Jaguar electrifies its classic E-type car

Via Dezeen

With more and more countries planning to eradicate petrol cars, Jaguar has unveiled a zero-emissions version of its iconic E-type model – which it hopes will “future-proof classic car ownership”.

The British luxury motor company has equipped a prototype of its E-type sports car with a fully electric engine. The result will be presented during a tech festival at London’s Central Saint Martins this weekend.

Engineered by Jaguar Land Rover’s specialist Classic department, the E-Type Zero aims to “future-proof classic car ownership” at a time when petrol cars are becoming increasingly unpopular.

The announcement comes after news that Jaguar Land Rover will stop making petrol and diesel cars as of 2020 – following in the footsteps of Volvo, which similarly plans to halt sales of non-electric models by 2019.

“E-type Zero combines the renowned E-type dynamic experience with enhanced performance through electrification,” said Jaguar Land Rover director Tim Hannig.

“Our aim with E-type Zero is to future-proof classic car ownership. We’re looking forward to the reaction of our clients as we investigate bringing this concept to market.”
