As part of its relocation to a new UK facility in Brighouse, West Yorkshire, Electra has announced it will be offering a new service to upcycle internal combustion engined vehicles to battery electric.

The new product development by Electra comes in the wake of the failure of Lunaz Applied Technologies, which went into administration in March, and the business is on the look out for new talent: “We’re constantly on the lookout for bright minds who resonate with our vision for a sustainable future powered by electric transportation,” says Benjamin, Managing Director at Electra. “We eagerly anticipate welcoming new team members who will play a pivotal role in shaping the future of the commercial ev industry.”

Electra had signalled its intent to move in to a new facility in an interview with our sister brand Motor Transport back in December last year and the new site will offer the company the opportunity to increase its capacity, drive further product innovation and facilitate a new dedicated training facility. 

“We’re embarking on an exciting new chapter for Electra Commercial Vehicles,” adds Smith. ”Our new Brighouse facility equips us with the space and resources essential not just for streamlining operations, but also promotes our dynamic culture and expertise that fuels collaboration and innovation. This relocation underscores dedication and hard work of our exceptional team, positioning us perfectly to catapult our growth trajectory.”
