In a joint project with the British Government’s Technology Strategy Board, Jaguar have created the XJ plug-in hybrid, an advanced engineering research vehicle which shows what a hybrid version of Jag’s flagship may look and feel like. The car will be shown to the public at Goodwood, this week.
It is powered by Jaguar and Land Rover’s new 2.0-liter turbocharged petrol engine which is boosted by a 93 hp electric motor, pushing the car’s total power output up to a very reasonable 330 hp. The system enables the ‘green’ XJ to sprint from 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in under 6.5 seconds, and on to a top speed limited to 250 km/h (155 mph).

Despite its excellent performance, the hybrid system’s main strong point are its combined fuel consumption of 3.2l/100km(87 UK mpg), as well as a very low CO2 rating of just 75g/km. Factor in the car’s maximum all-electric range of 40 km (25 miles), and it genuinely looks like a very promising alternative to the XJ’s current engine range.
