After announcing its intention to electrify every car it sends out of the door from 2020 onwards, Jaguar last year revealed the E-Type Zero - quite possibly the most stonkingly beautiful electric car we’ve seen so far. Named after and based on the iconic 1960s automobile, the E-Type Zero is fitted with a 220kW electric powertrain capable of 0 to 60mph in 5.5 seconds. On the surface it looks remarkably similar to its petrol-powered predecessor, but weighs in at 67kg less. The battery pack has an estimated range of around 170 miles, and you can expect a six to seven hour recharge time. For a while it looked like this modernised classic would never make it past concept, but Jaguar has confirmed that it will indeed go into production, and you'll be able to register your interest online. No word on price yet.
