Jaguar has confirmed that its next-generation XJ flagship luxury sedan will be an electric vehicle (EV). The last model of the current-generation XJ rolled off the production line last week, and the new car will go on sale in Europe in 2020. It will be one of a number of electric/ electrified cars from the Jaguar Land Rover stable to be produced from the company’s plant in Castle Bromwich, United Kingdom.

Convenience and affordability,” commented CEO Prof. Dr. Ralf Speth, “are the two key enablers to drive the uptake of electric vehicles to the levels that we all need. Charging should be as easy as re-fuelling a conventional vehicle.” The Jaguar brand already has an electric vehicle (EV) in the brilliant I-PACE, while the Land Rover brand is still awaiting its first one. However, there will also be a range of hybrids coming out of that factory for both brands, including one of the new Land Rover Defender.
