The XE is built on an aluminium monocoque platform, and is a segment-first, says Jaguar. The company also announced that a new family of four-cylinder 2.0-liter engines in both diesel and petrol would be called the ‘Ingenium’ and that the XE would be the first to use it. The engines would be built in JLR’s upcoming engine facility in Wolverhampton, UK.
