THE NEW JAGUAR XE: OFFERING ADVANCED CONNECTIVITY

(MAHWAH, NJ) – August 18, 2014 - A smooth, supple ride, sharp steering, quiet, luxurious cabin and seamless connectivity – the new Jaguar XE delivers in all respects and is equipped with a wide range of technologies designed to make every journey an enjoyable experience.

The Jaguar InControl® infotainment system equipped on the all-new Jaguar XE vehicles is designed around an 8-inch touchscreen. A clear, intuitive user interface gives quick, easy access to all features and functions, and voice control using plain speech means that drivers can keep their eyes on the road at all times*.

“In-car technologies in this ever-more connected and fast-paced world are an integral part of your driving experience. With the all-new XE we’re introducing an entire suite of cutting-edge driver aids and entertainment systems. Designed and developed from scratch, they will ensure that every journey you take is simpler, more relaxing, safer, and effortlessly enjoyable.”
Dr. Mike Bell, Jaguar’s Global Connected Car Director

Smartphones are changing the way people interact with the world around them – the new XE allows drivers to stay connected. Jaguar InControl Remote™ allows users of iOS and Android smartphones to connect to the car from wherever they are and control a range of vehicle functions. These include seven-day timed pre-setting of the climate control system, locking and unlocking the doors and starting the engine.

Jaguar InControl Apps™ allows users to seamlessly access smartphone apps through the vehicle’s touchscreen, making it easy to do everything from make a conference call, find a parking lot or book a hotel room*. With a purchased data plan, the XE can also function as a Wi-Fi hotspot, enabling multiple devices to connect to the Internet.

The sophistication of the infotainment system is matched by an array of advanced driver assistance systems available as an option in the new XE, such as the all-new laser Heads-Up Display (HUD). Projecting sharp, high-contrast color images onto the windshield, this new technology provides the driver with information such as speed and navigation instructions with maximum clarity and minimum distraction. In addition to better image quality, the laser HUD is smaller and lighter than existing systems**.

Designed and engineered in the UK, the aluminum-intensive XE will be the first Jaguar car manufactured at a new production facility at the JLR Solihull plant in the West Midlands in the UK.

The world premiere of the new Jaguar XE will be held in London on September 8, 2014.
