Looks like testing for the next generation Jaguar XJ has already begun. Here are pictures of it on public roads. It’s likely that this prototype is a hybrid of the new Premium Lightweight Architecture (PLA) floor and crash structure, combined with the upper structure of the current Jaguar XJ. In its present form, the XJ was launched in late 2009 and is expected to be replaced by 2016. There’s no news on whether similar mould-breaking looks will be carried across to the new car. By the time it is replaced, the XJ will be the only aluminium JLR model still based on the first-generation riveted-and-bonded aluminium architecture. The new XJ will be based on the PLA, which also underpins the latest Range Rover and Range Rover Sport. The PLA is also scheduled to be used as a basis for the Land Rover Discovery replacement. JLR revealed that a third of its entire engineering staff were working on the aluminium PLA platform and the Mk4 Range Rover. The PLA is more flexible in the kind of vehicle it can underpin, plus major changes have been made to the production-line technology, including the advanced robotic rivet guns. Source: Autocar UK
The news is just in that Jaguar is launching a 2.0 litre EcoBoost petrol variant of its XJ luxo barge in India. Power will be around 237 bhp and price is said to be Rs. 1.16 crore ex Showroom Delhi which makes it 14 lakhs cheaper than the 3.0 V6 I think Jaguar should go the CKD way with this XJ variant because it still costs more than its rivals. Going CKD will bring down the price further and should be awesome if it came under the 1 crore mark Ex showroom. JLR already assembles the Freelander and XF 2.2 at Pune so this would be a good idea. Opinions?
