Aluminum 2016 Jaguar XE Fuel Efficiency

Jaguar has always been synonymous with luxury and power, but when the all-new Jaguar XE arrives for the 2016 model year, the automaker will show that fuel efficiency is also one of their strong suits. The XE will be the most efficient Jaguar in existence, and with a closer look at the aluminum 2016 Jaguar XE fuel efficiency, it's clear to see exactly how the newest addition to the lineup will be able to pull it off.

There are a number of factors that come into play with the efficiency of the 2016 Jaguar XE. The first is size. The luxury automaker has never produced a vehicle as small as the XE, and the compact design will help the sedan to shed a great deal of weight when compared to some of the other Jaguar offerings. The overall weight will be further reduced by the body structure, which will be made mostly from aluminum.

A growing number of automakers are making the switch to aluminum bodies as the material is just as durable as steel-built bodies, but as it is nearly half the weight, the engine doesn't have to work as hard, meaning the fuel economy ratings are much higher. Jaguar has used aluminum construction before, but no vehicles in the lineup will have as much of the lightweight metal skin as the XE. All in all, the 2016 Jaguar XE body uses 75% aluminum content, which is significantly greater than any other luxury car in its class.

Official numbers haven't been announced yet, but based on testing that has, and continues to be done on the XE, the aluminum sedan will be able to achieve fuel consumption and CO2 emissions on the NEDC combined cycle of over 75 mpg and less than 100g/km respectively. With ratings like that, it's really no surprise that the 2016 Jaguar XE is quickly becoming one of the most anticipated upcoming new vehicles.

Unfortunately, we're still about a year off from seeing any 2016 models, so it may be quite some time before we receive the new, fuel efficient Jaguar XE here in Tinley Park IL.
