► Next XJ to be all-electric four-door► Powered by i-Pace EV tech► Spy photos, specs, scoopy details
Last year, Jaguar accepted a new all-electric XJ was in the pipeline, and now we’ve airtight the EV alehouse testing. Our spy photographers accept bent the brand’s additional EV cold-weather testing, but you’d be forgiven for cerebration you’re attractive at a cut-‘n’-shut XF with an odd paintjob.
Take a attending at the altered and added advanced end and college aperture sills, though, and it’s bright this isn’t a XF at all, but a mule for Jag’s additional electric car, ability cold-weather testing in the Arctic circle, as engineers accomplish the battery-powered electric agent (EV) works accurately back the mercury plummets.
As CAR annual appear in 2018 – and back accepted by Jaguar – the new all-electric XJ almsman will be produced at the firm’s Castle Bromwich bulb in the UK Midlands, and will borrow heavily from the company’s game-changing i-Pace crossover.
The new EV is accepted to barrage in 2021, with the aggregation that developed the i-Pace demography the reins on architecture and engineering. While the technology will be cutting-edge, we accept that the architecture may be beneath accelerating than that ground-breaking pioneer.
Expect the new XJ backup to be offered absolutely with electric propulsion (even admitting the agent bay would board a V6, according to our sources). This will position the newcomer absolutely adjoin the brand of the Porsche Taycan and Tesla Model S.
The XJ almsman will be a glassy affluence alehouse configured as a five-door liftback, according to CAR magazine’s sources. Rather than a lower, squashed i-Pace aesthetic, we accept the four-door will be added affiliated to an engorged XF and bears little affinity to its predecessor.
This will become the aboriginal car congenital application Jaguar Land Rover’s new MLA belvedere (on the Jaguar side, at least), which will affirm the approaching Jaguar J-Pace big SUV and next-gen Range Rovers too. While the ‘e-XJ’ would artlessly be a authentic EV, Jaguar hasn’t yet committed to abacus agitation engines added bottomward the line. It is technically feasible, according to able-bodied placed engineering sources. Expect a best of rear- or all-wheel drive, depending on the spec, amount and ambition market.
Our artists accept congenital up this consequence beneath by Andrei Avarvarii of what the new all-electric Jaguar alehouse could attending like:
The all-wheel-drive XJ is apprenticed by four electric motors in top-dog spec, fed by a floor-mounted array backpack (the i-Pace uses a 90kWh battery, the XJ may advancement to 100kWh). Each motor could arouse as abundant as 200bhp, acceptation the e-XJ could bulb a actual big beat abutting to the clip basic of Jag’s acclaimed ‘grace, amplitude and pace’ strapline. But ride quality, clarification and architecture ball would be prioritised every bit as abundant as speed.
Single motor versions will be offered too, bringing the amount point bottomward in markets area all-wheel drive is not advised essential.
The i-Pace has apparent Jaguar’s alertness to be adventurous with its electric cars, and in that spirit the XJ will carelessness its archetypal three-box alehouse roots for a added accelerating low-drag shape.
The e-XJ will accordingly use the college amount that a affluence EV could command to account its ample advance cost. A high-technology, low-volume car, it ability not be awful profitable, but its amount as a flagship account car could be huge.
