KUALA LUMPUR: Rolls-Royce has long talked about its wish to produce a battery-electric vehicle, but an aftermarket supplier took the lead in electrifying Rolls-Royce cars.

The U.K.-based company already has Jaguar and Bentley electrified classic cars in its portfolio.

The 1961 Rolls-Royce Phantom V has undergone the Lunaz reengineering process, which comprises ground-up restoration and the incorporation of the brand’s proprietary electric powertrain and a full suite of software and hardware upgrades.
