David Beckham is a big supporter of electric automobiles and has put a lot of money into the electrification of antique cars.
DAVID BECKHAM has invested in an electric car firm based in the United Kingdom that specializes in restoring antique cars.
As he makes baby steps into the automobile business, the former England star is thought to have purchased a 10% share in Lunaz. At the company’s Silverstone factory, the footballer was pictured getting to grips with electric car technology.
He not only looked at the various electric models, but he also tried his hand at plugging in an electric charger.
“Lunaz embodies the very best of British brilliance in both technology and design,” added Mr Beckham.
“I was drawn to the company because of their work upcycling and electrifying some of the most gorgeous old cars.
“David Lorenz and his team of world-class engineers are doing something truly unique, and I am excited to be a part of their further success.”
After converting a number of the world’s most valuable sports vehicles to electric powertrains, Lunaz received great acclaim.
Classic Rolls Royce, Range Rover, Bentley, and Jaguar cars were the firm’s major focus.
The firm’s recent investment, on the other hand, has resulted in accelerated expansion ambitions, with an emphasis on the electrification of the industrial sector.
In the UK, the EU, and the United States, this will need modernizing HGV vehicles such as trash trucks.
According to them, the new electrification procedure might increase the life of vehicles by up to 70%.
According to estimates, there will be roughly two billion conventional automobiles on the road worldwide when the 2030 petrol and diesel car ban takes effect.
According to Lunaz, the bulk of these cars will not be scrapped if they are remanufactured and upcycled through electrification.
The new technique, according to David Lorenz, Founder and CEO of Lunaz, will save firms money.
“Upcycling current passenger, industrial, and commercial vehicles gives a sustainable option to replacing them with new,” he explained.
“In the worldwide drive to decarbonisation, our strategy will save fleet operators money while substantially reducing waste.
“Responsibility and commerciality are no longer mutually exclusive in the global economy, as evidenced by numerous examples.
