Two big-league nameplates are about to be retired. Struggling sales of the Audi TT means that it’s going to be replaced by an ‘emotive’ electric car. If it isn’t an SUV with a silly bodykit we’ll be surprised. The TT’s death is a couple of years away, but Jaguar’s XJ ultra-barge only has a matter of days left.
Just 301 XJs were sold last December, compared to 4492 F-Paces, so that great name is dead after 51 years. As with the Audi, the XJ’s replacement will be electric.
