The show held an inaugural ceremony which featured announcement and reveals by the company. "It's part of our vision for how a luxury auto brand could continue to be desirable, in a more digital and autonomous age". But Jaguar Classic may have the answer, and has produced a version of its iconic E-type roadster with a fully electric powertrain.
Every new Jaguar Land Rover will be electrified from 2020 as the British auto giant responds to increasing demand for eco-friendly models. The vehicle would be able to traverse as far as 170 miles with the 40 kWh battery it has.
TechFest also marks the latest public appearance of the E-Pace, Jaguar's new compact crossover, launched (literally) with a barrel-roll stunt back in August. The motor sits in place of the original gearbox, which passes through a new propshaft that sends power to a carry-over differential and final drive. That being said, there's certainly room for both in this world, especially for those more infatuated with the Jaguar's stunning lines than the voodoo required to maintain a Lucas Electrical system.
We're also expecting to see that drivetrain introduced on the Jaguar F-Pace, Jaguar XF, and Jaguar XJ ranges in the future. "The advanced speech recognition software will allow it to answer your questions, connect you to the news, organise your travel and select your entertainment", Jaguar Land Rover said. The auto was built by the Jaguar Classic division of the company.
Will they build a production version? A Jaguar spokesperson confirmed to Trusted Reviews that this vehicle would be available to buy and was "not just a one-off".
The Jaguar E-Type Zero. "We're looking forward to the reaction of our clients as we investigate bringing this concept to market".
To make the transition from gas combustion to full-electric as seamless as possible, Jaguar designed the E-type Zero's battery pack to have the same dimensions and roughly the same weight as the XK engine it replaces.
