Electric version of classic Jaguar 1968 E-type has just been unveiled

It has also made an electric concept auto of its classic E-type model - but there are no plans so far to put it into production. The auto will even have same drive feels because of the unchanged tires and suspensions etc. "It drives, handles, rides and brakes like an original E-Type", Jaguar says. The Ingenium engine that now sits at the heart of JLR's cars was created to be modular, so the next step you can expect is a wider range of hybrid options.

Electrified Jaguar E-type uses parts from the upcoming I-Pace to offer silent and zero emission performance. We seriously hope it does make it into production, but if it does one thing's for sure, it'll be expensive and rare.

Jaguar Land Rover has committed to offering an electric element to the drivetrain of all model lines launched after 2020 - but will continue to offer diesel and petrol variants.

"We will introduce a portfolio of electrified products across our model range, embracing fully electric, plug-in hybrid and mild hybrid vehicles", he said.

That said, Jaguar Land Rover has mentioned in the past that it would be interested in building an all-electric vehicle manufacturing plant in the United Kingdom - similar to that of Nissan's facility in Sunderland.

Jaguar Land Rover has brought to the fore a new improved version of its Jaguar E Type, and it is called Jaguar E Type Zero.

The E-type Zero will go on show at Jaguar Land Rover's Tech Fest event in London from 8-10 September, alongside the I-Pace SUV - Jaguar's other all-electric concept auto, which will see production in 2018. And it has chosen the Tech Fest in London to show its plan of action, announcing it will offer an electrified powertrain on every model starting from 2020, and debuting an autonomous concept with a steering wheel that acts as a personal concierge.

The luxury vehicle maker claims the Sayer concept is the first voice-activated artificial-intelligence steering wheel capable of carrying out hundreds of tasks.

With electric auto technology evolving at a staggering rate, the small-scale electrification of classic cars has become inevitable. That's pretty quick by most standards, and 0.1 seconds faster than the expected 0 to 60 of the Tesla Model 3.
