Comedian Jack Whitehall has presented a new video which explains how clean-technology firm Lunaz creates upcycled electric vehicles.

Lunaz restores passenger and industrial vehicles that have reached the end of life, replacing their internal combustion engine with a clean-air electric powertrain.

The firm said its ‘unique approach, which leverages the world’s existing car park of more than two billion vehicles, saves millions of tonnes in embedded carbon and reclaims billions of pounds in lost economic value’ compared with replacing old vehicles with new ones.

Jack Whitehall joined the company through his green impact fund.

He said: ‘I’m proud to explain vehicle upcycling in this film to spread the word about the power of this innovative process, which supports the necessary switch from polluting vehicles to clean-air alternatives.’
