Jaguar shows one of the final development mules of the 2015 XE compact sedan

Article by Christian A., on May 19, 2014

After teasing the all-new XE at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, Jaguar released today the first image with one the final development mules. The image was revealed on Jaguar’s twitter account and as you can see from the photo it carries the #FeelXE hashtag as the company started a social media campaign.

For those who don’t know, the 2015 Jaguar XE plans to take on the compact premium segment dominated by German cars such as the BMW 3-Series, Mercedes-Benz C-Class and Audi A4. Jaguar will offer the XE with a new rear and all-wheel-drive aluminum architecture, while under the hood there will be a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine of the company’s new ‘Ingenium’ engine range.

The Ingenium, is Jaguar’s new family of premium, lightweight, low-friction, low-emission four-cylinder petrol and diesel engines. Moreover, Jaguar said that the new Ingenium uses the most flexible engine architecture ever produced buy Jaguar Land Rover.

The new engines will replace the four-cylinder Ford-derived units that are currently used by the Land Rover Freelander and the Range Rover Evoque. When it revealed the first teaser with the 2015 XE, Jaguar said that the new engines are both efficient and powerful, as they are capable to offer speeds of up to 300 km/h (186 mph), while emissions can be lower than 100 g/km of CO2.

This means that a high-performance Jaguar XER-S is also in the works and will offer a top speed of 300 km/h or 186 mph. As a result, we expect a twin-turbo version of the 2.0-liter Ingenium engine that could deliver around 400 hp. Jaguar will debut the all-new XE this Autumn at the 2014 Paris Motor Show.
