The XJ_e is a parallel hybrid with the company's 2.0 liter, turbocharged four-cylinder diesel engine and a 69kW electric motor for a total system output of 334ps. It uses the eight-speed automatic already available on the XJ.  It will accelerate to 100km/h in 6.5 seconds and a 250km/h limited top speed. Even with this quite robust performance, the XJ_e produces 75g/km of CO2 and 3.2l/100km. It will run completely electrically for 40km (25 miles). Total range for the car is 1092km (679 miles).

“The XJ_e investigates how a 5.0-litre V8 engine could be replaced by an advanced 2.0-litre hybrid powertrain to deliver similar performance and refinement, but with CO2 emissions of less than 75g/km.  While the XJ_e is an experimental project, it highlights that JLR customers can expect some exciting low-carbon products in the future,” said Bob Joyce, Engineering Director at Jaguar Land Rover. 

The car was partially funded by the UK Government’s Technology Strategy Board.
