Good news for lovers of classic Ford Broncos: The car is back, and it just got a lot more green (and a lot more luxurious). Electric automotive company Zero Labs recently showed off a souped up sustainable version of the SUV that runs 100 percent on electricity.

Zero Labs’s car, available in a limited edition batch of 150, is based on the 1966-77 model and retains much of the car’s charms including the oversized boxy build, big headlights, and manual gear control. Pretty much everything else is different.

The silvery car is made from carbon fiber and has more than 10,000 original parts, according to Designboom. The inside looks like it was stripped from a minimalist hotel and retrofitted into a car. The car sports walnut or bamboo interior finishes with leather (or vegan leather) seats. the gear shifter is sleekly built from chromed aluminum, giving every part of the Bronco a luxurious touch.

The car has a 70 kWh battery that keeps it humming for 190 miles, which is plenty of leeway to take the thing offloading (if you can bear to get it dirty).
