Following an overwhelmingly positive reaction to the original concept for “the most beautiful electric car in the world”, Jaguar Classic has confirmed it will offer all-electric E-types for sale.
The news follows the iconic EV sports car’s successful debut in concept form at the Jaguar Land Rover Tech Fest.
Combining its restoration expertise with cutting-edge technology from the Jaguar I-PACE, the award-winning zero-emissions performance SUV, Jaguar Classic will offer tailor-made E-types restored and converted to electric power at the same Classic Works facility as its outstanding E-type Reborn restorations in Coventry, UK.
An EV conversion service for existing E-type owners will also be offered. To preserve the authenticity of the base vehicle, the EV conversion will be fully reversible.
Jaguar Classic is targeting a range in excess of 273km for all-electric E-types, helped by the car’s low kerb weight and sleek aerodynamics. The concept is powered by a 40kWh battery, which can be recharged in 6-7 hours, depending on power source.
Technical specifications and pricing details will follow, but Jaguar Classic is now taking expressions of interest from potential E-type Zero clients. Deliveries of the first electric E-type vehicles are expected to start in 2020.
