Jaguar is said to be working on an all-new all-electric XJ luxury sedan set to debut after 2025, featuring advanced technology and innovative design.
Jaguar is creating an all-electric XJ luxury sedan to join a revamped portfolio, including an SUV and a grand tourer.
The new XJ will utilize the long-wheelbase JEA electric vehicle architecture designed exclusively for Jaguar models.
Advanced features include all-wheel drive, four-wheel steering, rapid DC charging.
Jaguar is reportedly in the process of creating an all-new, all-electric luxury sedan, the XJ, which is scheduled for release after 2025. This information comes from a reliable source cited by British publication Autocar. The upcoming XJ will be part of a revamped portfolio that includes an SUV of BMW X5 dimensions and a four-seat grand tourer. These vehicles will share the long-wheelbase JEA electric vehicle architecture specifically designed for Jaguar models, distinct from the MLA platform set to be used in the upcoming Range Rover EV.
According to the source, all three new electric vehicles (EVs) are expected to feature all-wheel drive, four-wheel steering, and rapid DC charging capabilities enabling a 10 to 80 percent charge within just 13 minutes. Preliminary specifications suggest a power output exceeding 450 horsepower, a 0 to 100 km/h acceleration time ranging between 3 and 3.8 seconds, a maximum speed of 248 km/h, and estimated driving ranges spanning from 615 to 760 kilometers on a full charge.
Interestingly, Jaguar plans to retire the leaping cat emblem that has been a trademark of the brand, instead opting for the brand name to be spelled out in a new font across the front and rear, akin to Land Rover’s recent branding strategy.
As part of Jaguar’s strategic shift, the new JEA platform, set to be introduced in 2025, will usher in a significant aesthetic transformation across the brand’s lineup, necessitating the discontinuation of all current Jaguar models, including the all-electric I-Pace.
Details about the design of the forthcoming XJ reveal a departure from past models, both inside and out. The sedan is expected to adopt a minimalist and contemporary appearance. Additionally, the XJ and the other two upcoming EVs are projected to feature a unique design element—an absence of a rear window, supplemented by a live camera feed displayed on a digital mirror at the base of the windshield.
While the XJ’s design and features are generating considerable interest, Jaguar has not disclosed specific dates for the SUV and XJ replacement’s debuts. The four-door grand tourer is anticipated to be unveiled late next year, with sales commencing in 2025. This new iteration will follow the retirement of the previous generation XJ, which ceased production in 2019.
