Jaguar Northfield loves supplying the best luxury vehicles to our Chicagoland customers. The excellence and power that Jaguar is known for continues to be an iconic presence on the road. From our premium sedans like the 2019 Jaguar XE to leading five-seat utility vehicles such as the 2019 Jaguar F-PACE, there’s never been a better brand to encompass power and exquisite engineering quite like Jaguar.

And as the years progress, Jaguar is becoming more and more eco-friendly, with hybrid and electric options offering the same majesty, just with less smog. And that’s what brings us here today.

The Jaguar F-TYPE, Jaguar’s gripping series of luxury sports cars, is a true testament to the power of Jaguar. And we’re expecting to see a new edition of F-TYPE models coming in 2021 to join the ranks of the storied vehicle. For the first time, we might be seeing a completely electric Jaguar F-TYPE near Chicago, IL.

There are a few challenges to overcome with turning such a powerhouse into an electric vehicle, however. Batteries that power the car are much heavier than gasoline, so some engineering compromises might be necessary, such as using lighter materials for the body like aluminum or carbon fiber.

Even if we don’t end up seeing a fully electric Jaguar F-TYPE, it’s clear that Jaguar has been leaning toward a more alternate-fueled area for quite a while now. This means we could see a hybrid or plug-in hybrid F-TYPE down the road at some point. The future is exciting; the future is electric.

While we wait for the next big thing from Jaguar, we remain your faithful Northfield, IL Jaguar dealership. Stop in today to let our vehicles take you for a test drive, from the rugged 2019 Jaguar F-PACE to the classic 2019 Jaguar XE. See you soon!
