Big news from the fancy vehicle industry this morning, as Jaguar has announced that from 2020 all of its cars will be fully electrified or hybrids.

Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) has pledged to stop building cars powered exclusively by petrol and diesel.

Only days before the doors open for the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show, Jaguar Land Rover has made a big announcement: Starting in 2020, all new Jaguars and Land Rovers will be electrified. "Our first fully electric performance SUV, the Jaguar I-PACE, goes on sale next year", Speth confirmed. The Jaguar E Type Zero which is an electric vehicle that is based on the 1968 Series 1.5 Jaguar E-type Roadster.

Tim Hannig, director of Jaguar Land Rover Classic, hopes this merging of the legendary looks at the E-Type-a vehicle that Enzo Ferrari is reputed to have called "the most handsome auto in the world" after its 1961 debut-with next-generation propulsion technology, a model that can be used for other vehicles. As the six-cylinder unit powered a whole range of Jaguar's between 1949 and 1992, similar conversions are possible in other classic Jaguar models. Sadly, the E-Type Zero is only a concept model, and we don't know anything about pricing.

The Future-Type is described as "a premium compact on-demand vehicle concept, created to meet the needs of future generations".

Those who know the automotive world would know that the Jaguar E Type Roadster is an iconic vehicle. That would include the already announced Jaguar I-Pace EV and likely a future Land Rover Defender - proving whether hybrid cars can truly make it in all types of weather conditions, The Verge says.

The firm, which is owned by Indian conglomerate Tata, says all models from 2020 will range from being fully electric to plug-in hybrid and mild hybrid.

"We are not just preparing for the future but delivering it". While this gives a fresh twist on a motoring classic, we're still wondering whether we'll be able to get that electric Range Rover.

He commented: "The premium end of things is moving more quickly [towards electrification] in part because electric auto costs are higher at the moment because of battery costs, so they can absorb that". Jaguar Land Rover is also presenting a concept for a voice-activated, detachable steering wheel.

Three. The Jaguar Future-Type is a concept the company believes is a viable concept for the year 2040.
