The new Jaguar XE premium will be on sale in 2015… and this is what it will look like!
Pictured is the XE with pop singer Emeli Sandé who is going to write a song to go with the 3 Series rival’s promoting in London on September 8.
Sandé’s song will form part of an audio-visual display that will be seen and heard across the Thames, as well as actor Idris Elba and fashion designer and daughter of Paul, Stella McCartney; all three notably British talents.
Fiona Pargeter the PR Director for Jaguar Land Rover, commented: “XE is a very special car and we wanted to ensure it had a very special launch. We are very excited to be working with such amazing global talent to create interesting and engaging experiences that we can share around the world.
“Emeli is an incredible artist and one who embodies the creativity and elegance that is at the heart of the Jaguar brand and the new XE.”
Jaguar has teased profile shots and details on its bodywork and ride qualities but this latest image provides the biggest clue to the XE’s looks.
The XE will be the rival of the Audi A4 and BMW 3 Series when it goes on sale in 2015. It will also see Jaguar re-enter the premium mid-size saloon segment since the X-Type was dropped in 2009.
Company car drivers will have a two litre diesel option, offering 75+mpg and CO2 emissions of 99g/km.
The XE will as well get the same 335hp V6 supercharged three-litre petrol currently available in the entry-level F-Type, which can do a 0-60mph sprint in five seconds.
An XER-S could also surface in 2016 which uses a 542bhp five-litre V8 engine, able of exceeding 186mph.
Prices of the Jaguar XE are expected to start from £30k.
