Jaguar to launch hybrid vehicles by 2013?


Running on a hybrid has become an increasingly frequent option for a lot of car owners these days and with auto makers being quick to realize that the nature of the industry is now evolving, more and more of them are now launching hybrids in favor of fuel guzzling vehicles. And according to a recent report, it looks like those cats from Jaguar are getting ready to pounce on the hybrid market real soon.

According to Car Magazine, Jaguar will launch a hybrid in 2013 or 2014. Details are still a little sketchy, but it looks like the company’s hybrid specs will carry a 3.0-liter V6 turbodiesel engine, a 35 kW (47 hp / 48 PS) electric motor, and an eight-speed ZF automatic transmission.

On their end, Peter Richings, Jaguar and Land Rover’s chief hybrid engineer, has said that when the time comes that they begin the process of building hybrid vehicles, they’re going to be looking at fitting a hybridized transmission on just about any vehicle in the Jaguar fleet that doesn’t fall under the X-Type .

Of course, considering Jaguar is no longer making the X-type, it really doesn’t matter if the hybrid technology can work as easily in its setup. Unless, Jaguar is thinking of bringing the X-type back in the future.

For a hybrid car, I think these car looks great! However, I have a doubt on the performance of its hybrid version since their production version is not that powerful..

Did Jaguar released hybrid vehicles for the past several years? Please enlighten me.

Hybrid for a super car? IMO they just ruin the performance of a super car.

Nice to see Jaguar trying new things with hybrids. I believe their idea is great.

This isn’t an accurate indication of what the XE will look like. First of all this concept was released ages ago, and since then Jaguar’s design language has changed incredibly. It should look great.

Exactly a good idea because I think hybrid vehicles is more prefered in the year 2013, so I think this is also a nice stratgy of the company.

Well that’s new. Let’s see how will the jaguar perform on hybrid one.
