Jaguar Land Rover has showcased the India-bound 2015 XE sedan at the 2015 Detroit Motor Show. The XE would launch globally this year, and also hit the Indian roads by the end of 2015, as learnt through our reliable sources. The aluminum-intensive Jaguar XE is the first model developed from the new JLR modular vehicle architecture. It is manufactured at an all-new facility at the Jaguar Land Rover Solihull plant, while sitting below the XF and XJ models in company portfolio.
A true driver's car, the Jaguar XE redefines the concept of the sports sedan thanks to its advanced lightweight construction, streamlined styling, luxurious interior, and outstanding ride and handling. The high-performance S model will be at the top of the global line-up at launch in 2015. The Jaguar XE S model provides responsiveness and refinement from a supercharged 3.0-liter V6 gasoline motor. It generates 340bhp of top power and 450Nm of peak torque, while paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission with paddle shift controls. Accelerating from 0-96.5 kmph in just 4.9 seconds, the XE S has an electronically-limited top speed of 250kmph.
The interior cabin of the all-new XE sedan would offer outstanding levels of comfort and spaciousness. Exquisite materials and finishes, combined with traditional Jaguar craftsmanship make this an interior without compare. The Jaguar XE will be the first company car to be equipped with electric power steering. This system is tuned to provide responsiveness and excellent feel, and offers improved efficiency over hydraulic systems. Ian Callum, Design Director, Jaguar commented on the same, "Our mission was to create an exciting and dynamic design clearly reflecting the XE positioning as a serious driver's car. The cab-rearward proportions and tight packaging achieve that and give the XE the appearance of movement even when it's standing still. It bears a strong family resemblance to the F-TYPE and will stand apart in the crowd."
