Other details are not available at this point but chances are Jaguar is planning an electric version of the F-Type. It could have something to do with the C-X75 and C-X16 concepts from previous years but the two of them both had hybrid powertrains.

The C-X75 concept was originally unveiled at the 2010 Paris Motor Show with four 198 HP electric motors and two small turbine engines able to run on diesel, compressed natural gas, LPG and biofuel. These turbines turned the vehicle into a hybrid to extend the range beyond the 68 miles (109 km) offered by the batteries.

At that moment Jaguar said the C-X75 needed 3.4 seconds to cover the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) sprint and 5.5 seconds for the 0-100 mph (0-161 km/h) journey before topping out at 205 mph (333 km/h).

As for the C-X16 concept, this one premiered at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show with a 50:50 weight distribution and a more conventional hybrid setup consisting of a 380 HP 3.0-liter V6 and a 95 HP electric motor. Power was channeled to the rear wheels via an eight-speed gearbox granting the vehicle with a 0-62 mph run in 4.4 seconds and a 186 mph (300 km/h) top speed.

Since Jaguar just trademarked the "EV-Type" name, don’t expect a car with this designation to come out in the near future.
