We have seen many spy pics of Jaguar XE and now we have got some more information about power and performance of car. Car will be built in an all new platform. It will be based on an iQ[ AI ] architecture that uses high tech aluminium. Both rear wheel drive and all wheel drive system will be added to the car. Car will have new engines, new chassis designs etc. Ian Callum ,design chief , says,”It is a hugely flexible architecture and we will make full use of it, as there’s no point in just doing one car”.
Rivets and aerospace adhesives are used for building the body chassis. Castings with pressed aluminum sheet make up the body. Car will have almost all high tech features. 4-cylinder 2-litre engine will power the car. This engine is a newly developed one and company says that the engine is “a new family of premium, lightweight, low-friction, low-emission four-cylinder petrol and diesel units.” This engine can be tuned to different modes. This engine can turn the car into a wild cheetah and can go in a maximum speed of 299.33 kmph. Car is also an eco friendly one as it only produces CO2 of 100g/km.
There will be different variants according to the tuning including an high performance one that is capable of producing 400bhp and more! Car will be placed just under the XF model in their product portfolio. Mercedes C-Class,BMW 3 Series, Audi A4 are the competitors for the Jaguar XE. Lowest variant will have a price tag of Rs 29.4 lakh (starting price). We expect the car to be launched next year. For more hot news on Jaguar XE subscribe our free service below!
