Jaguar Quietly Debuts XJ Plug-In Hybrid Concept
Nestled inconspicuously behind the Jaguar C-X75 gas turbine supercar concept in the FoS-Tech area of the 2012 Goodwood Festival of Speed is a Jaguar XJ. But no ordinary XJ... according to the stickers on the side, this one plugs in.
Jaguar was unable to comment when TheChargingPoint.com contacted them this afternoon for details, pending an official statement about the car tomorrow, but the words “Hybrid Electric Plug In” on the side of the show car are a rather clear indication that Jaguar is continuing its development of an electrified version of its flagship saloon.
Reports as early 2009 suggested the carmaker was working on a plug-in XJ using an extended range set-up similar to the Chevrolet Volt, but we'll have to wait until tomorrow for the drivetrain details on this latest effort.
