New Jaguar XJ Could Debut This Year with an All-Electric Platform

It’s about time again to witness another design evolution since the creation of the Jaguar flagship sedan. With the introduction of Jaguar XJ that is most likely to debut this year, the brand is making a bold move to take its XJ version to an all-electric platform.

The latest version of the Jaguar has been refined to bring out the fullness of its presence and vitality: the exceptional engines, a lightning fast transmission and a range of advanced driving technologies will take the new model to a greater height.

Inside interior, includes state-of-the-art infotainment system and a 10.2 inch touchscreen, intuitive multi-touch gesture navigation and seats upholstered in leather with diamond quilted stitch pattern for a luxe finish, all to accentuate with the handcrafted veneer that runs along the cabin. The long wheelbase model features a larger legroom, measuring over a metre to offer passengers ample spaces to stretch or relax, and revised air suspension settings for even greater comfort.

When the XJ is ready to debut in the market, it will join the ranks of the luxury market segment once again, going head-to-head with the likes of the Tesla Model S, and the upcoming Porsche Mission E. Even though the current XJ looks good, it is reported that the model is the all-new in its class since the launch of the last model for Jaguar in 2009 and rival brands such as Mercedes-Benz, BMW and Audi have all undergone total facelifts with the launch of S-Class, BMW 7 Series and A8 respective to the aforementioned brands.

Combining new design language with advanced technology in the current age, has enabled the British automaker to see the creation of more iconic inspiring the cars of today. Of course, newer features in terms active safety features, driver-assist technology, and advanced powertrains are key in the new version of any luxury car model to keep up to the similar lines of the brand’s main rivals.

What’s new for the British automaker would be its intention to move to electrify all new vehicles by as soon as 2020.
