Types of Jaguar Electric & Plug-in Hybrid Vehicles

Jaguar’s electric and hybrid range provides plenty of choice. From the sporty and compact elegance of hybrid SUVs to the sophistication of an all-electric crossover, you can find a car that fits perfectly with your personality and lifestyle.

With the UK Government introducing legislation that by 2035 all vehicles sold must be zero-emission, the Jaguar Plug-in Hybrid range is a great stepping stone for people who want to experience what living with an electric vehicle is like, but with the reassurance of having a petrol engine to fall back on. Alternatively, the all-electric Jaguar I-PACE with its range of up to 292 miles ticks many boxes for people looking to make the switch. 

Jaguar I-PACE

As the British marque’s first all-electric SUV, the I-PACE represents a significant milestone in Jaguar’s history.

Launched in 2018 and refreshed in 2023, the I-PACE races from 0-62 mph in just 4.5-seconds and can travel up to 292 miles on a single charge. With a four-wheel-drive dual electric motor setup, this powerhouse Jaguar electric SUV offers 395 bhp and 696 Nm of torque and releases zero tailpipe emissions.

Understanding the Distinction: Electric vs. Hybrid Vehicles

Differences Between Jaguar Electric & Plug-in Hybrid Cars

It’s easy to think that electric and hybrid models are the same type of car. After all, they both prioritise ‘greener’ driving and reduce our reliance on unsustainable fossil fuels such as petrol and diesel. But, there are very clear differences between the two.

Jaguar electric cars have an electric motor and a battery. They can be called EVs (Electric Vehicles) or BEVs (Battery Electric Vehicles). Whatever abbreviation you come across, one thing is clear — these cars do not have a combustion engine. The Jaguar I-PACE available from Dick Lovett Melksham is an example.

Jaguar hybrid cars also have an electric motor and battery. But they also have a traditional combustion engine and switch between the two powertrains for optimum efficiency. Typically known as Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEV), hybrid models tend to offer an electric only range for short distances, thereby reducing emissions.

EV models are specifically designed to be driven purely by electric power and have longer electric driving ranges than PHEV vehicles. The battery size tends to be bigger in EV vehicles as more electric power is needed without the backup of a combustion engine. 50kW or above is standard. While the Jaguar I-PACE can manage 292 miles on a single charge, the F-PACE offers an electric only range of up to 33 miles, which is still enough for short journeys, between charges.

Both all-electric and PHEV vehicles need to be plugged into a power socket. Dedicated charging points at home are convenient as you can charge up overnight and make the most of off-peak electricity charges or solar panel energy.

The electric charging infrastructure has also improved massively across the UK, with thousands of charging points now easily accessible on route. Use the Jaguar Charging App to help you find those local to you.

Embrace the Future

Why Buy Jaguar Electric & Plug-in Hybrid Cars?

While the ban on the sale of new petrol and diesel cars has been pushed back until 2035, the phase out of such vehicles is still very much part of the government’s green policies. So, it’s crucial to be ahead of the curve.

Electric and hybrid, or PHEV, cars will very much be the future of motoring and with much-loved marques like Jaguar embracing the greener motoring movement, electric vehicles will see massive innovations over the coming years. Indeed, they’re likely to outshine petrol and diesel models completely as more focus is placed on EV production.

Jaguar Electric and Jaguar Hybrid cars are already wonderfully stylish and benefit from expert craftsmanship. The flagship I-PACE crossover, for example, boasts a sleek headlight design, integrated LED lights, signature ‘J’ blades, and a bold front grille shield.

The sleek charging port is just one of a few indications that this car is electric. Step inside and discover a meticulously crafted interior featuring premium materials, state-of-the-art technology including the PiVi Pro Infotainment system, and a rear load space of over 656-litres.

The electric and hybrid cars retain the style and sophistication you’d expect from the Jaguar line-up. And they drive like a dream too. In fact, electric vehicles tend to offer smoother and faster acceleration. Simply put your foot down and glide into action with minimal noise. Electric cars or hybrid cars in EV mode deliver a quiet, controlled performance. Opt for a hybrid model if you still want to hear the excitable roar of a combustion engine.

The benefits of driving electric

Cost-Saving Benefits of Electric and PHEV Cars

Owning an all-electric or PHEV car can come with cost-saving benefits too. Lower road tax is a massive bonus. Electric cars are exempt until April 2025, although this is prone to change. Hybrids, on the other hand, pay less vehicle tax compared to a petrol or diesel alternative.

As fully electric cars also release no tailpipe emissions, you’ll be fully exempt from Ultra Low Emission Zone charges too. Electric cars, for example, do not need to pay the London Congestion Charge, but must still be registered with Transport For London to drive in the zone.

There are also benefits to business car drivers. Those driving the all-electric I-PACE can enjoy significantly reduced benefit-in-kind (BIK) tax. Not only that, but in the UK, businesses can claim a 100% first-year allowance for electric vehicles until April 2025. This means you can deduct the full cost of the Jaguar I-PACE from your taxable profits in the year of purchase.

While it’s no secret that energy prices have risen in recent years, charging your Electric or Hybrid Jaguar model will still cost less than filling up with petrol or diesel, especially if you take advantage of specialised electric vehicle tariffs and off-peak charging times. If you’ve got solar panels, you can also talk to your provider about charging your car using solar energy to bring costs down even further and reduce your reliance on the National Grid.

Hybrid models require electric power and either diesel or petrol. But seeing as most PHEV vehicles offer a pretty impressive EV range, you will probably make less trips to the pump than you’d expect. So long as your car is charged, you can nip to town, do the weekly shop or pick your children from school, without the combustion engine kicking into action. Speak to our Dick Lovett Jaguar team for more information about electric and hybrid servicing.

Jaguar Electric & Plug-in Hybrid Cars

How Do Jaguar Electric & Plug-in Hybrid Cars Work?

The all-electric Jaguar I-PACE is very different from an internal combustion-engined car.

Instead of a petrol or diesel engine, it features two lightweight, compact and highly efficient Synchronous Permanent Magnet Electric Motors. These are highly efficient at transferring power from the battery to each motor and were inspired by the production of the I-TYPE Formula E racing car.

The motors are axle-mounted and positioned lower in the vehicle for improved handling and a low centre of gravity. The electric motors are quieter and create fewer vibrations than conventional combustion engines and respond immediately to demands. The 90kWh battery is constructed of high energy density lithium-ion pouch cells which support sustained periods of maximum power.

Jaguar’s hybrid models also come with an electric motor and lithium-ion battery, as well as a petrol engine. Both the Jaguar F-PACE hybrid and E-Pace switch between drive systems for optimum efficiency. If you’re driving in all-electric mode and the battery is almost depleted, the car will switch to using the engine, so there’s no interruption in performance. And, when using the engine, it will charge the battery as you drive. 

The E-PACE and F-PACE hybrid also come with three drive modes including Hybrid, EV and Save, depending on the type of journey and economy you require.
