Any idea what this is?

Post by bluenun » Tue Feb 12, 2019 10:33 pm

Whilst driving past Nottingham a couple of nights ago, I was accompanied by a new shape of Jaguar. Intriguingly, according to the UK government website, its CO2 emissions are 0 g/km. It was about the size of an XF, I reckon. Any ideas? The registration plate is VN68XMF.

It has an exhaust pipe, but of course that could just be for show. I doubt Jaguar is working on a new diesel car. The tail lights are horizontal, which is not the XJ design language. Is there a new XF on the horizon?

It might just be a mule that's testing a drivetrain, or something.

The rumours are that they will replace the XF and the XE with a single model with an electric drivetrain. Still a way off yet so probably at the most a test mule.
