2015 Jaguar XE, the ultra-luxurious Briton, is going to make its global debut on 8th September, 2014. Prior to its much anticipated premiere some new information has emerged out regarding the fuel efficiency of the saloon. It is being disclosed that it would yield a fuel efficiency of around 25 kmpl.
The company claims that India-bound Jaguar XE would return a mileage of around 75mpg, which if converted into kmpl comes equivalent to 25kmpl. It would also, subsequently, lower down the CO2 emissions up to 100 g/km. The lightweight architecture of the saloon attributes the most in its fuel efficiency as it is mainly constructed of aluminium. Furthermore, the company has also used RC 5754, a high strength material which comprises of high level of recycled stuff.
2015 Jaguar XE would borrow the front suspension from the F-type while featuring an integral link rear suspension and the company’s latest electric power steering unit (EPAS). Under the hood, this Brit would flaunt Jaguar’s newest engine family, the Ingenium. We expect the saloon to hit the Indian shores by the mid of next year.
Dr. Mark White, Jaguar’s Chief Technical Specialist, said, “The Jaguar XE body uses over 75% aluminium content, which far exceeds any other car in its class. This gives us a body structure with unrivalled low weight: it’s light but also immensely strong with extremely high levels of torsional stiffness. We’ve made sure our aluminium-intensive body structure exceeds all global safety standards without compromising on vehicle design or refinement.”
