Jaguar’s Electric E-Type is Going into Production 

Remember the electric Jaguar E-Type which Prince Harry used to transport his new wife Meghan Markle to their honeymoon back in May? Well it’s back, and this time you could own one.

Jaguar have announced that Jaguar Classic - the division of JLR which restores classic Jags – will be putting the E-Type Zero into production, and ready for purchase by the summer of 2020.

“We've been overwhelmed by the positive reaction to the Jaguar E-type Zero concept.” Said director Tim Hannig.

"E-type Zero showcases the incredible heritage of the E-type,” Hannig continued, “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."

As we reported at the time, the car restored for the royal wedding featured a 295-horsepower electric motor, a 220kW electric powertrain and a 40kWh battery, giving it an impressive range of 170 miles.  

These numbers are likely to change as more information is released, and one notable change already is the impressive central touchscreen infotainment screen, which adds a more noticeable, futuristic update to the classic car.

With their impressive work with the I-Pace, along with Jaguar’s other ambitious electric endeavours, there’s no better manufacturer to take on a project as exciting as this one.
