Could The Brand New, All-Electric Jaguar XJ Look Like This?

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.

    actually looks disappointingly plain. hope it looks a bit more exciting than that.

    • pcurve

      agreed. Very very plain, and borderline cheap looking. They need more signature detailing and character line around the entire car.

    • Matt

      Well considering it was made by some random dude with photoshop, I wouldn’t spend too much time analyzing it.

  • MarkoS

    I think Jaguar will stretch it design chops further.

    • benT

      I hope Jaguar will stretch it design chops further.

  • Mr. EP9

    What cheap render. All electric yet has exhaust pipes. Did the person who made this not know that electric cars don’t have those? And furthermore, it doesn’t look like a Jag, it looks like a Chinese knockoff or something Hyundai/Kia might come up with.

  • Matt

    Seems like the artist was going for a new XF rather than all-electric XJ.

    • MarketAndChurch

      And the XF needs a new body (side profile) too so this render does no Jaguar any favors.

  • That render is ultra-MEH.

  • Bo Hanan

    If it does look like that JAG is in trouble.

  • Bash

    Looks sleek and very nice render. As others said, this is kinda mix between the xj and the xf

  • MarketAndChurch

    It’s the body of the XF and XE that is holding Jag back, so they need to fix the side profile. These Autocar renders look way better, and address this issue head on. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/f923738a5c8fdc94c1a5c73e75604883624e233ccb12e2dc0b6e3a24d3bf745e.jpg

  • xrnzaaas

    I hope it won’t look like a stretched XF.

  • charlotteharry57

    Boy, does that ever look bland and tame compared with the outgoing one. Guess the Brits thought the ’19 and prior were too much.

  • Jason Panamera

    I hope not. It’s just current XJ with ,,some new” design elements.

  • Piotr B

    It look too asian.
    And it’s not a good thing while speaking about Jag

  • Adam Bernard

    Doubtful. Jaguar’s design chief said the new car would not be conventional–and this rendering, while attractive, doesn’t take advantage of the proportions afforded by an electric drivetrain.

  • Eric D

    If yes, it would be dismal failure as the design zero innovation or style.

  • designer_dick

    The only part of that render that’s even close to accurate are the rear lights, everything else is so far off the mark it’s barely even worth talking about.

  • ksegg

    lol what the heck is this……

  • Sjaak

    couldbe couldbenot, but what is the point making a rendering with so little differences from existing models ?

  • stanrooney

    It’s like a bland Audi, devoid of any attractive styling feature – Jaguar were leaders in gorgeous cars, but then Im old and as time passes there are fewer if any cars that are practical and want to own

  • botornot387

    This looks awful. hope the actual product is not like this render if Jaguar wants a successful product, and with their other offerings cant think they would take this approach. They have said repeatedly this would be one of their most emotive products. this render makes it doa
