The current generation Jaguar XJ has been pulled off the production line making way for the next-generation sedan. The upcoming XJ will be an all-electric car and will be based on the new MLA (Modular Longitudinal Architecture) platform that Jaguar Land Rover has developed for their upcoming cars and SUVs in the near future.

Nick Rogers, JLR's head of product engineering stated that the XJ will be equipped with a 90kWh battery with a range of up to 400-450km. The battery size of the I-Pace is similar, however, the crossover uses its own platform for body construction and hence could have a slightly higher range than the upcoming luxury sedan. The I-Pace's platform will not be phased out.

"We are moving to MLA yes, but that won't be the only platform," said Ian Callum to Auto News. "it would be mad not to evolve the I-Pace platform. It's not the least expensive platform in the world, but the first platform is inevitably going more expensive than the next one." he added.

The production of the current generation XJ ended today at the Castle Bromwich facility. The new EV-sedan will be built at JLR's plant in Solihull.

When the Jaguar XJ all-electric will arrive, it will rival the Audi e-tron and the Tesla Model S which we believe are still in the pipeline.
