The next-generation XJ will be sold exclusively with an all-electric powertrain, and these renderings from Kolesa show what the new luxury sedan may look like.
Jaguar has only released a single teaser image of the new XJ, during the Land Rover Defender’s live unveiling at the Frankfurt Motor Show. It previewed the car’s new taillights design and these renderings use that as a reference point for the rest of the exterior.
At the rear, the LED units will be joined together by a single light bar sitting just below a pair of Jaguar badges. Also depicted is a piece of chrome trim sitting just above the tailpipes similar in shape to the taillights. The front of the new XJ has also been clearly influenced by the rear, with sharp new LED healights and an enlarged grille.
It is assumed that the new XJ won’t look radically different than its predecessor, and if that is indeed the case, then these renderings could actually give us a good idea of how the new Jag may look.
Underpinning the new XJ will be Jaguar’s Modular Longitudinal Architecture, which is expected to feature a 90.2 kWh battery pack that’s good for up to 292 miles (470 km) of range. This platform also supports individual electric motors for each wheel, so it’s possible the XJ will launch with such a setup, most likely sometime next year.
