Jaguar has released a new teaser video of the 2015 XE. While the clip doesn’t reveal much, the car will be unveiled on September 8th next week and feature a familiar design that borrows cues from the XF and XJ sedans.
As already reported by us, Jaguar will be using the new Ingenium range of engines on the upcoming models. This new turbo-diesel engine architecture boasts of being a modular setup that can be scaled up or down depending on the capacity and cylinder-configuration requirement. Each cylinder has a capacity of 500cc. A 2.o liter four pot motor will debut XE. Jaguar hints that a 1.5-litre, three-cylinder and a 3.0-litre, six-cylinder motor are also being considered for other Jaguar – Land Rover vehicles.
Jaguar has already confirmed that XE will come with the F-type’s supercharged V6 engine. The XE will also spawn a SVR under Jaguar’s new project. Rumoured to feature the F-type’s 5.0-litre supercharged V8 engine under its hood, the XE SVR is said to churn out a whopping 500PS/600Nm, which will give the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG and the BMW M3 a run for their money.
The Jaguar XE India launch will happen sometime next year.
