Jaguar Hints At Electric F-Type, Confirms Future EVs Will Have Up To 272 Miles Of Range

Jaguar Land Rover has revealed an assortment of details about their future product lineup.

During a presentation earlier this month, the company said their new Modular Longitudinal Architecture will be launched on a “large SUV and a large premium sedan.” The company didn’t go into specifics, but the models are believed to be the next-generation Range Rover and Jaguar XJ.

Automotive News reports the next XJ will be launched as an electric vehicle, with a V6-powered variant arriving sometime afterwards. That remains unconfirmed, but JLR’s presentation confirmed there were be mild-hybrid, plug-in hybrid and electric versions of their upcoming X-Series sedans.

More specifically, Jaguar Land Rover’s presentation revealed that electric vehicles based on the MLA platform will have a 90.2 kWh battery pack which will give them a range of up to 292 miles (470 km). The presentation also revealed plug-in hybrid variants based on the architecture will have a 13.1 kWh battery and an electric-only range of up to 31 miles (50 km).

Speaking of Jaguar, future Pace models will gain mild-hybrid, plug-in hybrid and electric powertrains. The company also revealed the future F-Type will have mild-hybrid and conventional powertrains. More interestingly, the company alluded to a possible electric variant by putting a question mark next to their EV logo.

On the Land Rover side of things, both the Range Rover and Discovery families will offer mild-hybrid, plug-in hybrid and electric variants. However, the upcoming Defender won’t follow this trend. Despite rumors of an electric model, JLR’s presentation only confirmed mild-hybrid and plug-in hybrid variants.

    Seems like a great excuse for bringing back the E Type name but in this case E will stand for Electric, the F type could be the Fuel (petrol) type.
