If we had to drive an electric vehicle, it'd be this Jaguar

The company recently developed an electric version of its classic E-type model, with the concept referred to as the E-type Zero. The auto will even have same drive feels because of the unchanged tires and suspensions etc. "It drives, handles, rides and brakes like an original E-Type", Jaguar says. But Jaguar outfitted its restored beast with an electric powertrain capable of 0 to 100 kilometers per hour (about 62 mph) in 5.5 seconds.

Jaguar Land Rover reveals a smart steering wheel that will handle multiple functions, no matter how big of a dummy is holding it.

This particular E-Type, built on an existing chassis we believe, is fitted with a cutting-edge electric powertrain in place of the original petrol engine. We seriously hope it does make it into production, but if it does one thing's for sure, it'll be expensive and rare.

Jaguar Land Rover announced the news on Thursday at its very first Tech Fest event, noting that this will include fully electric, plug-in hybrid and mild hybrid vehicles. Underscoring its electric shift, Jaguar will start selling the I-PACE battery-powered performance SUV next year.

The British carmaker, owned by India's Tata, said: "Jaguar Land Rover is working towards a cleaner future".

Jaguar Electric Cars: Does Jaguar Land Rover have any right now? "We're looking forward to the reaction of our clients as we investigate bringing this concept to market." says Hannig.

A slightly Skynet feature is the 'intelligent steering wheel that will revolutionise the way you live your life.' Called Sayer, after Malcolm Sayer, who designed the E-Type, it detaches from the vehicle and 'lives in your home and becomes your trusted companion.' Sounds pretty damn creepy, if you ask us.

While electric cars have been promised for years, it's only in recent years that developments in battery technology have allowed auto manufacturers to create fully electric vehicles with practical distance ranges.

It also launched a major recruitment drive for as many as 1,000 electronic and software engineers in collaboration with the pop group Gorillaz, in a move touted at the time as being crucial to developing the software and hardware necessary for electric and autonomous cars.
