and refined sports sedan in its class
- The new range of high-output, fuel-efficient petrol and diesel engines will be named Ingenium. The Jaguar XE
will be the first user of the Ingenium engines in four-cylinder two-litre petrol and diesel variants. They will be
built at Jaguar Land Rover's new UK Engine Manufacturing Facility
- The full engine line-up will enable Jaguar to offer vehicles with class-leading performance, including top speeds of
over 300km/h (186mph), and emissions lower than 100g of CO2 per km
Jaguar confirms that it will bring an all-new mid-size sports sedan to production; and it be known as the XE.

Speaking at the Geneva Motor Show Dr Ralf Speth, Chief Executive Officer, Jaguar Land Rover, confirmed: “We
announced just a few weeks ago 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.”
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 roll-out will begin in 2015, and it will be the first aluminium monocoque vehicle in the
segment. It brings Jaguar customers 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 – including top speeds of over 300km/h (186mph), and emissions lower than 100g of CO2
Kevin Stride, Jaguar's Vehicle Line Director for XE, said: "The engineering development of the XE has focussed on
delivering customers with the most advanced, efficient and refined sports sedan in its class. We are excited about our
progress to date and are looking forward to soon being able to demonstrate what we have achieved."
Ian Callum, Director of Design, said: "The new Jaguar XE is every bit a modern Jaguar; more compact in size but
visually striking. Customers will expect a great deal from a mid-size Jaguar - it must be practical but premium. We never
forget we are designing a Jaguar and that means it must be as exciting to look at and drive as it is brilliant to run and
practical to own. We believe we we’ve done just that with the Jaguar XE.”
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.
