Britain’s biggest carmaker Jaguar Land Rover has confirmed production of an electric version of its E-type sports car, with first deliveries planned for the summer of 2020.

Jaguar Classic, the company’s fast-growing heritage division, will convert the metallic powder vehicles to electric power at its Classic Works facility in Coventry.

The company gave no details on prices for the cars. The E-Type Zero Concept, shown last year, featured a 295bhp electric motor and had a claimed 150mph top speed – matching the original 1961 car – and a 0-60mph time of 5.5sec.

The latest version of the new E-type Zero will debut at California’s Monterey Car Week on Friday.
