The Jaguar XE now features a new electrified powertrain option and latest connected technologies.

For the first time on the Jaguar XE, the next-generation 2.0-litre four-cylinder Ingenium diesel is available with the latest Mild Hybrid Electric Vehicle (MHEV) technology for enhanced efficiency.

Inside, Jaguar’s state-of-the-art Pivi Pro dual-sim infotainment system ensures the XE is always connected. The intuitive new interface makes it easier for drivers to view information and perform frequently used functions on the move.

Focused detailed changes to the interior add further luxurious touches, including an updated seat design, while the new split-rim steering wheel design with metal gear shift paddles deliver a more engaging look and feel.

Advanced, efficient engines
The new XE is available with the next generation Ingenium 2.0-litre, four-cylinder, turbocharged 204PS diesel engine, along with the latest 250PS and 300PS petrol engines.

All XE models are available with Jaguar’s eight-speed automatic transmission, the full powertrain range is:


204PS MHEV 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo, eight-speed automatic, RWD

250PS 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo, eight-speed automatic, RWD
300PS 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo, eight-speed automatic, AWD
The next generation 2.0-litre four-cylinder 204PS Ingenium diesel engine features Mild Hybrid Electric Vehicle (MHEV) technology for the first time. The advanced new MHEV system uses a Belt-integrated Starter Generator (BiSG) situated in the engine bay to harvest energy usually lost when slowing and braking, which is then stored in a 48V lithium-ion battery located beneath the rear loadspace. It is able to redeploy the stored energy to assist the engine when accelerating away while also delivering a more refined and responsive stop/start system.

The new engine powers the XE from 0-60mph in 6.9 seconds and is capable of up to 58.5mpg* with CO2 emissions as low as 127g/km* on the WLTP test cycle.

A selection of advanced engine strategies provides added refinement and performance, including variable vane geometry turbocharger technology. At low engine speeds the turbocharger vanes rotate to narrow the opening between them, increasing exhaust gas velocity and boosting pressure, which provides rapid torque response and enhanced acceleration. At high engine speeds, the vanes open, ensuring maximum exhaust gas flow to deliver peak power while maintaining optimum efficiency.

The engine now features steel pistons, with the higher strength material allowing for a more compact, lower friction design as well as increased capability to withstand higher peak pressures. Their stronger construction enables more intricate and thorough integration of cooling channels for improved thermal management. At the same time, the thermal expansion rate is closer to that of the iron cylinder liners for improved clearance control, both enhancing cooling and reducing friction for better efficiency.

The new 2,500 bar piezo common-rail injection system delivers even finer control of fuel delivered into the cylinders. This reduces emissions and improves efficiency. Together with the latest variable geometry turbochargers, this ensures that the Ingenium diesel delivers the ideal balance of performance, refinement and fuel economy.
