The Jaguar XE (codename X760) is a compact executive car manufactured by the British manufacturer Jaguar. The model was launched at the October 2014 Paris auto show, with production beginning in April 2015.
The XE is the compact executive car Jaguar has produced since the 2009 model year X-Type and is the first of several Jaguar models to be built using Jaguar's new modular aluminium architecture, moving the company away from the Ford derived platforms that were used in the past for the X-Type and XF. The use of Jaguar's own platform allows the XE to feature either rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive configurations, and it is the first car in its segment with an aluminium monocoque structure.
The XE launched as a four-door saloon, but estate and coupé variants may follow.
