Jaguar will be putting the spotlight on their XJ hybrid Limo Green which will go on display in Stuttgart by next week. The 2011 Limo Gren will have a hybrid powertrain similar to the Chevy Volt’s and developed in collaboration with Caparo, MIRA, and Lotus.
The XJ based hybrid limo will make use of 145 kW electric motor with a torque of 295 pound feet. The electric motor depends on a pack of lithium battery which gives it at least 30 kilometers and a max of 50 kilometers when it is fully charged.
Once the battery pack is depleted, the Lotus developed 1.2L 3-cylinder gasoline engine does all the work for the next 970 kilometers of 600 miles.
The Jaguar prototype has a combined fuel mileage of 47 mpg with a CO2 emission of 120g/km.
The Green Limo is a one-off concept but Jaguar is planning to use the technology for its future models.
