Callum did not talk only about the F-Type, he mentioned the idea of an electric sports car, with the Technical Director of Jaguar Land Rover design, Wolfgang Ziebart, saying that the British company finds the hydrogen fuel cell technology, not so good.

Specifically, he said, that the performance of hydrogen engines is only 30%, when the corresponding performance of electric motors reaches 70%. He noted, that another significant problem of hydrogen cars is the lack of filling stations, with England having only three stations. Hence the JLR will invest £3 billion in development of electric models.
