The first “charged” electric car may be the new XJ

Jaguar Land Rover will send future electric and hybrid models for refinement to the Special Vehicle Operations factory unit, where they will be made more powerful and faster.

The German “big three” plans to release more powerful versions of their electric vehicles, and the British from the JLR are not going to lag behind them: for this, the electric Jaguar and Land Rover will be finalized in SVO. As the head of the Special Vehicle Operations factory unit Michael van der Zande said in an interview with Auto Express, electrification is on the agenda today, so promising electric cars and hybrids from Jaguar and Land Rover will also receive “charged” versions. However, contrary to popular belief, the current I-Pace electric crossover will not be included.

The reasons for this decision are not disclosed – probably this may be due to the fact that the Jaguar I-Pace is built on its own platform, which is not economically feasible to modify. In the near future, the company plans to release a new Jaguar J-Pace electric crossover and the flagship XJ sedan, which will also become exclusively electric in the new generation. Both of them will be built on the new proprietary MLA platform, which will subsequently serve as the basis for other new Jaguar Land Rover electric power plants.
