Jaguar India has launched the diesel variant of XE in India with a 2.0-liter engine, starting at Rs. 38.25 lakhs (ex-showroom, Delhi) for the base variant.
Powered by a 4 cylinder 2.0-liter Ingenium diesel engine producing 132 kW of max power at 4,000 rpm and 430 Nm of torque at 1,750-2,500 rpm, the diesel variant of XE finally plugs the gaping hole in Jaguar’s XE portfolio, as it did not have diesel variants since it was launched in 2016 in India.
Speaking at the launch, Rohit Suri, Managing Director, Jaguar Land Rover India Ltd. (JLRIL), said, “The XE has been a very successful model from the Jaguar family and with the Jaguar XE diesel, we are confident of further expanding our customer base in the country.”
Diesel variants of Jaguar XE will come with Drive Control™, 8-Speed Automatic Transmission, Torque Vectoring by Braking, All Surface Progress Control, Meridian Sound System (380 W), Sliding Panoramic Sunroof and 20.32 cm (8) Touch Screen with InControl Touch Infotainment System.
Jaguar XE Diesel will be available in three variants – Pure, Prestige and Portfolio. The price of higher end variants hasn’t yet been announced.
