Report: Is Jaguar prepping a plug-in hybrid version of the XE?

The Jaguar XE has been the cat out of the bag for quite some time now, being the automaker’s first truly bonafide competitor to the BMW 3-Series, Audi A4, the Merc C-Class, and so-on.

But one of the increasing trends lately, if you’ve been living under a rock, is the electrification of these entry-level luxo-sedans. For instance, Audi, Mercedes, and BMW have rather aggressive plans and ideas to add plug-in hybrid capabilities on these cars as influences like Tesla Motors continue to impact the market.

That means Jaguar might be in the process of doing the same thing, adding plug-in hybrid capabilities to their new XE. This is further bolstered by the fact that some spy-photographers for AutoBlog may have saw a test-mule running about.

Jaguar-Land Rover once announced plans once before to start including more and more EV-powertrains in their lineup, meaning they’re currently under development.
