Jaguar does it again, with the most lovely electric auto ever made

"Hello, my name is Sayer. I am the steering wheel of the future" Jaguar Land Rover reveals all new vehicles to be electric by 2020

Jaguar also unveiled an electric version of the classic Jaguar E-type concept auto, known as the E-type Zero. Based on a 1968 Series 1.5 Roadster, but with the old drivetrain switched out in favour of one of JLR's current battery-fed setups, the classic sports auto will now hit 60mph in a very respectable 5.5 seconds. "But this is a steering wheel like never before".

The E-type Zero roadster is said to have a real-world range of 270km (just under 170 miles) thanks to a 40kWh battery that can be fully recharged in six to seven hours. 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 will add electric power to every model launched from 2020 - and it's even predicting a driverless vehicle for 2040. JLR wants to achieve this goal in 2020 by presenting a range of fully electric, plug-in hybrid, and mild hybrid vehicles.

Jaguar Land Rover hasn't made any indications as to how much the hybrid and electric options will cost on its cars - nor how its electric models could look or perform. Called the Future-Type, the model is fully autonomous and "explores mobility for the connected world of tomorrow where vehicles could be shared and not owned".

Jaguar Land Rover says with Future Type's interface you can separately access your different digital orbits of work, family or play, dialling up what you do need, and dialling down what you don't.

While electric cars have been promised for years, it's only in recent years that developments in battery technology have allowed auto manufacturers to create fully electric vehicles with practical distance ranges.

Sky's Business Presenter Ian King said: "A lot of people will say that Jaguar Land Rover have come late to the electric vehicle party". The vehicle is a part of Jaguar's Past improvement project.

Roughly the same size and weight as the original E-type's combustion engine, the battery pack that powers the E-type Zero concept is positioned in the same place.

.

He commented: "The premium end of things is moving more quickly [towards electrification] in part because electric vehicle costs are higher at the moment because of battery costs, so they can absorb that".

Although 2020 is a year later than Volvo's 2019 target, it's still a significant pledge considering its only all-electric creation to date is the Jaguar I-Pace, an SUV that's due to hit the market next year.
