Lunaz, a world-leading maker of restored, re-mastered and electrified classic cars, is increasing production and its workforce to meet the demand for these zero-emissions vehicles. This news comes after the company filled its order books for 2022 and 2023.
The UK company, which builds its vehicles in a state-of-the-art facility in Silverstone, England will also increase production capacity to 110 restored, re-engineered and electrified vehicles every year. This represents a 50 percent in total build-slots versus 2020.
David Lorenz, Lunaz Group founder and CEO, said: “Surging global demand for an electrified and remastered classic car by Lunaz is affirmation that clients are responding to a proposition that preserves the most celebrated cars in British automotive history while answering the pressing global requirement to transition to more sustainable practises.
“We are proud to introduce an entirely new and conscious audience to the pleasures of classic car ownership by answering the key questions of reliability, usability and sustainability.
“We are delighted to further the legacies of these beautiful vehicles in greater numbers in doing so creating highly skilled jobs and economic impact.”
Lunaz is now among UK’s fastest-growing clean-tech companies as global demand surges for pinnacle British electric classic cars. With the anticipated demand for these up-cyclced classic cars, married to the upcoming market introduction of the company’s first industrial vehicle electrification projects, will see the number of employees grow to more than 350 within the next year.
This rapid expansion has been underpinned by significant investment from some of the leading names in British industry. This includes growth funding from the Reuben, Barclay and Dallal families, who joined David Beckham in backing Lunaz.
Lunaz announced in December last year the establishment of Britain’s largest remanufacturing and electrification facility adjacent to its current home opposite the Silverstone Grand Prix circuit. This will take the company’s total production space to 130,000 sq/ft over two sites, making it the largest employer and manufacturer in Silverstone’s world-renowned technology cluster.
Lunaz sells cars in every major global territory and is becoming a major UK export success with significant growth across the US, Europe and the Asia Pacific region. The company makes the world’s first electric Rolls-Royce, Bentley, Aston Martin, Range Rover and Jaguar sportscars, among others.
Jen Holloway, Lunaz Design design director, said: “Our work remastering these most significant automotive icons represents the essential preservation of objects with weight far beyond the sum of their parts as classic cars. We are proud to write new chapters in these most extraordinary legacies.”
