The powertrain consists of 2.0-litre turbocharged direct-injection petrol engine that works alongside a lithion-ion powered electric motor. It offers a respectable maximum output of 334PS (246kW/329hp).

Jaguar will be heading for the Goodwood Festival of Speed with a plugin hybrid research vehicle based on their XJ sedan. The full label for the pre-production model is the XJ_e plug-in hybrid engineering research vehicle and it is the first step by the brand to offer a more environmental friendly and fuel efficient model in their line-up.

The powertrain consists of 2.0-litre turbocharged direct-injection petrol engine that works alongside a lithion-ion powered electric motor. It offers a respectable maximum output of 334PS (246kW/329hp) which allows it to accelerate from 0-100kph (0-62mph) in 6.5 seconds while top speed is electronically limited at 250kph (155mph).

The XJ Plug-in Hybrid Concept has a zero emissions electric driving range of up to 40km (25 miles) before the range extending gasoline engine kicks in. The overall fuel economy figures come in at an impressive 3.2l/100km (88.3mpg UK / 73.5mpg US) which equates to a possible range of up to 1092 km (679 miles) on a full tank of fuel.

Jaguar are yet to indicate when the XJ Plugin-hybrid will hit production.
