Jaguar Ending Production of Gas Cars Entirely before New EVs Arrive


Mar 4, 2024

Production for Jaguar's internal-combustion vehicles—the F-Pace, E-Pace, and XF—will end in June in preparation for the arrival of three new electric vehicles.

Jaguar will end production of internal combustion cars later this year.

  • According to a report by Road & Track, the manufacturer is planning to hold a supply of its current lineup of gas-powered cars until the arrival of its next-generation electric vehicles.

  • The existing lineup will be replaced in the coming years by three models on a new platform named JEA (Jaguar Electric Architecture,) the first being a four-seat electric GT car.

Jaguar is planning a phoenix-like rebirth as the British automaker executes its plan to become an EV-only manufacturer by 2025. This will involve killing off its current lineup while also shifting towards higher-cost vehicles. This means that the gas-powered XF sedan and E-Pace and F-Pace crossovers will cease production later this year (the F-type sports car already had its swan song for the 2024 model year). Joe Eberhardt, Jaguar Land Rover's North American President and CEO, recently explained the shift to Road & Track.

"The majority of our products cease production in June, but they will be on sale for a much longer time,” Eberhardt told R&T. "We will have a production schedule that enables us to have a continuous supply of vehicles until the new cars come. . .We're trying to time it so we have enough volume to take us through to the launch of the new product and have a clean handover."

For Jaguar to achieve that clean handover, some existing models will need to remain on sale for over a year after production ends until the EVs arrive. The automaker has confirmed three new models planned for the upcoming JEA (Jaguar Electric Architecture) platform, with the first model confirmed to be a four-door GT. The automaker promises we'll see the car before the end of this year, with deliveries starting in 2025. According to Automotive News, JLR CEO Adrian Mardell confirmed during the automaker's earnings call last month that the second new EV model would arrive in late 2025, and the third in 2026.

The unnamed GT (shown in the teaser above) appears to be targeting other high-dollar and high-performance electric sedans like the Porsche Taycan and Audi e-tron GT. When the Jaguar teased the upcoming GT back in April 2023, the company claimed "indicative pricing" of around £100,000, or roughly $127,000 at today's exchange rates. The company hasn't confirmed power figures but has claimed the GT will be the most powerful Jag ever. With the top-trim F-Type producing 575 horsepower, we expect the GT to make somewhere north of 600 ponies. The new car is said to have a maximum range of 430 miles, though that number was likely determined using the European WLTP test. We think the range will be somewhere under 400 miles using the EPA's testing methodology.

Along with the internal-combustion cars, production of Jaguar's aging electric I-Pace crossover will also end by the end of the year. The I-Pace, first introduced in 2018, has a 90.0-kWh battery pack that provides up to 246 miles of range according to EPA ratings—hardly a standout number in today's luxury EV market, especially given the I-Pace's $73,275 starting price.
