Jaguar Classic has confirmed that it will offer all-electric E-types for sale after an “overwhelmingly positive reaction” to the E-type Zero concept that was introduced in September last year.

The company hasn’t revealed any technical details and pricing details about the E-type EV but has stated that deliveries are expected to start from summer 2020.

Suffice to say, it will likely cost a pretty penny as Jaguar Classic will not only need to restore an E-type body but also convert it to be electric-powered. Existing customers who already have an E-type can send their cars in for an EV conversion service, which is fully reversible to preserve the authenticity of the base vehicle.

This process will take place at the same Classic Works facility in Coventry, United Kingdom where E-type Reborn restorations are being performed. Should you still have an affinity for fossil fuel, the Reborn programme is the one to go for.

“We’ve been overwhelmed by the positive reaction to the Jaguar E-type Zero concept. Future-proofing the enjoyment of classic car ownership is a major stepping stone for Jaguar Classic,” said Tim Hannig, director of Jaguar Land Rover Classic.

“E-type Zero showcases the incredible heritage of the E-type, and the expertise and craftsmanship at Classic Works, while demonstrating Jaguar Land Rover’s dedication to creating zero emission vehicles across every part of the business, including Jaguar Classic,” he added.

As a recap, the E-type Zero concept is based on the original Series 1 E-type that features a 40 kWh battery for a range of about 270 km. Many of the components are unchanged from the classic model, with exceptions to the I-Pace-derived electric powertrain.
