The Jaguar XE has been introduced, and with it comes a new first for the maker: a projected fuel economy beyond 75MPG, something that is joined by a new modular architecture, RC5754 aluminium alloy, and environmentally friendly CO2 emission numbers. The car is set to be unveiled on September 8 in London.
Automaker Jaguar Land Rover wants to make driving safer by keeping drivers from having to take their eyes off the road even to look down at their dashboards. Somewhat ironically, it plans to do this by putting such vital pieces of information on the car's windshield itself, developing what it calls a Virtual Windscreen.
Jaguar will turn back time and build six brand new "Lightweight" E-types, perfect reproductions of the coveted race cars that were never completed in 1963. Eighteen of the beautiful coupes were originally planned for the series, which saw the hand-made British sportscar take to GT races, but in the end only twelve were built.
Proving that it is quite intent in maintaining its presence in China despite a slowdown in the Chinese automotive market, Jaguar Land Rover has given the crowd at the 13th Beijing Auto Show something to chew on. These include new cars for China, as well as the Chinese unveiling of Land Rover's Discovery Vision concept SUV.
Land Rover has unveiled a new concept system that makes the hood of the car see through so that the driver can see what is under the car and out of their line of sight. The tech is called the Transparent Bonnet concept and provides a full view of what is under and in front of the car, so drivers can see hidden obstacles. Land Rover says that the transparent bonnet system is part of a suite of concept tech being showcased in the Discovery Vision Concept car at the New York International Motor Show.

With the reveal of the Jaguar C-X17, the company has demonstrated the capabilities of their next-generation advanced aluminum unibody architecture. While it's been suggested that a release of the C-X17 in the consumer market is "prett feasible", Jaguar has made it clear that the lightweight architecture inside this beast is, indeed, ready to be featured in a real market-ready automobile. The first time consumers will see a vehicle on the market with Jaguar's new architecture will be inside 2015, with a North American launch in 2016, and the vehicle itself will be a mid-size premium C/D segment sedan.
The concept vehicle known as Jaguar C-X17 has been revealed in full today in Frankfurt - not as a production car, mind you, but as a concept that may very well see production in the near future. This is the first time Jaguar has launched into the CUV/SUV territory, and they've done so keeping the Jaguar design language from start to finish. This is thanks in a large way to Jaguar Design Director Ian Callum.
