Jaguar to End Production of Gas-Powered Models by June 2024 in Shift to All-Electric Lineup

Jaguar is preparing for a monumental shift in its production lines, announcing this week that it will halt the production of its gas-powered models by June 2024. This move is part of Jaguar’s plan to transition into an EV-only brand by 2025, marking a significant pivot from its traditional lineup of internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles.

The transition includes the end of production for the I-Pace, Jaguar’s first electric model introduced in 2018, by the end of 2024, according to statements made by Jaguar Land Rover North American CEO Joe Eberhardt to Road & Track (via Automotive News Europe). This move highlights Jaguar’s commitment to reinventing its electric offerings, with the I-Pace serving as a stepping stone towards a more advanced and exclusively electric lineup.

The end of the F-Pace, E-Pace, and XF models is a prelude to the launch of Jaguar’s next-generation electric vehicles (EVs). The company has disclosed plans for three new EVs set to be built on the Jaguar Electric Architecture (JEA) platform.

The first among these is a four-seat electric GT car, teased with a potential output of more than 600 horsepower and a range of 430 miles (according to the European WLTP testing cycle), promises to be the most powerful Jaguar ever produced.

With a targeted price around £100,000, this vehicle is positioned to compete with high-end electric sedans like the Porsche Taycan and Audi e-Tron GT.

Jaguar’s transition strategy involves a calculated wind-down of its current gas-powered models while ensuring a continuous supply of vehicles until the new electric models are ready for market. This approach is designed to ensure a smooth transition for both the manufacturer and its customers.
