The Zero … is it a hero?

Jaguar has put the cat among the pigeons with its E-Type Zero, which features a battery and electric motor in place of the petrol six and gearbox.

Weight drops by 46kg, weight distribution stays the same, it’s a second quicker from 0-100km/h, at 5.5sec, and has a range of 330km. Installation leaves the original structure intact, so it is possible to refit the internal combustion engine if you ever want to restore the value and character of your E-Type. The system is applicable to any Jaguar that used the XK six-cylinder, which includes models from 1948 to ’92. o ion nd ble
