engine start – from anywhere in the world
InControl Apps allows users to access Apple and Android smartphone apps through
the vehicle’s touchscreen
Wi-Fi connectivity for multiple devices
Laser head-up display combines sharper images with compact, weight-saving design
A smooth, supple ride, exceptionally sharp steering, quiet, luxurious cabin and seamless
connectivity – the new Jaguar XE delivers in all respects and is equipped with a wide range
of state-of-the art technologies designed to make every journey an even more enjoyable
The new XE’s InControl infotainment system is designed around an 8-inch touchscreen. A
clear, intuitive user interface gives quick, easy access to all features and functions, and voice
control using plain speech means that drivers can keep their eyes on the road at all times.
“In-car technologies in this ever-more connected and fast-paced world are an integral part
of your driving experience. With the all-new XE we’re introducing an entire suite of cutting-
edge driver aids and entertainment systems. Designed and developed from scratch, they will
ensure that every journey you take is simpler, more relaxing, safer, and effortlessly
Dr Mike Bell, Jaguar’s Global Connected Car Director
Smartphones are changing the way people interact with the world around them – the new XE
ensures that drivers stay connected. Jaguar InControl Remote allows users of iOS and
Android smartphones to connect to the car from wherever they are and control a range of
vehicle functions. These include seven-day timed pre-setting of the XE’s climate control
system, locking or unlocking the doors, or starting the engine.
Jaguar InControl Apps allows users to seamlessly access smartphone apps through the
vehicle’s touchscreen, making it easy to do everything from make a conference call, find a
parking space or book a hotel room. The XE also functions as a Wi-Fi hotspot, enabling
multiple devices to connect to the internet – the vehicle antenna provides the best possible
The sophistication of the infotainment system is matched by the array of advanced driver
assistance systems available in the new XE: the laser head-up display (HUD) is an industry-
first. Projecting sharp, high-contrast colour images onto the windscreen, the technology
provides the driver with information such as speed and navigation instructions with
maximum clarity and minimum distraction. As well as better image quality, the laser HUD is
smaller and almost a third lighter than existing systems.
Designed and engineered in the UK, the aluminium-intensive XE will be the first Jaguar
manufactured at a new purpose-built production facility at the company's Solihull plant in the
West Midlands in the UK.
The world premiere of the new Jaguar XE will be held in London on September 8th.
