Drop-Top Electric Range Rover Delivers Silent Off-Road Bliss

Electric Vehicles / 4 Comments

And that interior looks every bit of $300,000.

Almost two years ago, a British company called Lunaz announced it would build electric versions of the classic Range Rover. Initial production was limited to 50 units priced at around $326,524 (converted from British pounds) and Lunaz must have had no trouble selling out because it has just announced two new versions, the Country and the Town.

Let's start with the Country, pictured below in Maya Blue. This drop-top Land Rover Range Rover packs 360 all-electric horsepower and 450 pound-feet of torque going out to all-wheel-drive. That's significantly more than the original V8 produced. To help bring all that juice to a stop, Lunaz equipped the Country with six-piston front and four-piston rear brakes with a regeneration function to gather electricity into the battery.

Inside, the Lunaz build looks far more bespoke than we've seen from other companies that perform EV swaps. The dashboard looks sleek and modern with custom switches and controls surrounded by wood trim. At the back there is seating for six with a gorgeous Mocca Walnut floor. Each one built will be completely bespoke, and Lunaz says one customer has already requested a Country with the brown color from Octopussy while another asked for a built-in NFT casting screen.

Around 70% of customers will opt for the Town, based on a long-wheelbase Range Rover. This model prioritizes interior comfort over off-road ability and open-top driving. This particular example is painted in a bright coral with a black contrast roof.

The interior features modern amenities including a six-inch infotainment screen with Apple CarPlay, 1,300-watt audio system, heated and cooled cup holders, wireless charging pad, and a refrigerator. There's even a watch winder built-in. Each build takes around 50,00 hours to complete, so don't expect a small price tag.

Lunaz charges £245,000 (around $286,000) to start, though custom touch will likely bring the cost even higher. Order books are open now with deliveries scheduled for the second quarter of 2023. Lunaz is also responsible for EV swapping other British classics like the Aston Martin DB6 and Jaguar XK120.
