Default Jaguar officially begins deliveries of XJ in India

Jaguar officially begins deliveries of XJ in India-dsc02607.jpg

From Tata Motors press release

Quote:
Jaguar Land Rover has begun deliveries of the iconic Jaguar XJ in India. The car was shown in India during the Delhi Auto Expo in January this year and the stunningly beautiful and revolutionary new product from the Jaguar stable was acclaimed by one and all.

Commenting on the occasion, Mr S Krishnan, Tata Motors’ Senior Vice President (Commercial), Passenger Car Business Unit, said, “We notice a very intense aspiration in India to own an XJ. We are encouraged by the number of customers who have expressed a desire to own this iconic car.”

Sleek, sporting and sophisticated, the all-new Jaguar XJ brings a daring new spirit to automotive luxury. It offers a seductive mix of striking design, breathtaking performance and engineering. The elongated teardrop shape of the side windows establishes the car’s silhouette and lies at the heart of its flowing design. It does not just look streamlined -- its drag coefficient of 0.29 makes it the most aerodynamic Jaguar ever, along with the XF.

At the heart of the all-new XJ’s construction is Jaguar’s unique lightweight vehicle architecture. Primarily aluminium, but also using magnesium and composite alloys, this allows Jaguar to produce a significantly lighter and stiffer body – the lightest in its class. The structure features aerospace-based riveting and bonding processes, and uses these advanced materials to deliver improved strength, enhanced refinement and superior safety performance.

A coupé profile cloaks a cabin that offers comparable levels of space to saloons with a more conventional style. There is generous accommodation for five occupants. The exquisitely designed interior has a strong sporting character throughout. The spacious cabin is rich in the tactile delight of soft-glove leather, warm veneers and cool chrome.The panoramic glass roof dramatically enhances the sense of light and space inside.

In keeping with its status as the ultimate four-door Jaguar, the XJ introduces a new generation of interior technologies, pioneering the use of display and infotainment systems such as the innovative Virtual Instrument dials, 8” full color Dual View technology Touch Screen display and 1200W Bowers & Wilkins premium surround sound system.

The all-new XJ delivers a driving experience that is just as memorable as the car’s appearance. Benefiting from technologies like continuously variable damping (Adaptive Dynamics), quick ratio power-steering system, JaguarDrive SelectorTM, JaguarDrive ControlTM, Jaguar Sequential Shift and Dynamic Stability Control with Trac DSC mode the new XJ combines responsive, sporting dynamics with the refined, supple ride expected from a luxury Jaguar.

The new XJ is available in India in the long wheelbase version. It is powered by the highly acclaimed 5.0-litre 385PS AJ-V8 Gen III naturally aspirated direct-injection V8 petrol engine.

Default Wow!

One word, WOW!

This car looks do much better than S Class, & series and A8 combined, its hard to express.

I think this is one of the most beautiful automobile across ANY segment, across ALL brands. The Jags have killer designs; If only they can 'push' their products faster and more agressively

While I love the car myself, I doubt it's going to be able to make a huge dent in the sales figures of the teutons. The petrols may lose ground - and I would be pleased if they did - but the XJ is not going to be able to touch the S350 CDI / 730Ld with that 5.0 V8. Diesel economy is diesel economy in India. Yes, even at that end of the spectrum. Notice how many of the fatcats running around are actually diesels. Majority.

I think Jag want to create a upmarket image - Buy it only if you can afford to run it. Dealers bread and butter will be the Land Rover/ Range Rover. BTW - Land Rovers might be assembled in India - more for military purchases

I know for sure that JLR are planning to assemble Land Rovers both in China and India but in a time span of 2 years. Read this in the UK Financial Times. Also the military are increasing spending and a lot of contracts will go for locally supplied items. tata won't want to miss out on that !

Have seen an XJ in person & sat in it too. Have to say the roof-setup & D-pillars look tacky. I don't fancy the tail either.
