Harry and Meghan’s sponsored E-type is electrically powered



The British Royals had come out in force, last weekend, and they’d brought the cream of their motor collection to Windsor Castle, too. The public was presented to the Queen’s famous 1950 Rolls-Royce Phantom IV and a trio of Daimler DS420s, to name just a few.

But the biggest motoring surprise may have come from Prince Harry and his new wife Meghan Markle’s Jaguar E-Type upon leaving Windsor Castle for the evening wedding reception. Other then his brother some seven years ago, Harry didn’t drive his father’s Aston Martin, but a blue Jaguar that came from the manufacturer itself. This car, originally a Series 1.5 built in 1968, was recently converted to electric power by the factory and is called Jaguar Concept Zero.

It’s said to have 295bhp, making it more powerful and faster than the original. Jaguar launched the service to restore and convert existing E-Types to electric power at a cost of some £350,000. Engineer behind the project Tim Hannig said: “It may not appeal to every Jaguar purist, but I hope it will attract well-heeled buyers who desire classic motoring without the oil leaks.” Oh, that strange number plate is a folly: ‘E190518’ refers to the date of Saturday's wedding...

Quoting Stuart Penketh:
WHY is he driving a Left Hand Drive car ?
Is he thinking of going Continental ?

Good point, hadn't even noticed that! It could well be the European / US demonstrator..?
