Jaguar XE set to pounce in SA
The Jaguar XE will redefine the concept of the sports saloon and will be the driver’s car in its class as announced in Pretoria, South Africa earlier this week.
Kevin Stride, Vehicle Line Director, Jaguar XE, said, “The XE’s driving behaviour fully matches the promise of its seductive looks, and the emotional appeal is supported by state of-the-art approaches to efficiency, from aerodynamics to the advanced Ingenium engine family.” According to Jaguar, “Its lightweight construction, streamlined styling, luxurious interior and outstanding ride and handling are testament to company founder Sir William Lyons’ vision: ‘The car is the closest thing we will ever create to something that is alive’ The rear-drive XE is the only vehicle in its class to use an aluminium-intensive monocoque. This extremely robust yet light structure, together with double wishbone front suspension and an Integral Link rear axle, is fundamental to the XE’s innovative benchmark vehicle dynamics. The XE will arrive in South Africa in late 2015 and be positioned below the XF and XJ models.
