Modern design of electric cars, which like two drops of water like other cars, anyone is not surprising so the British company Jaguar Land Rover decided to create something completely unusual. A new model of electric vehicle called E-type Zero resurrected the classic image of the famous E-type roadster, produced in the late 60s of last century. Engineers and designers Jaguar without false modesty christened their offspring "the most beautiful electric car in the world." And it's not accidental, because even the famous Enzo Ferrari once recognized the E-type car as "the most beautiful ever created."
To pay tribute to the classics, a new electric car was created in the workshops near that place in Warwickshire, where in the 60s of the last century they produced the original E-type model. The car can accelerate to a speed of 100 km / h total in 5.5 seconds due to the fact that its engine power is 300 horsepower (220 kW). A rechargeable battery with a capacity of 40 kWh will allow the car to fully travel up to a distance of 270 kilometers. The full recharging cycle takes about 7 hours.
Jaguar engineers are proud that the size of the battery pack does not exceed the size of the original engine of 1968, and the dimensions of the electric motor and gearbox are comparable to the size of the old gearbox. The modern model E-type still underwent some cosmetic changes. For example, the dashboard was completely replaced, and instead of incandescent lamps, economical LEDs were installed in the headlamps.
At the moment, the first and so far the only copy of the car is shown at the automotive exhibition in London. The management of Jaguar wants to understand: how the public will react to such references to the classical design. And if the electric car will suit people, the company immediately starts serial production.
