I'm not so sure about that. The original article makes sure to use the words "pure electric" many times, assumedly referring to electric-only vehicles. They also mention thinning out the lineup. Right now Jaguar only offers 5 vehicles: XF, F-Type, F-Pace, E-Pace and I-Pace (XE and XJ were discontinued), and one of them is already an EV. Cutting the range further means that one EV platform could easily provide enough for the small amount of vehicles they are planning on. Their other half, LR, will be slower to adapt to an all EV lineup, with LR being the "electrified" brand, having 60% of the lineup by 2030 being full electric.

Recently Jag's talked about their future in going upmarket, and has mentioned bringing out a singular EV platform for all their vehicles that is bespoke to Jaguar.

It seems that they know that they are living in the shadow of Land Rover who's enjoyed success where Jaguar hasn't, and hence this change is possibly in hopes of differentiating Jaguar from LR, and making the brand more unique.
