MAKE IT YOURS

Find your own electrifying combination of Jaguar performance, technology and style.

WLTP (Worldwide harmonised Light vehicle Test Procedure) is the new process that has been phased in from 2017, which measures fuel, energy consumption, range and emissions in passenger vehicles in Europe. This is designed to provide figures closer to real-world driving behaviour. It tests vehicles with optional equipment and with a more demanding test procedure and driving profile.

Official EU test figures from manufacturer tests under EU legislation. For comparative purposes only. Real-world figures and overall EV performance data may vary according to driving and environmental variables.

Performance data not applicable to models sold in China.
