Jaguar to display XJ_e PHEV at Goodwood

With a maximum system output of 329 hp, the XJ_e can go from zero to 62 mph in under 6.5 seconds, and has a Top speed of 150 mph, and all-electric range of 25 miles.


Jaguar Land Rover will display a plug-in hybrid research vehicle at the upcoming Festival of Speed at the historic Goodwood track in southern England. The XJ_e combines the lightweight aluminum structure of the Jaguar XJ with a PHEV system, featuring the 2.0-liter turbocharged direct-injection engine which powers the Range Rover Evoque and a hybridized 8-speed automatic transmission.

The hybrid system uses a 69 kW motor/generator from EVO Electric and a Li-ion battery pack from Axeon. The 12.3 kWh battery pack uses lithium iron phosphate pouch cells in liquid-cooled/heated self-contained modules. With a maximum system output of 329 hp, the XJ_e can go from zero to 62 mph in under 6.5 seconds, and has a limited top speed of 150 mph, and an all-electric range of 25 miles.
Bob Joyce, Engineering Director at Jaguar Land Rover, said, “The XJ_e investigates how a 5.0-liter V8 engine could be replaced by an advanced 2.0-liter 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.”
