All-electric 2020 Jaguar XJ teased at Frankfurt

All-electric 2020 Jaguar XJ teased at Frankfurt

-         The next-gen XJ will go pure electric.

-         Likely to use the same platform and powertrain as the I-Pace.

-         Expected to break cover either later this year or sometime in 2020.

We had reported in January last year about Jaguar’s plans for its flagship sedan, the XJ. The Coventry-based carmaker will continue with its electrification plans with the XJ as the Luxo-barge is set to go all-electric as well. During a presentation about the new-gen Land Rover Defender at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show, Jaguar subtly teased the new-gen XJ as well.

Having soldiered on for a decade (the current-gen model was introduced in 2009), the XJ L also celebrated its 50th-anniversary last year. This is the first time the carmaker has officially said or done anything around the upcoming sixth-generation XJ. Not much was divulged at the Frankfurt stage, but according to reports the fully-electric XJ will ride on an all-new MLA platform. This architecture will support a four-electric motor allowing an all-wheel-drive layout with the battery pack placed underneath the floorboard. In terms of powertrain, the I-Pace SUV should be able to provide the 90kWh battery pack with an output of around 400 horsepower and 700Nm of torque. It is expected to have a range of around 350 kilometres,

However, if rumours are to be believed, a non-electric version might also continue to co-exist alongside the electric version. Whether it will be a conventionally powered one or will be a plug-in hybrid cannot be said at the moment. Appearance-wise, Jaguar will adopt the new design language for the new XJ and the upcoming I-Pace facelift. This updated design would be akin to the one seen on the recently revealed XE facelift.

The new-gen XJ is expected to be revealed either late this year or sometime in 2020. It should hit the streets before 2021 and should also make its way to India as well. When it arrives, the electric XJ will go up against Tesla Model S, the recently revealed Porsche Taycan, apart from upcoming Mercedes-Benz EQS and Audi E-Tron GT.
