Momoa, who also starred in Game of Thrones, has done it because he is passionate about cars and the environment.

The conversion has been carried out by British EV technology company, Electrogenic

Momoa, 44, said: “In order to pull off this dream project, I had to find the right partner.

“I needed a team that would appreciate the storied history of this car while updating its technology.

“Electrogenic is all about honouring vintage cars. Making them electric without losing any of the vehicle’s character.

“They were the perfect fit.”

The transformation features in his TV series, On The Roam.
