Jaguar Land Rover Classic has been restoring and rebuilding ultra-classic JLR models. The company revealed a new take on a classic with an electrified E-type called the Zero, that is faster than the original. Most of the restored E-type cars have been pre-sold or slated for ownership before restoration even began. This car is an exception.
The Jaguar E-type Zero is a restored Series 1.5 E-type Roadster with an electric powertrain. The chassis and exterior have been restored to original, except the virtual display instrument cluster and center console equipment. And Off-course its missing the sound of the engine when started up and running. Under the hood, replacing the engine, is a weighted set of batteries. Behind that is an electric motor to power the car.
The E-type Zero features a 220 kW powertrain with a 40 kWh lithium-ion battery pack. Total vehicle range is about 270 km per charge with a six to seven-hour charge time for most 220V charging stations. It reaches 100 km/h in just 5.5 seconds. The E-type Zero can be seen in the following video.
