2015 Jaguar XE, first presentation
2015 Jaguar XE, first presentation
London, 8th September, 2014 - The Jaguar XE has been revealed to the world
during a star-studded event held at Earl’s Court, London.
A true driver’s car, the rear-drive Jaguar XE redefines the concept of
the sports saloon thanks to its advanced lightweight construction,
streamlined styling, luxurious interior, and outstanding ride and handling.
The XE goes on sale in 2015, with the high-performance S model at the top
of the range.
The XE S rewards drivers with the responsiveness and refinement of its
supercharged 3.0-litre V6. Generating 340PS and 450Nm of torque, this
high-revving engine is linked to an eight-speed automatic transmission with
paddle shift controls, giving the driver immediate access to the
vehicle’s incredible reserves of power. Accelerating to 0-60mph in just
4.9 seconds, the XE S has an electronically-limited maximum speed of
High-efficiency 2.0-litre Ingenium diesel: 75mpg, 99g/km CO2
Aluminium-intensive monocoque – the first in the mid-size segment
Exhilarating performance, precise handling, supple ride
Dynamic design, classic rear-drive stance
Lightest and stiffest Jaguar saloon yet
Most aerodynamic Jaguar ever made: Cd 0.26
Intuitive new InControl infotainment system
Intelligent Active Safety technologies to support the driver
Low cost of ownership: highly competitive fuel economy, emissions,
insurance ratings, service intervals and residual values
Indicative pricing for the XE range: from £27,000
The first Ingenium engines to come off the line are 2.0-litre four-cylinder
diesels. Clean combustion, variable Exhaust valve timing and sophisticated Exhaust gas aftertreatment ensure Euro 6
compliance and take the XE’s CO2 emissions as low as 99g/km in the case
of the 163PS/380Nm variant*. More powerful versions will be available too,
combining exceptional fuel economy and even greater responsiveness.
The 2.0-litre turbocharged direct
injection petrol engines are powerful and refined and generate strong
torque from low speeds, ensuring excellent launch performance and mid-range
response. Two ratings will be available in the XE, and both will be offered
with a lighter version of the ZF 8HP automatic used in the rest of the
Jaguar range: this benchmark eight-speed transmission is controlled using
Jaguar’s unique rotary shift selector. Ingenium diesels will also be
available with a highly efficient six-speed manual – low viscosity oil
and pseudo dry-sump lubrication cut parasitic losses. All of the XE’s
transmissions are characterised by exceptionally smooth, quiet shifts.
The XE is the first car in the world to be equipped with All Surface
Progress Control (ASPC). This all-new system, developed with the input of
decades of Jaguar Land Rover experience in off-road traction systems, works
like a low-speed cruise control. ASPC functions between 3.6km/h and 30km/h:
by precisely controlling the brake system and the powertrain it delivers
optimum traction in the most slippery conditions without skidding and
without the driver using the pedals.
Jaguar is one of the first manufacturers in the segment to use stereo
camera technology. This state-of-the-art sensor is the ‘eyes’ of the
XE’s autonomous emergency braking system, providing highly accurate
measurements of speed and distance of objects ahead, and can initiate full
braking to avoid or mitigate a collision.
The stereo camera performs traffic sign recognition and lane departure
warning functions too. The XE also offers systems such as adaptive cruise
control, closing vehicle sensing, blind spot monitoring, semi-automated
parallel and bay parking, and reverse traffic detection.Full details of the
entire XE range will be announced at the Paris Motorshow in October.

Vector W2 Twin Turbo Tribute (Slide show)
This is a quick look at - & a tribute to - the first real American
full-blown Supercar; the Vector W2- it's ultra brilliant concept & specs
were matched by an unbelievably huge bad luck- it's striking looks &
amazingly forward thinking ( Kevlar body, heads-up-display, flush-fitting
windows & wind shield, jet fighters supplied dashboard instruments, 5 point
safety belt- all in the 1980's- just to name a few) did not help in
offsetting the bad circumstances which led to it not being built until more
than 10 years later than it's projected start (in the shape of the slightly
luckier "W8"). The "W2", & in the eighties, en-visioned 2007 supercar
performance figures of 200 MPH & 600 plus HP, in the days when Lamborghinis
& Ferraris only dreamed of 180 MPH & 400 HP. If there were to be a list of
the "Automobiles' history most unlucky icons " , The "W2", & it's
forward-thinking designer "Gerald Weigert" surely would be on the top of
that list. The "W2" was so forward- thinking that, you'd think it came 20
years so early. These days, rumours of a new Vector in the pipeline to be
created yet again by Mr. "Weigert" are so strong, Vector lovers could
actually taste it...here's to hoping...
