Jaguar to put the electric E-type concept car into production

One year after revealing the E-type as a concept at Jaguar Land Rover Tech Fest they have announced they will be putting it into production.

In their Classic Works Coventry site the car maker will restore classic E-types and convert to EV. In a bid to preserve the authenticity the conversion will be full reversable.

Tim Hannig, Jaguar Land Rover Classic Director, said: “We’ve been overwhelmed by the positive reaction to the Jaguar E-type Zero concept. Future-proofing the enjoyment of classic car ownership is a major stepping stone for Jaguar Classic.

“E-type Zero showcases the incredible heritage of the E-type, and the expertise and craftsmanship at Classic Works, while demonstrating Jaguar Land Rover’s dedication to creating zero emission vehicles across every part of the business, including Jaguar Classic.”

Jaguar Classic is targeting a range of more than 170 miles for all-electric E-types. The concept is powered by a 40kWh battery, which can be recharged in six to seven hours, depending on power source.
