Are you ready for a Jaguar that hums rather than purrs when you turn the key?

The move comes just months after rival Volvo Cars confirmed that it would electrify its entire range of vehicles by 2019.

In 2020, the British-based, Indian-owned automaker says every Jaguar and Land Rover model will be offered with a hybrid, plug-in hybrid or pure battery-electric vehicle - or HEV, PHEV and BEV - option.

To mark the occasion, Jaguar has revealed three one-off electric cars, representing the past, present and future. The company hopes that every vehicle built after 2020 will either be fully electric or a hybrid that makes use of both an electric motor and a traditional petrol-powered engine. The powertrain could also be used in any other Jaguar that originally ran the inline-6 known as the XK. Engineers from Jaguar Land Rover Classic carried out the work.

JLR is heavily reliant on diesel sales in Europe where the fuel has come under fire for high levels of harmful NOx emissions. At the same time, however, that more modest fleet size makes it simpler to implement electrification across the board, especially when more and more products at Jaguar and Land Rover share a common platform.

Jaguar is envisioning a future that's focused on self-driving and on-demand shared mobility with its new Future-Type concept auto. More important, if you still want to drive the auto, you can, and the steering wheel will also allow you to steer, a novel idea in a way.

He went on: "Our Future-Type Concept is an advanced research project looking at how we can ensure an on-demand Jaguar will appeal to customers in 2040 and beyond".

An avowed old-car lover with his own classic collection, Hannig is quick to acknowledge that an electric E-Type won't suit everyone and may outrage a few.

More forward thinking is the Future-Type concept that envisions the Jaguar of 2040.

The group, owned by Indian conglomerate Tata, told AFP in November 2016 that it meant to double its production of cars worldwide in future years.

The gruff roar of a Jaguar or a Land Rover has been a familiar sound for decades, but it is soon to be replaced by a Prius-like whimper.
