Electrogenic presents EV conversion kit for Jaguar E-Type


British EV conversion specialist Electrogenic has presented the first completed Jaguar E-Type Roadster fitted with its new ‘drop in’ EV conversion kit ‘E43’. The kit is compatible with Series 1 to 3 cars, in both Coupe and Roadster form.

The first E-Type to be converted with the Electrogenic kit sports the ‘E43’ package which equips the classic British Roadster with a 43 kW battery, which allows for a range of over 150 miles “in real-world driving” conditions. The electric drive system provides 120 kW of power and 460 lb/ft (620 Nm) of torque, allowing the E43 kit-equipped E-Type to hit an acceleration speed of 0-60 mph (0-100 km/h) in under 6 seconds.

Electrogenic also has higher capacity kits, titled E48 and E63, which feature 48 kW and 63 kW of batteries respectively. These allow for the converted Roadster to hit up to 160 and 200+ miles of range and both have a little extra power with 150 kW. Charging of all variants can be done on a 6.6 kW or CCS connection, taking about 50 minutes for a full charge.

“We’re delighted to reveal the first customer E-Type fitted with our game-changing drop-in conversion kit,” said Steve Drummond, Co-Founder of Electrogenic, adding: “Having seen extraordinary international demand since we launched our drop-in kit range at the end of last year, it’s immensely satisfying to now be delivering kit converted classics – like this stunning E-Type – to new owners all over the world, ready to be enjoyed for decades to come.”

The company further writes that the kit is “simple to install; they can be easily fitted by a qualified technician”, despite the difficulties of fitting a battery in the small car body. This is apparently due to the design of the battery boxes and cell packaging, which allow for the packaged batteries to be “nestled low down in the engine bay, replacing the cast-iron engine block, and at the rear of the car instead of the fuel tank and spare wheel”. For the larger battery E63 version, the extra battery storage is located behind the rear seat. Lightweight components even allow for the conversion to be lighter than the original vehicle.

Last year, Electrogenic presented an electric conversion kit for the Land Rover, followed by another conversion kit for the classic Mini.
