The electric Jaguar E-Type Zero’s charm is its authenticity

Jaguar's E-Type Zero has a lot going for it: the style and charm of a classic 60s roadster, but with the electrified drivetrain of a modern EV. While there are plenty of reasons to fall for the open-top electric icon - confirmed, at Monterey Car Week, to be going into production from 2020 - what really stands out is how Jaguar has taken a very different approach from the rest of the EV-making industry.

The Lamborghini Aventador SVJ is 770hp of peak V12 track fiend

Is there such a thing as too powerful?

Audi may be readying its e-tron all-electric SUV for the market, but it picked Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance to reveal a far more playful EV concept, the PB18 e-tron supercar.
