The hybrid will likely feature a 3.0-liter V6 turbodiesel engine, a 35 kW (47 hp / 48 PS) electric motor, and an eight-speed ZF automatic transmission.

According to a recent report, Jaguar will launch a hybrid in 2013 or 2014.

While details are limited, Car Magazine is reporting the hybrid will likely feature a 3.0-liter V6 turbodiesel engine, a 35 kW (47 hp / 48 PS) electric motor, and an eight-speed ZF automatic transmission.

The first hybrid is expected to be the XJ, but Jaguar-Land Rover's chief hybrid engineer Peter Richings stated the hybridized transmission can fit into any vehicle with a longitudinal layout. This means virtually every Jaguar (with the exception of the X-type) can use the system.

More importantly, Jaguar is considering range-extending hybrids. Like the Chevrolet Volt, these models would use an electric motor, a lithium-ion battery pack, and a small petrol (or diesel) engine generator. When the batteries are depleted, the engine would turn on to recharge them and simultaneously provide power to the electric motor.
