    The only thing better than a Jaguar is, well, a hybrid Jaguar! I've never owned a Jag (and probably never will due to cost) but they're certainly classy vehicles with a sexy look. Glad to see they're going green.

    Too bad it's only a concept, those are a dime a dozen. "195 hp and 295 pound-feet of torque" is pretty respectable for an electric motor though. I'd go with replacing the gas tank, engine and all the other non electric stuff with more batteries. Pure electric is the way to go in my mind...

    That is a super strong car for a plugin

    Let's hope it comes with electronic plug-ins to sound like a '60s E-Type when in all-EV mode (or to drown out the drone of that little 1.2)...

    Shows that despite its much lower volume, Jaguar is intent on playing with the big boys (BMW, Benz) and keeping its technology competitive. Encouraging!

    Hard to go wrong with Lotus engineering, especially when you've got Tata and Jaguar backing it.

    So, a battery-powered Jaguar doesn't sound the least bit discomfiting to anyone?

    I guess we would just have to wait and see how this creation does. Anyway these are exciting times for the auto industry.

    Much more impressive than the hybrid S-Class and 7-series getting launched later this year, and much more exciting than the Volt too.

    I hope the new Jaguar limo really takes off, it will give a lot more class to the limousine sector and it needs it.
