Jaguar plans an electric version of its 2010 XJ that may see the light of production come 2011. According to the AutocarUK’s report, Jaguar has produced a test model, a 2011 Jaguar XJ electric car that runs on a plug-in electric system with a small combustion engine for added range.

This electric 2011 Jaguar XJ would 47 mpg’s and under 120 g/km of carbon emissions. It does so with a 145kW electric motor (194 horsepower) and a 1.2L 3-cylinder engine keeping it charged on longer drives (up to 600 miles). That backup engine is courtesy of a partnership with Lotus, who will provide their expertise with light, powerful engines to Jaguar in the production of this electric steed.

Maybe, we’ll see the Jaguar XJ Electric Concept at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show next month, but right now you can check some photos from the gallery below after the jump. [via Autoblog and AutocarUK]
