Autocar seems to think so. According to the article, which has been extensively quoted elsewhere, Jaguar will launch the new XJ this year, for deliveries next year. The car will be a brand new design, and will feature 5 doors. According to Ian Callum, “The very idea of the saloon needed to be reinvented in the face of electrification, the rise of the SUV and the unexpected acceptance of hatchbacks in the US due to Tesla.”
That leaves just one question: Would you buy one?
