The all-new mid-size premium sports sedan from Jaguar will be called the Jaguar XE, announces the company at the ongoing Geneva Motor Show. The company confirmed that it is taking the XE into production.
The XE is based on the C-X17 concept showcased at Frankfurt Motor Show last year and will be the first car from Jaguar featuring engine from a new family of high-output, fuel-efficient petrol and diesel engines named Ingenium.
The four-cylinder, 2-liter petrol and diesel variants of Ingenium will enable Jaguar to offer vehicles with stupendous performance, including 300 km/h XE, as well as lower emission levels. Ingenium will be built at Jaguar-Land Rover facility in the U.K.
The Jaguar XE uses an advanced aluminium architecture providing better handling, performance, refinement and efficiency.
Jaguar says that the new XE will be visually striking, brilliant to run and practical to own – practical as well as being premium. The production version of the XE will be unveiled later this year and the global rollout will begin in 2015.
Jaguar has not disclosed the full technical specs and price range of the XE for now and is expected to come out with it sometime later this year. The lightweight Jaguar XE with its efficient Ingenium engine is expected to be more advanced, efficient and refined sports sedan in its class, which includes the 3 Series from BMW, the A4 from Audi and the C-Class of Mercedes-Benz.
