Classic car electrification company Electrogenic has electrified the Jaguar E-type, offering a choice of three zero-emission powertrains to provide different driving experiences and levels of performance.
The Oxford-based company has created a ‘Tourer’ conversion of the E-Type that comes with an electric powertrain and gives the car a maximum speed of about 100mph, through the car’s original gearbox.
Customers can also choose a ‘Sprint’ conversion, with a near-original kerb weight and a powertrain producing 470Nm of torque, again delivered through the car’s original gearbox.
Electrogenic also offers a high-performance ‘Grand Tourer’ conversion which removes the original gearbox, updating the power delivery and drivetrain to that of a more modern vehicle.
In ‘Grand Tourer’ specification, the electric powertrain delivers 300kW, and 600Nm of torque, for high performance.
The Tourer and Sprint options offer an approximate all-electric range of 150 miles, with one or two optional range-extenders that add about 50 miles of additional range each.
Also, the Grand Tourer option offers a single range extension that extends the range on a single charge to 250 miles.
The E-Type celebrates its 60th anniversary this year.
Steve Drummond, director and co-founder of Electrogenic said, “Electrifying an icon is always going to be a challenge, and because of that we’ve put a great deal of thought and research into the options that we will provide for customers.
“Each vehicle we re-create is customised, but engineering three distinct motor options gives our customers a clear starting point for the conversion.
“Each of the motor systems complements our battery and power electronics module that bolts directly to the original engine mounts, and which is designed to accommodate both left and right-hand drive.”
