The announcement of Jaguar E-Type Concept Zero comes after the determination of Tata Motor's Jaguar Land Rover to stop making gasoline and diesel cars by 2020. This step follows Volvo who also plans to stop selling non-electric models by 2019.

"E-type Zero combines the E type dynamic experience through electrification. Our goal is to prove the classic car of the future. We look forward to the client's reaction when bringing this concept to market," said Jaguar Land Rover Director Tim Hannig.



Jaguar produced the E-Type in 1961 to 1975 and is widely regarded as an icon of the car industry. Italian racecar driver Enzo Ferrari describes it as the most beautiful car in the world. Jaguar is keen to make the electric model as similar as possible to the original in appearance and performance.

The electric powertrain has the same weight and size as the gasoline engine where the car design does not have to be changed. E-Type Concept Zero has acceleration from 0 to 62 miles per hour in just 5.5 seconds.

"New electrical powertrain with dynamic settings of the original E type specification, we have limited vehicle power output. We integrate into existing structures where conventional machines can be reassembled at any point," said Hannig.
