The British automaker began developing a fuel cell car.

Jaguar Land Rover engineers have begun researching hydrogen energy. The project, dubbed Zeus, heralds the first British hydrogen car. The new generation Range Rover Evoque is expected to receive the first hydrogen fuel cells, which can be presented as early as 2025.

It is possible that if the Zeus project succeeds, the entire model range of the brand may switch to fuel cells in the future. Experts also believe that the next generation Jaguar F-Pace electric car can also become hydrogen in the future.

As previously reported by AutoTimesNews experts, next year Jaguar E-type will celebrate its 60th anniversary. Jaguar Classic thinks it’s time to honor the legendary model. The refurbished Jaguar E-Types Special Edition celebrates the iconic sports car’s anniversary and will be sold exclusively as a pair.

In Warwickshire, UK, Jaguar Classic is restoring existing 3.8-liter E models. Each replica of the 9600 HP CoupĂ© and 77 RW Roadster will receive an updated version of Jaguar’s famous inline-six petrol engine in addition to special logos. The unit developed 265 hp. and 353 Nm of torque. This provided an acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h in 7.0 seconds and a top speed of 240 km / h, which made the Jaguar E-Type the fastest production car in the world back in 1961.
