 XJ e_plug-in hybrid debuts at Goodwood

Jaguar Land Rover has unveiled its XJ_e engineering research vehicle at the Goodwood Festival of Speed – an experimental plug-in hybrid version of its luxury Jaguar XJ saloon, powered by Axeon. The battery provides the Jaguar XJ_e with a range of up to 40 km (25 miles) on electric power.

The XJ_e demonstrator, which is on static display at the Goodwood Festival of Speed from 28th June to 1st July, uses a lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4) battery from Axeon, Europe’s largest independent supplier of lithium-ion battery systems.

The luxury plug-in hybrid battery is a 12.3kWh-capacity 307V system, which weighs in at 159kg. The battery pack makes use of the latest lithium iron phosphate pouch cells in liquid-cooled/heated self-contained modules for optimum battery management and safety.

The demonstrator vehicle is a result of a collaborative R&D project funded by the Technology Strategy Board intoRange Extended Electric Vehicles (REEV) and Plug-in Hybrids Electric Vehicles (PHEV).

Lawrence Berns, CEO, said: “We were delighted to be involved in this project, which is all about pushing the UK supply chain’s expertise in low carbon vehicles and technologies that will be in demand from the global market.

“The successful conclusion of the XJ_e demonstrator project proves Axeon’s ability to meet the needs of a complex and demanding OEM application, which crucially was delivered on time and on budget. We are proud to see Axeon battery technology on display at Goodwood Festival of Speed once again and look forward to the XJ_e being seen in action later this year.”
