Lunaz have the company’s own proprietary electric powertrain.

Among the vehicles Lunaz has already created, there are EV modifications of the 1961 Bentley Continental Flying Spur, 1961 Rolls-Royce Phantom V, and the Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud.
