Jaguar has revealed its latest ultra-low CO2 Jaguar XJ_e Plug-in Hybrid concept at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed.
Power for the Jaguar XJ_e Concept comes from a parallel plug-in hybrid system that consists of a 2.0 liter turbo engine from the Range Rover Evoque with a 8-speed automatic, helping it pump out 329-hp.
The hybrid system consists of a 69kW motor that is fueled by a lithium-ion battery pack. Full charge takes about 4 hours fro ma 240V outlet.
The XJ_e Plug-in Hybrid sprints from 0-100km/h (0-62mph) in 6.5 seconds while top speed is electronically limited at 250km/h (155mph).
The XJ Plug-in Hybrid Concept has a zero emissions electric driving range of up to 40km (25 miles) before the range extending gasoline engine kicks in.
The overall fuel economy figures come in at an impressive 3.2l/100km (88.3 mpg UK / 73.5 mpg US) which equates to a possible range of up to 1092 km (679 miles) on a full tank of fuel.
As of right now, the Jaguar XJ_e is just a prototype – the company has not confirmed whether or not the plug-in hybrid sedan will enter production.[wzslider height=”400″ lightbox=”true”]
