Jaguar will introduce a new generation of flagship XJ by 2020

It is reported that the mass production of the competitor BMW 7 Series will end on July 5, approximately 10 years after the current generation of the model (index X351) was presented in 2015.

The current Jaguar XJ sedan is arguably the best-selling car from the British brand today. He occupies a special place in the company’s lineup, given its heritage, which has more than half a century. Speaking about this, the luxury full-size sedan celebrated its 50th anniversary last year – a special version of it was released.

During this interval, Jaguar managed to implement more than 120,000 copies of the XJ, some of which were in the posh version of Autobiography, while others were more sporty XJR575.

Production of the latter was completed by the end of last year due to the transition to a more stringent environmental standard WLTP.

It is reported that the production of Jaguar XJ will be discontinued for a year or even more. In 2020, the British brand will introduce a completely new version of its flagship car. It is known that it will be completely electric. And he will compete with the same eco-friendly models of the Porsche Taycan and Audi E-Tron GT.

Jaguar was encouraged by this decision by competitors to present all-electric versions of their full-size sedans. Mercedes is already working on the electric equivalent of the S-Class, which was probably called the EQS, while Audi also plans to make the next A8 completely electric.

We hope that Jaguar is working on the concept of the updated XJ, because we can not wait to see what the updated flagship model of the next iteration will look like, especially since it will lose the internal combustion engine.
