Classic Jaguar E-Type Could Be Reborn…….Yippppeeeeee
Great news from the Tata owned British brand Jaguar. Latest news have revealed that there are plans to put the electric E-Type Zero into production. Jaguar will produce the E-Type Zero, and restore classic E-Types to convert them to battery power. The models will be similar to the car that was driven by Prince Harry with his bride Meghan Markle at their recent royal wedding.
In 1961, the Jaguar E‑type rewrote the rule book with its balance of sports car performance and refined style. Today, E‑Type Zero, a fully factory restored and converted original E‑Type combines the spirit of Jaguar’s 1960s icon with zero‑emission powertrain technology. Just imagine the future potential.
Bespoke Electric Powertrain
The all-electric lithium-ion powertrain is comparable in size to the original Jaguar straight-6 and is located in the same place for optimum weight distribution and handling. A sophisticated single-speed reduction gear helps to produce maximum power in the smallest possible footprint.
Combining Jaguar restoration expertise with cutting-edge technology from the Jaguar I-PACE, this E-type Zero delivers performance without compromise. The 0-100km/h sprint is estimated at less than 7 seconds and thanks to unchanged front-rear weight distribution, it rides and brakes like the original iconic E-Type.
And here is the best news. Would you like to electrify your current classic E-Type Jaguar?
