The Jaguar XJ Revival Won’t Be Part Of JLR’s Future All-Electric Plans

Jaguar’s plans for an all-electric XJ sedan have been canceled as they will favour more popular SUV


  • The flagship Jaguar XJ was discontinued in 2019.

  • Jaguar was planning to relaunch the sedan as an EV this year.

  • JLR will be shifting over to a fully-electric lineup by 2030.


It was only a few days ago that Jaguar announced its intentions to go fully-electric by 2025, as part of JLR’s plans to switch over to EVs completely by 2030. One of the first vehicles in this new batch of EVs, excluding the I-Pace, was supposed to be the XJ flagship sedan. But now, it seems as though the legendary nameplate may not return.

Jaguar Announces Plan to go Full EV By 2025

After a half-century of figuring as the ultimate luxury Jaguar sedan, the XJ was pulled from production but it wasn’t done. The JLR’s plan was to make the XJ rise anew as Jaguar’s all-new fully-electric flagship vehicle. The British car company announced its vision to re-invent the XJ back in the spring of 2019.

The new charged-up Jaguar XJ was going to faceoff with the likes of the Tesla Model S, Porsche Panamera, and few other offerings from various start-ups but, according to Green Car Reports, and as we know, the money is in SUVs.

Going forward, JLR will focus on Land Rover and the six new electric vehicles it intends to launch by 2024.
