2015 Jaguar XE gets a Superhero print from Stella McCartney

Article by Andrew Christian, on September 22, 2014

As part of the Feel XE campaign, Stella McCartney OBE and Jaguar teamed up in order to mark the arrival of the new 2015 Jaguar XE at the 2014 Paris Motor Show. As you can see from the photos, the vehicle was dressed in Stella McCartney’s Spring 2015 Superhero print. People who live in Paris will be able to see these kind of vehicles on the streets on Monday 29 September.

If you don’t remember, the 2015 Jaguar XE made its debut earlier this month and it is company’s new rival for the BMW 3-Series Sedan and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class Sedan. The vehicle made its debut with the new Ingenium 2.0-liter four-cylinder diesel that produces 163 hp and 380 Nm of torque, bolted to a six-speed manual transmission or an optional automatic gearbox.

The diesel engine promises a fuel consumption of just 3.7 l/100 km (75 mpg), with CO2 emissions of just 99 g/km. A 2.0-liter turbocharged direct injection petrol engine will be available too, mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission developed by ZF.

The 2015 Jaguar XE S will use a 3.0-liter V6 petrol engine that delivers 340 hp and 450 Nm of torque, enough to push the vehicle from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 5.1 seconds (0-60 mph in 4.9 seconds), with a top speed limited at 144 mph or 250 km/h.

Jaguar is planning an XE SVR, in order to take on the BMW M3 Sedan and the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Sedan, powered by a supercharged 5.0-liter V8 producing around 500 hp.

Jaguar Reveals its New Superhero - Jaguar and Stella McCartney Bring the New XE to Paris

Ahead of Stella McCartney's Paris Fashion Week Show on 29 September, Jaguar has joined forces with the leading British designer for the next phase of the FEEL XE campaign as the roll-out of the new Jaguar XE continues. Both Stella and Jaguar represent the best in British design and have a shared commitment to modernity, performance and innovation, and the FEEL XE Experience is an expression of this design philosophy.

The FEEL XE Experience marks the next phase in the XE reveal, where Jaguar will announce full details of the entire XE range at the Paris Motor Show, from the exceptionally efficient 99g/km E-Performance model to the thrilling 250km/h supercharged S.

Together, the two prestigious British luxury brands have created the FEEL XE Experience; featuring a fleet of luxury Stella McCartney inspired Jaguars draped in her distinctive Superhero print from her Spring 2015 collection. These vehicles will be taking to the streets of Paris on Monday 29 September, delivering a series of FEEL XE Experiences that have been carefully curated by Stella and Jaguar to provide consumers with an Exhilarating taste of cultural highlights that are unique to Paris.

Two years after graduating from Central St. Martins College of Art and Design, London, Stella moved to Paris and four years later she launched the first collection of Stella McCartney fashion house in Paris. The French capital remains close to her heart and it is still the city where Stella shows her new ready-to-wear collections every season. It is fitting that the streets of Paris will be the only city in the world to have the Jaguar Superheroes on its streets.

Ian Callum, Jaguar's Director of Design, spoke about his admiration for Stella McCartney's work and their shared passion for British design and innovation: "I've always greatly admired Stella's work and enjoyed her previous collaborative projects, especially the performance apparel for the GB Olympic Team. It is a beautiful demonstration of Stella's commitment to elegance, style as well as functionality and, performance which are attributes that I looked to express in the Jaguar XE."

The FEEL XE Experience marks the continuation of Stella's involvement in Jaguar's FEEL XE campaign. Stella attended the Jaguar XE global premiere at Earls Court in London on 08 September, and she also chose to arrive in the XE, the most fuel-efficient Jaguar to date, at The 2014 Stella McCartney Green Carpet Collection earlier this month.
