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.
