We earlier reported that Jaguar XE would yield a mileage over 25kmpl and thus become the most fuel efficient company vehicle. This time around, new details regarding its interior and infotainment system have emerged. The latest one on the 2015 XE is that it would feature an all new infotainment system with 8-inch touchscreen, dubbed as ‘InControl’. As known, the 2015 Jaguar XE will make its global debut on September 8, 2014 in London.
The brand new InControl system with remote facilitates an individual by smartphone control of functions such as door unlocking or engine start – from anywhere in the world. It also includes seven-day timed pre-setting of the XE’s climate control system. Furthermore, InControl Apps allows users to access Apple and Android smartphone apps through the vehicle’s touchscreen. Also, there is Wi-Fi connectivity for multiple devices inside the saloon. Jaguar InControl Apps allows users to seamlessly access smartphone apps through the vehicle’s touchscreen, making it easy to do everything from make a conference call, find a parking space or book a hotel room. Dr Mike Bell, Jaguar’s Global Connected Car Director said, “In-car technologies in this ever-more connected and fast-paced world are an integral part of your driving experience. With the all-new XE we’re introducing an entire suite of cutting-edge driver aids and entertainment systems. Designed and developed from scratch, they will ensure that every journey you take is simpler, more relaxing, safer, and effortlessly enjoyable.”
The sophistication of the infotainment system is matched by the array of advanced driver assistance systems available in the new XE: the laser head-up display (HUD) is an industry-first. Projecting sharp, high-contrast color images onto the windscreen, the technology provides the driver with information such as speed and navigation instructions with maximum clarity and minimum distraction. As well as better image quality, the laser HUD is smaller and almost a third lighter than existing systems. Designed and engineered in the UK, the aluminium-intensive XE will be the first Jaguar manufactured at a new purpose-built production facility at the company’s Solihull plant in the West Midlands in the UK. It is an India-bound vehicle and would come to India in three variants – the standard XE, XE S and XER-S.
