We’re all familiar with the Jaguar E-Type as it’s one of the most iconic cars ever manufactured. Now, a whole new E-Type is slated for release with one notable upgrade: an all-electric powertrain compliments of the Jaguar I-Pace SUV.

And for those who still need a little convincing, the all-new E-Type is expected to both drive and look just like the original 57-year-old vehicle but with even quicker acceleration. It’s all powered by a lithium-ion battery pack and electric motor boasting the same dimensions and similar weight to the standard six-cylinder XK engine from decades prior. Additional features, according to Jaguar, look to include 170-mile range per charge, LED headlights, a touchscreen infotainment system, and almost identical front-rear weight distribution as the original. Deliveries slated to start in summer of 2020.
