(MENAFN Press) Amman, April 2014 - Leading manufacturer of premium luxury vehicles, Jaguar Land Rover (JLR), has confirmed plans to bring an all-new mid-size sports sedan to production; the Jaguar XE



The Jaguar XE will be the first product from the new, advanced aluminium architecture which was showcased in the C-X17 concept car in 2013. Its global rollout will begin in 2015, and it will be the first aluminium monocoque vehicle in the segment. It combines all the benefits of aluminium: lightness and stiffness for unbeatable handling, performance, refinement and efficiency. The new engine and aluminium chassis complement each other perfectly



Power will be provided by engines with a wide range of capacities and output, all delivering inspirational performance and offering the latest innovations in fuel-efficient technologies without sacrificing drivability



Utilising the most flexible engine architecture ever produced by Jaguar Land Rover with an advanced design configured to suit in-line and transverse installations for rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive configurations, the new engines will be both efficient and powerful - allowing top speeds of over 300km/h (186mph) and emissions lower than 100g of CO2 per km



Speaking at the Geneva Auto Show, Dr. Ralf Speth, Chief Executive Officer of Jaguar Land Rover, commented, "Just a few weeks ago, we announced that our new Engine Manufacturing Centre would produce a new family of premium, lightweight, low-friction, low emission, four-cylinder petrol and diesel units. The first of our Ingenium engine range will be used in our all-new mid-sized Jaguar sports sedan. That car will be called the Jaguar XE, and it will be unveiled in production form later this year.



In turn, Abdimajid Haithar, General Manager of Mahmoudia Motors - the sole and official dealer of the Jaguar Land Rover brand in Jordan - stated, "We are excited to see how the Jaguar XE will combine power and practicality, and are confident that it will be largely popular among our Jordan-based customers who are on the lookout for unparalleled refinement in terms of both performance and design.



The name of the Jaguar XE follows a logical progression, positioned alongside the XF and XJ saloons in the range. Full XE technical and range details will be announced later in 2014. The global roll-out will begin from mid 2015
