    Jaguar going electric

    https://www.engadget.com/2017/09/07/...rains-in-2020/

    So Jaguar are going all electric-drivetrain (Hybrid or pure-EV) by 2020. Slightly interesting, but it's generally the way the industry is heading.
    The really interesting thing imho is the E-Type Zero. They're gorgeous cars, and to have a modern EV version is awesome. Sadly I suspect they'll be way out of my price range if they ever make it past the concept stage!

    The E-type won't ever be made. Whilst it's a looker, it's old, people would want a better car as well as the looks.

    I'm sure they'll do something like an I-Type, 2 seater electric car. To be fair, that's what I really want. My family car is electric, but what I really want is a small electric roadster for my daily commute and blasting around the hills. I'm sure Mazda will get there eventually with an EV MX5

    Just to confirm you mean a 2-seater version of this?
