Coming off of the success of the critically acclaimed I-Pace, Jaguar announces the next model in its electrification strategy, the XJ sedan, which will be built at their Castle Bromwich plant in the UK. This news comes as the last of the current generation XJs rolled off the line this week and should be welcome news to the thousands of Jaguar employees, who will help to keep the future of Jaguar's EV manufacturing in the UK. The company has yet to offer a look at the new four-door flagship, but you can expect design and luxury to continue to be a large focus as with the previous eight generations of the XJ. The company has also announced plans to bring battery and Electric Drive Unit assembly to the Midlands with additional investments in new and existing facilities, both of which will not only build components for Jaguar, but Land Rover as well.
