Jaguar Presents New Teaser Image Of XE, Successor To X-Type
|   Saturday, May 31, 2014
Jaguar is preparing to launch a new sedan in its range, which will be the entry-level model in the British brand's portfolio. We are talking about the XE, the successor to the X-Type, whose prototype was presented in a camouflaged version on the brand's official Facebook account in the United Kingdom.

We can notice a scale version of the XF's silhouette with generously sized side mirrors, and thin optical blocks extended towards the wings, and a side window line, inspired by that of a coupe.
The first information announced a new platform for this model. It is expected the new iQ(Al) platform will be used, with increased structural strength, a very low total mass, and its modulation capacity will allow its use for many body types. Also, the architecture allows the installation of a rear propulsion or four-wheel drive, as well as allowing usage for an electric propulsion system.

The engine range of Jaguar XE will have more four-cylinder units, but it is expected that a supercharged V6 engine, that will have a displacement of 3.0 liters and could deliver 350 hp, might appear. Jaguar could launch the new XE at the Auto Show in Paris, while the commercial debut of the model is likely to come next year.
The exhibit from the teaser image presented by the British has a number of lines drawn on the bodywork, which emphasizes the aluminum chassis of the model, as well as the integrated safety features. Just like X-Type, Jaguar thought out the new XE to fight in the premium segment of the middle class, with models such as the Audi A4, BMW 3 Series, Mercedes-Benz C-Class and Lexus IS.

"It's a logical idea to use the momentum from Land Rover and expand the Jaguar range. Jaguar is less than half the size of Land Rover so they need to do something, plus investors will like a move downscale," said Christoph Stuermer, IHS Automotive research director, on the idea behind the new, more affordable vehicle approach.

Those from Jaguar have declared that the British Ingenium family offers the flexibility to introduce models that can reach a top speed of over 300 km / h, as well as others that emit less than 100 g / km of CO2.

Jaguar will also launch an SUV, a compact sedan and a wagon in 2015. According to sources, the British brand will launch these models using a new platform made of aluminum and the bodywork may likewise have aluminum elements. Commercial debut of the new models will take place in the second half of the year, says Reuters quoted by Automotive News.

The English will invest 4.23 billion dollars every year over the four years to develop new products and production facilities.
In 2012, Jaguar Land Rover signed a contract with a company in Saudi Arabia, specializing in recycling aluminum, to purchase large quantities of aluminum, and will thus provide new platforms at competitive prices, although they have a high level of quality and performance.
