Jaguar XJ e plug-in hybrid

05 September 2012


  Jaguar has announced pricing and the engine line-up for the new XF Sportbrake – the first deliveries of which will take place in the UK towards the end of the year.

Powered by a range of powerful, yet efficient, diesel engines in 2.2- and 3.0-litre capacities, the XF Sportbrake marks the debut of new derivatives based on the 2.2-litre diesel unit. The engine is now available in 163 PS and 200 PS outputs – the latter replacing the existing 190PS output engine. Both share highly competitive CO2 emissions starting from just 135 g/km and economy of 55.4 mpg.

Jaguar Land Rover will demonstrate the ultra-low carbon XJ_e plug-in hybrid engineering research vehicle at the 2012 CENEX Low Carbon Vehicle Event today.

The innovative XJ_e project forms part of JLR’s strategy to develop best-in-class low-carbon premium products, and follows other successful hybrid research demonstrators including the Range_e project.

The XJ_e demonstrates how an advanced parallel plug-in hybrid design can deliver reductions in CO2 emissions of over 70 per cent, without compromising vehicle performance.

Capable of 62mph in under 6.5 seconds and with a limited top speed of 150mph, the XJ_e achieves CO2 emissions of less than 75g/km and a zero-emission range of 25 miles on electric power.

The XJ_e combines the class-leading lightweight aluminium vehicle structure from the Jaguar XJ with an advanced plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) system, featuring the efficient 2.0-litre turbocharged direct-injection petrol engine which powers the Range Rover Evoque and a hybridised 8-speed automatic transmission.

The hybrid system uses a 69kW motor/generator and a 12.3kWh Lithium Ion battery pack, which can be fully charged by an external 240V domestic supply in around four hours.

The parallel hybrid design means that the XJ_e can run on petrol power, electric power, or a combination of the two, optimised by the car’s intelligent energy management system which selects the most efficient mode.

With a maximum system output of 334PS, the XJ_e is still capable of exceptional performance, while the improved fuel economy of 87mpg translates into a maximum range of 679 miles on a full tank of fuel.
