Now more than ever we are becoming increasingly concerned about the environmental impact of our cars and how we can help in the fight to ‘go green’.
Jaguar have been working hard on this problem and have since produced a number of electric options across their range of high-end luxury cars for you to enjoy. Thus giving you peace of mind when it comes to emissions, but still that same Jaguar driving experience we know and love.
Jaguar Electric Power - Engine Types
Once you have made the decision to take the electric route (pardon the pun!), the next step is choosing which engine is the right one for you. The Jaguar range offers three choices; all of which have their own benefits of course.
The Pure Electric engine (BEV) - This engine runs solely on electric energy, powered by electric motors and a battery. Jaguars with a pure electric engine produce zero tailpipe emissions and are the most environmentally friendly of all the range if using renewable energy to charge the car. Fully electric cars also produce very little noise, and therefore offer a peaceful driving experience.
The Plug-In Hybrid (PHEV) engine - This engine combines electric energy and an internal combustion engine (sometimes referred to as ICE) to produce its power. For shorter journeys, you can be content in using fully electric power and producing zero emissions, but when going the distance, you can rest assured that you have the petrol performance to fall back on.
The Mild-Hybrid (MHEV) engine - this intelligent Jaguar engine combines efficient Ingenium petrol or diesel power, with a clever underfloor battery. This works to recover energy that would normally be lost when slowing down, and redeploys it to boost power to your engine for increased efficiency. Ideal for those busy commutes where start stop is often needed.
The Jaguar Electric Model Range
So which is the right car for you...
Pure Electric - The Jaguar I-PACE
If it is pure electric power that you want, then look no further than the Jaguar I-PACE. This award-winning fully electric car is a leader in its class and has an electric range of up to 292 miles on a single charge.
There is no need to worry about power with the I-PACE as it has a 0-60mph time of just 4.5 seconds, whilst space wise there has been absolutely no compromise, as the I-PACE can comfortably seat five adults.
The Jaguar I-PACE is a modern take on sustainability and technology combined, and features the latest Jaguar Infotainment system Pivi Pro. Not only does this car ooze luxury, but it has the electric performance to match.
Plug In Hybrid Power - E-PACE & F-PACE
These state of the art models both combine award-winning design and plug-in hybrid technology, to allow for up to 33 miles of electric range - perfect for those shorter journeys. Not only this, but by choosing a plug-in hybrid you can benefit from lower taxation and excise duties, therefore reducing your overall vehicle costs.
Mild Hybrid Technology - E-PACE, F-PACE, XE & XF
If you’re just starting out on your electric journey, then mild-hybrid technology could be the right choice for you, and Jaguar has ensured there is a vehicle for everyone in their electric range.
Four of Jaguar's class-leading line-up come available with mild-hybrid technology. So whether it is a family SUV you fancy, or a sports saloon, the Jaguar XE, XF, E-PACE and F- PACE provide plenty of options to choose from.
All of which include Pivi Pro Infotainment and still provide that sporty, dynamic driving experience we have come to expect from Jaguar, meaning that ‘going green’ can be everything we love and more.
