A factory conversion of the Jaguar E-Type Zero was unveiled in September at the Jaguar Land Rover Tech Fest, and is now the focus of a Fully Charged review.

The 1968 antique was seamlessly equipped with an electric powertrain ... so the process could be reverted (if someone loses their mind or something we suppose).

The concept is not yet on sale, but Jaguar raised quite interest in the conversion, especially as an electric version could be offered to all Jaguars with the old six-cylinder XK-type engine.

A 40 kWh battery, good for range of up to 270 km (170 miles), capable of hitting 62 mph from a standstill in just 5.5 seconds, should satisfy every enthusiast.

"One of the most beautiful sports cars ever produced, converted to electric drive by Jaguar Land Rover. It's faster and lighter than the original!"
