You can bat around contenders for the "most handsome electric car" all day, but if you ask us, there's only one auto deserving of that title, and it's the new Jaguar E-Type Zero. In such a situation, an electric motor could be used to shut off the gasoline engine when the auto is coasting, braking, or stopped, but also allow it to restart quickly when required.
The vehicle design is based on the 1968 Series 1.5 Jaguar E-type Roadster. The vehicle, which is fully autonomous (natch), includes its Sayer "intelligent" steering wheel.
For the past, there is the classic 1968 roadster, the E-type - but this is is the E-type Zero, which has been retrofitted with an electric powertrain and a modern dashboard with all of the instruments that a hybrid requires.
He said: "We will introduce a portfolio of electrified products across our model range, embracing fully electric, plug-in hybrid and mild hybrid vehicles".
Every Jaguar and Land Rover launched from 2020 will be electrified
New electric models from Jaguar's past, present and future have been on display at the Tech Fest event, highlighting the brand's electric intentions. This isn't just a concept, it's a real working product that Jaguar Land Rover are now showing off at their Tech Fest which opens to the public on the 8 September.
With a range of roughly 170 miles, the Zero imports much of the technology used in the production of the upcoming I-PACE EV SUV in terms of energy management and drivetrain. It's part of our vision for how a luxury auto brand could continue to be desirable, in a more digital and autonomous age,"explained Jaguar design boss Ian Callum. We're looking forward to the reaction of our clients as we investigate bringing this concept to market", said Tim Hannig, Director of Jaguar Land Rover Classic.
The company next year releases its first fully electric Jaguar - the I-PACE.
British media reported that JLR's emphasis on electric cars in Britain, where most of its auto production is based, could lead to the creation of 10,000 jobs in the country. With its sleek design and modern features sets it apart as one of the most handsome electric cars out there.
