If the motor's electric, will Jagyouare go with a mechanical fuel pump?

/Buy two - one to keep at the repair shop and one to park at home.

Most electric cars water-cool their motors. So, the new Jag can totally piss out coolant and smoke the motor windings. Problem solved!

Is it still technically an electrical car when the entire electric system malfunctions?

I had a rented Jaguar when I had my car stolen. Well, I actually went through three of them. The first one speed turning on, and the second one decided that it needed to open and close the sunroof repeatedly while it was pouring out.

Holy crap they were terrible. And none of those Jaguars even tried to eat my face!

I wouldn't say no to one.

Though they appear to have forgotten door handles.

It just took them a little time to figure out how to make the batteries rust.

Not so CSB: I worked in radio long ago, and a co-worker told me once that the company is very anal about pronouncing their name "Jag-Gwu-Are", and they will give an announcer an angry call if they cut a spot and call it "Jag-Whar".

I called my Dad's the Shag-wire.

It was nice to drive, smoothest thing I've ever driven on the road but it needed quite a bit of maintenance, though it was bought used...

He loved to drive his electric car...

...nah, not quite the same ring to it.

Well, you can't leave without this:

It will be available in 55 gallon drums for the fully electric cars.

Trust me, you definitely want your smoke to leak. The alternative is worse
 
2018-03-03 02:38:36 AM  
I assume that it's equipped with lithium ion batteries so it can still overheat frequently.

Leaking *anything* in a British car is actually a good sign, because if it's not leaking, that means it's empty.

If you give it a good thrashing it might work...

And it's selling like hot cakes! Jaguar learned this from Porsche.

While the jokes are lol worthy, I feel compelled to point out that Jaguar was under Ford ownership for some time. The Mondeo, which is one of the more common models of Ford in the UK, is the same platform as the X-Type.

/Yeah, call me Buzz Killington.

The Lucas electrics will take care of the smoke part, but the earl leak will take more time to develop.

Fun Fact:  Jaguar started life as "The Swallow Sidecar Company".

They changed the name to Jaguar during World War II because for some rrason their "SS" logo fell out of favour.

Well, to be fair, the Swallow Sidecar Company did invade Poland.
