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.
