Every new Jaguar and Land Rover launched from 2020 will be electric or hybrid, the UK's biggest auto maker has announced.

Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) has pledged to stop building cars powered exclusively by petrol and diesel. JLR wants to achieve this goal in 2020 by presenting a range of fully electric, plug-in hybrid, and mild hybrid vehicles. No other reproduction or distribution is permitted without prior written consent. The Jaguar E Type Zero which is an electric vehicle that is based on the 1968 Series 1.5 Jaguar E-type Roadster.

The I-Pace will have a range of 310 miles (500km), and JLR has indicated that it would like to build an electric auto plant in the United Kingdom, similar to Nissan's Sunderland facility.

That new motor is fed by a 40 kWh battery that has roughly the same dimensions, same placement and a similar weight to the E-Type's original V6 XK engine.

Demand for electric vehicles continues to rise sharply.

Sadly the news isn't quite as transformative as some eco-worriers (like this author) might have hoped: The company will still produce petrol-engined versions of its vehicles too. but at least having a hybrid option is a step in the right direction. 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.

In order to seamlessly combine the new electric powertrain of the E-type Zero with the dynamic set-up of the original E-type specification, we have limited the vehicle's power output. Other than its electric powertrain and modified instrumentation the auto is completely original in specification.

In a bid to play catch-up with Tesla (TSLA), Jaguar unveiled its vision for the auto of the future.

A beautifully sculpted piece of art, like every Jaguar Land Rover product, Sayer owes its name to one of the most prominent designers from Jaguar's past, Malcolm Sayer, who worked for the British marque between 1951 and 1970.

A slightly Skynet feature is the 'intelligent steering wheel that will revolutionise the way you live your life.' Called Sayer, after Malcolm Sayer, who designed the E-Type, it detaches from the vehicle and 'lives in your home and becomes your trusted companion.' Sounds pretty damn creepy, if you ask us.
