Jaguar Land Rover plans electric cars

From 2020, all cars built by Jaguar Land Rover from sports coupés and luxury sedans to formidable SUVs will be offered in all-electric or hybrid guise. A pair of exciting, electric concept vehicles were also revealed.

Jaguar has unveiled its first electric auto, the E-type Zero, a model that is being hailed as the "most lovely electric vehicle in the world". Engineered at Jaguar Classic Works in Coventry, the conversion equips the E-type with a bespoke 220kw powertrain, which propels the vehicle from 0-60mph in 5.5 seconds (a second faster than the original), LED headlights, and a frankly bizarre-looking digital dashboard. The carmaker says that by 2020 all its new models will be fully electric, plug-in hybrid and mild hybrid vehicles, reports the Evening Standard. The E-Type Zero will launch from 0-100km/h in 5.5 seconds, however, Jaguar has limited the E-Type Zero's power to 220kW in order to maintain the E-Type's driving characteristics.

With I-PACE the company started with a clean sheet and engineered a bespoke, tailored, pure electric SUV from the ground up, creating a attractive design with everyday practicality.

According to a United Kingdom study, average Carbon dioxide emissions from Jaguar Land Rover vehicles were 164g per kilometer. It's a performance SUV, it looks stunning, is great to drive and will be on sale next year.

With Future Type's interface you can separately access your different digital orbits of work, family or play, dialling up what you do need, and dialling down what you don't.

Sayer is a voice-activated artificial intelligence steering wheel capable of carrying out hundreds of tasks on-demand.

While they basically share a name, the FUTURE-TYPE and the F-Type performance vehicle have nothing in common. The advanced speech recognition software will allow it to answer your questions, connect you to the news, organise your travel and select your entertainment.

REALCAR began as a partnership between Jaguar Land Rover, Innovate UK, Novelis, Norton Aluminium, Stadco, Brunel University London, Zyomax and Innoval Technology. "We think this is essential as it ensures a period Jaguar remains authentic to its DNA".
