Jaguar XE unveiled at Earls Court

Last week Jaguar unveiled its new XE sports sedan to dealers and distributors from around the globe in Earls Court, London.
The XE will go on sale in 2015, with the high-performance S model at the top of the range.
The company says the XE S rewards drivers with the responsiveness and refinement of its supercharged 3.0-litre V6. The engine is linked to an eight-speed automatic transmission with paddle shift controls, giving the driver immediate access to the vehicle’s incredible reserves of power. Accelerating to 0-60mph in just 4.9 seconds, the XE S has an electronically-limited maximum speed of 155mph.

It is the first model developed from Jaguar Land Rover’s new modular vehicle architecture and will set the standard for driving dynamics in the midsize segment says the company.
The S model’s large front air intakes, chrome side vents, discreet rear spoiler and optional 20-inch forged alloy wheels hint at the performance potential of Jaguar’s supercharged 3.0-litre V6 petrol engine.
The XE S will be joined by other models powered by highly efficient 2.0-litre, four-cylinder petrol and diesel engines matched to smooth-shifting six-speed manual and eight-speed automatic transmissions. The diesels – part of Jaguar’s all-new Ingenium engine family – provide fuel consumption and CO2 emissions from 75mpg and 99g/km.
The XE is also the lightest, stiffest and most aerodynamic Jaguar saloon yet built. It is also the first Jaguar to be equipped with electric power steering, tuned to provide exceptional responsiveness and feel but with lower energy consumption than hydraulic systems.
It is is manufactured at Jaguar Land Rover’s Solihull plant in an all-new purpose-built facility.
The XE now completes the Jaguar saloon car range sitting below the XF and XJ models.
Full details of the entire XE range will be announced at the Paris Motorshow in October.
