Every Jaguar Car From 2020 Will Be Electric

Posted September 08, 2017

That's a future vision Jaguar Land Rover is exploring with Sayer, the connected steering wheel that could be the only part of the auto you own.

The 1968 sports auto was restored and reworked at Jaguar's Classic Works facility and can accelerate from 0 to 62 miles per hour (100 kph) in 5.5 seconds.

Not much else has been changed, peak inside the cabin and you'll find the original leather seats, large wooden steering wheel, although, the carbon fibre dash and touchscreen and rotary gear selector do belie it's modern underpinnings.

According to Bloomberg, JLR is unveiling designs for a battery version of its iconic E-Type roadster at a tech fair in London that starts later this week.

This hints strongly at the future of Jaguar, who today also announced that from 2020 all new Jaguar Model lines would be electrified.

The UK-based manufacturer has promised that all new models from 2020 will be fully electric or hybrid, which is being seen as a significant step beyond its unveiling last November of a single electric concept auto.

- British automaker Jaguar Land Rover is the next company to make a pledge to electrify everything.

JLR is set to launch its first fully electric model, the SUV Jaguar I-Pace, next year.

What we do know is that the first fully electric vehicle will be the Jaguar I-Pace. "We're looking forward to the reaction of our clients as we investigate bringing this concept to market". Called Sayer - named after the designer of the E-Type - it's a removable unit that uses artificial intelligence (AI) and voice recognition to carry out tasks such as summoning the vehicle and acting as a personal concierge.

"FUTURE-TYPE offers an insight into the potential for driving and vehicle ownership in the future".

The real message here is that this applies to new models from 2020, rather than updating existing models in the current line-up, so we don't know if an electric F-Pace is a reality or not. Explore the future with Jaguar Land Rover at Tech Fest 2017.

That new electric drivetrain all packaged very cleverly to resemble the original auto, with the electric motor and reduction gear just behind the battery pack where the gearbox would have gone.
