Jaguar Plans Shift to Electric Vehicles by 2025

Jaguar is the latest automaker to say it will cease building gasoline and diesel engines, but the small British brand’s announcement has set an unusually aggressive target start date: 2025.

That’s the year when Jaguar says it will begin shifting away from gas and diesel engines as it plans to electrify its cars, with a goal of dropping gas engines entirely by 2030 and shifting its operations to be carbon-neutral by 2039.

The year 2025 may be close, but Jaguar is a small brand and its ability to pivot to making vehicles without tailpipe emissions will be easier than a giant automaker like General Motors, which has said it will transition toward all-electric for most models by 2035.

The shift at Jaguar may start at the top with a new full-size model that could revive the long-running XJ luxury sedan. Jaguar currently offers just one electric model, the roughly $70,000 I-Pace. A new all-electric XJ sedan had been planned for launch as early as the end of 2021, though Jaguar said that model has been shelved.

Sister brand Land Rover — which outsells Jaguar by about four to one in the U.S. — offers several hybrid vehicles but no pure electric model. However, Land Rover is poised to introduce its first all-electric model in 2024. The electric Land Rover will share its underpinnings with Jaguars, though the automaker hasn’t said what form it might take.
