Jaguar XJ_E Plug-in Hybrid

The Jaguar XJ_e is a prototype plug-in hybrid that was launched to at least partially replace diesel engines as far as fuel consumption and performance are concerned. Jaguar feels that this new vehicle could in fact replace their 5.0 V8 engine. The issue is that this may not be easily accomplished anytime soon, with any great success.

Today's hybrids have been steadily evolving from vehicles for urban families to those that are luxury sedans. It's not easy to compare the comfort of a traditional V8 engine in a spacious sedan to the hybrid engines that might eventually replace it. Jaguar would prefer not to fall behind, especially since many major brands already have hybrids beyond the prototype stage. If the Jaguar XL is to have a hybrid model, it should complement the power from the range of the 275 and 510 gasoline and diesel horsepower.

Jaguar as a company does believe that sometime in the future, mechanical hybrids with four-cylinder diesel engines could replace the V8. A 2.0 4-cylinder gas engine with turbocharged power and direct fuel injection is used now in Range Rover's Evoque, and this will be the heart of the new Jaguar XJ_e, as well. The motor is now used in the Evoque with an 8-speed automatic transmission. The new aspect would be an electric motor that connects to a battery pack with about half the power of the one found in the Nissan Leaf.

The hybrid plug-in can be recharged in any 220 volt outlet, and the XJ_e would consume about 3.2 liters per 100 kilometers', with a much lower emissions rate while using maximum electrical power. The performance of the Jaguar XJ_e is not poor. You can go from zero to 100 km per hour in six and a half seconds, which is less than it takes the 275 CV diesel to make the same 100 km per hour. The top speed of the new Jaguar is limited electronically to 250 km/hr.

Even though the XJ_e is a prototype model, it not unlike the Range Rover that has been seen in the past few years. But from the looks of the competition, Jaguar will need to push their hybrid model to production, if it wants to compete with companies like Audi, which has already released the A8 hybrid.

Jaguar's XJ_e has been designed to help in the development of the company's low-carbon, best in class premium vehicles. The vehicle follows research from other hybrids like the Range_e and Limo Green vehicles. It's an experimental model of the luxury XJ sedan, and Jaguar is using the vehicle to demonstrate how a parallel plug-in type hybrid can deliver lower C02 emissions without having less performance ability.

The XJ_e is powered by a lithium iron phosphate Axeon battery. The system uses a motor/generator combination and a lithium iron based battery pack, which you can fully charge by using a 240-volt power source for about four hours.

Having a parallel design allows the XJ_e to run on electricity, gas or a combination of these two. The car possesses an intelligent system to manage energy, and this system determines the most efficient mode to use at any given time, allowing you to increase your mileage and reduce your carbon footprint.
