Prince Harry and Meghan Takes Their First Drive In A Classic Jaguar With A Modern Electric Twist



Prince Harry and Meghan Markel tied the knot at the 'Royal Wedding' yesterday and while the world 'ooohed and aahed' at the handsome Prince in his Army regalia and the beautiful bride in her white Givenchy dress, we here at Car And Bike swooned over something completely different. And yet, quintessentially British.

Post the wedding ceremony, the 'Royal Couple' made their way from Windsor Castle to Frogmore House on the Windsor Estate. And in true British style, the now Duke of Sussex drove his wife Meghan in the only car appropriate for this 'first journey as man and wife', a Jaguar E-Type. But it isn't just a regular E-Type. The car chosen for this short drive is the new Jaguar E-Type Zero Concept, which although still has the appeal of the classic Jag on the outside, is actually a brand new electric car under the skin.

And it is not just the car and its Britishness that is significant here. While the British Royal family has always had a soft spot for Jaguars and Land Rovers, afterall, the Queen still occasionally drives herself too, choosing an electric car also has a deeper message attached. It sets an example to showcase the fact that electric cars, in all shapes, forms, body styles and sizes are here to stay and are finally 'COOL'. Afterall, if the Duke of Sussex sees it fit to drive one, us commoners should surely take note.

While the absolutely sexy exterior stays true to its roots, with the long accentuated body and the low slung shoulder line and spoked wheels, under the hood, the car gets a 40 kWh battery, a 295 bhp motor and a range of 270 kms.

 The Jaguar E-Type is known to be the most beautiful car in the world, not just according to us or common consensus but even according to the legendary 'Enzo Ferrari'.
