The environmentalist, who has already installed solar panels on royal roofs and switched to low-energy light bulbs, will be handed the keys to the new Jaguar I-Pace of 60,000 pounds next week, according to the Sunday Times.
Charles, the 69-year-old heir to the British throne, requested to paint his new Jaguar in his favorite shade of Loire blue, a choice that will not be available to other buyers of the model.
The Jaguar will join a royal fleet including Rolls-Royces, Bentleys and Range Rovers who run on petrol and diesel. An electric charging point has been installed at Clarence House, the home of Prince Charles & London, reported the paper.
His father, the Duke of Edinburgh, also traveled regularly through London in an environmentally friendly liquid Metrocab with petroleum gas, before retiring last year.
The son of Charles, Prince Harry, famously drove his new bride Meghan Markle to their wedding reception in May at Frogmore House, Windsor, in a Jaguar E-type that was adapted to use an electric motor and is said to be worth more than £ 350,000.
The Prince of Wales also converted his vintage Aston Martin to run on bio-ethanol fuel made from waste wine and whey, the by-product of cheese production. The DB6 Mk 2 Volante, which he bought in 1970 when he was 21, was used by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince William and Kate, after their wedding reception at Buckingham Palace in 2011.
According to reports, Prince Charles will rent his new Jag, with the costs that the royal family must bear.
He is supposed to have opted for the electric Jag over a Tesla model, because he prefers to use the Tata Motors brand for the American manufacturer of electric cars.
