LONDON – Nov 8, 2012: Axeon has congratulated Jaguar Land Rover after its Jaguar XJ_e plug-in hybrid advanced research project won two awards at last weekend’s RAC Future Car Challenge. The Jaguar XJ_e uses a 12.3kWh battery pack from Axeon to drive a 69kW motor, in conjunction with a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine.

The Jaguar XJ_e was awarded as Most Energy Efficient Luxury Car in the prototype class and also received the Royal Automobile Club Technical Panel’s Award of Merit. The Axeon battery pack provides the Jaguar XJ_e with an electric range of 25 miles and helps the car achieve CO2 emissions of less than 75g/km.

Lawrence Berns, Managing Director of Axeon, said: “We are delighted to have played a part in Jaguar Land Rover’s double award at the Future Car Challenge, particularly being recognised for technical achievement. The XJ_e is proof of Axeon’s ability to provide battery solutions for a diverse range of vehicles, in this case a luxury hybrid.”
