Monterey Car Week at Pebble Beach Jaguar confirms electric E-Type Zero

Jaguar confirms electric E-Type Zero

It was first unveiled in 2017 and the reaction was so positive that Jaguar finally decided to build it. It’s the Jaguar E-Type Zero, an EV based off the legendary E-Type that is remarkably cool once you shake off the natural tendency to think that this is a stupid idea.

The first concept unveiled in September 2017 is powered by a 40-kWh battery that can be charged in seven hours and provides over 200 kilometers of range. The production E-Type Zero’s body is largely inspired by the classic E-Type with the exception of the LED headlights.

Inside, you get E-Type seats and a wooden steering wheel combined with a digital instrument cluster and center touchscreen. The combination of new and old seen in the interior pictures makes us want to immediately jump behind the wheel of the E-Type Zero.

Jaguar confirmed the arrival of the E-Type Zero at the Monterey Car Show without offering more information about the engine, the battery or the range of the production version. We do know that several Jaguar I-Pace SUV components will end up in the E-Type Zero.

Fun fact, the electric engine powering the Zero is roughly the same size as the original E-Types engine. That means that you don’t have to modernize the brakes and suspension too much, and so the Zero’s dynamics shouldn’t be too far off what we found in the E-Type Jaguar produced between 1961 and 1975.

Pricing has yet to be confirmed. All we know is that Jaguar Classics will handle building the E-Type Zero.
