Jaguar XJ will end production in July electric successor possible in 2020

first_img 5 things you need to know about the 2019 Jaguar XJR575 2:54 2019 Jaguar XJR575: A surprising performance value Now playing: Watch this: Tags More about 2019 Jaguar XJR575 Jaguar But don’t expect the XJ to be gone forever. A Jaguar spokesperson told Autocar that the XJ name will live on, although that person declined to offer further details. According to reports, it’s believed that the XJ will return in 2020 as a battery-electric car, which would give it a hefty zero-emissions advantage over other flagships like the Audi A8, BMW 8 Series, Lexus LS and Mercedes-Benz S-Class. However, as of now it’s unclear what competitors’ plans are regarding battery-electric flagship variants.Our last foray with the XJ happened recently, coming in the form of a new top-tier trim called XJR575. Replacing the XJR, this new model uses a 5.0-liter supercharged V8 to produce (surprise, surprise) 575 horsepower and 517 pound-feet of torque. We loved how it drove, and its styling has always been on point, but daily ride comfort and the overall age of the vehicle reminded us it wasn’t a perfect package. That’s one hell of a swan song for the gas-powered XJ, which has existed in some form since 1968.  2019 Jaguar F-Pace SVR first drive: A magnificent beast, indeed Jaguar Enlarge ImageThere are worse ways to sail off into the sunset. Nate Reed/Roadshow The Jaguar XJ is a solid, comfortable cruiser. But about a decade after its unveiling it’s apparently time for Jaguar to chart a new course for its flagship sedan.Jaguar will discontinue production of the current-generation XJ sedan in July, Autocar reports. More than 120,000 XJ sedans have been built since its launch nearly a decade ago, but its current sales have been underwhelming. Here in the US, it was never the most popular seller, but most of 2018 saw monthly sales barely passing the 100-unit mark, numbers not seen since before the latest generation debuted.center_img More From Roadshow 2018 Jaguar XF Sportbrake: Capability and hustle combine Share your voice 0 Review • 2019 Jaguar XJR575: An oldie, but a 575-horsepower goodie 66 Photos Post a comment Sedans Luxury cars Future Cars 2019 Jaguar XE SV Project 8 review: The lovable lunaticlast_img read more

Alien researcher releases footage of UFOs hovering above Wasatch Mountains in Utah

first_imgYouTube: MavixxxConspiracy theorists have long been alleging that aliens from deep space used to visit earth regularly, and most of the time, they will be hiding near mountain ranges and underwater. Adding heat to their claims, an anonymous alien researcher known by the name ‘Mavixxx’ has released a mysterious video that shows two unidentified glowing objects hovering above the Wasatch Mountain ranges in Utah.After uploading the video of the bizarre UFO sighting on YouTube, Mavixxx claimed that the clip was sent to him by a user named Pana Rican. The conspiracy theorist also revealed that the alleged sighting happened on June 04, 2019. In the video which was shot in broad daylight, two unidentified flying objects, one pretty large when compared to the other was seen hovering silently above the ranges.In the same video, Mavixxx has also unveiled several other UFO sightings that happened in the past few months, and out of them, the most interesting one being a clip apparently captured from Edmonton, Canada. In the clip, a jet plane can be seen flying low, and in the meantime, a cylindrical UFO zipped past the flight at an amazing speed.The video uploaded by Mavixxx has already gone viral on the internet, and as of now, it has racked up thousands of views on YouTube. After watching the video, conspiracy theorists outlandishly claimed that these sightings are authentic proofs of alien existence. As per these conspiracy theorists, aliens are building secret bases on mountains, and the activities are carried out with the knowledge of the government and space agencies like NASA.These conspiracy theorists argue that NASA is intentionally covering up the secrets regarding alien life fearing public panic.”The first those are on the other side of those massive mountains and just too far to gain a visual but they are very big and there’s two. In a split second of the frame, I see a fighter jet In the upper right corner. Is there a base nearby?” commented Muttaxe444, a YouTube user.”Thank people like MAVI for creating youtube channels such as this, to tell the truth, that people yearn for,” commented Kalifornia Kid, another YouTuber.last_img read more
