Simple present infinitive is necessary. Sentence is fine as it is.

Stuck between 'A' & 'E'.

I'll vote 'E'. Just feeling right in the flow.

Actually, I am not so much happy with A either. The relative clause should come just after the noun that is modified.

However, in E "..and it could eventually have the capability.." could and capability is redundant.
