Jaguar Land Rover reveals E-Type Zero, to go all electric by 2020

Tata Motor owned Jaguar Land Rover has announced that from 2020, all new cars will be electrified. The all-electric Jaguar E-Type Zero will be the first one to be showcased at the Jaguar Land Rover Tech Fest in London which is open for public tomorrow onwards. The E-Type Zero is based on 1968 Series 1.5 Jaguar E-type Roadster and the company claims that the new electric technology enables it to sprint from 0 to 100kmph in about 5.5 seconds.

Ralf Speth, Jaguar Land Rover Chief Executive Officer, announced at the tech fest, "Every new Jaguar Land Rover model line will be electrified from 2020, giving our customers even more choice. We will introduce a portfolio of electrified products across our model range, embracing fully electric, plug-in hybrid and mild hybrid vehicles. Our first fully electric performance SUV, the Jaguar I-PACE, goes on sale next year." JLR is the latest car manufacturer who has announced its plans for all electric vehicles by 2020 and joins the likes of the Mercedes-Benz, Audi and BMW who have been working on all-electric vehicles.

The car manufacturer claims that the electric powertrain which develops 40kWh has been specially designed for the E-type Zero. The lithium-ion battery pack gets the same dimensions, and similar weight, to the XK six-cylinder engine used in the original E-type. The company claims that the vehicle has a driving range of about 270kms and can be fully charged in about six or seven hours. Interestingly, the electric powertrain has been placed in the same location as the XK engine. The electric motor and reduction gear is placed just behind the battery pack and is in the same location as the E-type’s gearbox. A new propshaft sends power to a carry-over differential and final drive. Moreover, the E-Type Zero is also 46kgs lighter than the original E-type.
