Jaguar turning ethical?

With the recession in full force now, and global warming increasing, what would people to think to a hybrid Jaguar?
Toyota seem to be doing really well since they have introduced the hybrid range, BUT do you think this would work on a luxury car such as Jaguar?

Jaguar already sells a high mpg diesel in Europe that would be a better choice than a hybrid. IIRC, they managed to pull around 60 mpg out of the twin turbo diesel Jag XJ while driving at 70-80 mph across Europe and England on Top Gear...

Most people don't buy the higher end jags for their fuel economy, so a hybrid would be good for making a political/social statement. It seems to be working for Lexus, though.
