Jaguar Land Rover UK's Fleet sales for 2016 are already on track to be the best yet, growing by 84% in Q1 2016 compared to Q1 2015, as XE, XF, Evoque and Discovery Sport models all posted rapid fleet sales growth - evidence of Jaguar Land Rover's commitment to ensure 25% of its global sales will be to fleet and business customers by 2020. With the introduction of business-friendly models, including the XE and XF with CO2 from as low as 99g/km, Jaguar UK saw fleet sales grow by 194% from Q1 2015 to Q1 2016. Land Rover UK's performance in Q1 2016 was so strong that one-in-three fleet cars sold in sectors the brand competes in was a Land Rover. All of Jaguar Land Rover's key fleet models - the XE, XF Evqoue and Discovery Sport - grew their share of the fleet sector more than any of their rivals when comparing the whole of calendar year 2015. Likewise, where the Range Rover Evoque and Discovery Sport grew their share of the fleet sector, rival models saw their share shrink.
As the Jaguar XE celebrates its first full-year of sales, 'REALCAR', the pioneering recycled aluminium project that contributes to the awarding winning saloon's aluminium-intensive body has reached a significant milestone. Jaguar Land Rover has reclaimed over 50,000 tonnes of aluminium scrap, the weight of 200,000 XE body shells, back into the production process during 2015/16, preventing more than 500,000 tonnes of CO2 equivalent from entering the atmosphere by not using primary aluminium material. The figures are a result of project 'REALCAR' which involves 11 UK press shops implementing a closed-loop, segregating waste aluminium scrap so that it can be sent back into production to be re-melted into recycled aluminium sheet for use in Jaguar Land Rover vehicles. The Jaguar Land Rover-led research project, part funded by Innovate UK, also saw the development of a recycled aluminium-based alloy which can accept a higher percentage of the recovered scrap. In 2014, the Jaguar XE became the first car in the world to use this innovative high-strength aluminium alloy, developed by project partner Novelis. More than £7m has been invested across Jaguar Land Rover's own Halewood, Castle Bromwich and Solihull press shops to install intricate segregation systems to capture and distribute the aluminium scrap for re-melting, reducing waste, retaining higher quality and value in the material. Recovering aluminium in this way offers huge sustainability benefits, with aluminium recycling requiring up to 95% less energy than primary aluminium production.
The Jaguar XE has scored another victory over its rivals to be rated the safest Large Family Car on sale by crash safety testing body, Euro NCAP. It's the latest in a long line of successes for the XE, launched just nine months ago, which is also included on the shortlist for the prestigious European Car of the Year (ECOTY) title for 2016.
The Jaguar XE and all-new Jaguar XF saloons have been awarded the maximum five star rating in Euro NCAP's 2015 safety tests. XE and XF scored highly in every category - Adult Occupant, Child Occupant, Pedestrian and Safety Assist - and are among the most highly-rated models in their respective segments. As well as outstanding crash protection, the XE and XF also benefit from a range of active safety systems including Autonomous Emergency Braking (fitted as standard in Europe), which uses a forward-facing stereo camera to detect vehicles which could pose a threat of collision: the system can give the driver visual and audible warnings and automatically apply the brakes if a collision is deemed imminent.
The Jaguar XE, already established as the most dynamic sports saloon in the mid-size segment, once again sets new standards in driver reward and offers an even wider range of state-of-the art technology. The XE has received myriad global awards thanks to its unrivalled balance of ride, handling and refinement. The light, stiff, Advanced Aluminium Architecture, sophisticated suspension and powerful, efficient engines make the XE the driver's car in its class. With the addition of InControl Touch Pro - Jaguar's next-generation infotainment system, torque on-demand all-wheel drive, F-TYPE-derived Configurable Dynamics and a wider range of advanced driver assistance systems, the XE delivers an even more compelling drive.
Jaguar, the Official Car of The Championships, is to supply 170 luxury, high performance vehicles to support tournament operations, including the new Jaguar XE. Yesterday, at the start of the tournament, the company also launched its hashtag FeelWimbledon campaign, which uses cutting edge sensors to analyse and celebrate the unique spectrum of emotions associated with the world's number one tennis tournament. As part of this multi-sensory fan experience at Wimbledon, selected members of the crowd enjoying the tennis this year will be provided with biometric wristbands capturing the excitement at SW19, whilst atmospheric, in-ground sensors monitoring the energy around the courts, and global sentiment on social media will be analysed. Jaguar believes that it will provide a unique level of insight and present a completely new perspective on the greatest Grand Slam of them all.
The innovative new Jaguar XE has been named Telegraph Car of the Year and Best Business Car at an awards ceremony in London. The news comes just weeks after XE won Best New Car at the Fleet World Awards and Best Large Car at the Diesel Car Magazine Awards. The awards are voted for by Telegraph readers, with the overall Car of the Year chosen by the Telegraph Cars team from the list of winners. The Jaguar XE is available to order with a range of all-new, highly efficient Ingenium diesel engines and a lightweight aluminium-intensive monocoque - both of which contribute to an outstanding cost of ownership highlighted by class-leading residual values (up to 45 per cent) and fuel economy as high as 75mpg.
A record number of motor manufacturers are unveiling some of the very latest models to hit this year's fleet market at the record-breaking Fleet World Fleet Show next week. This year's Show on May 12th, which is being sponsored by Barclaycard Fuel + in association with TMC, will see a number of UK debuts in an impressive line-up of new models from the 25 vehicle manufacturers attending the event, with more than 220 models available for driving. Fleet decision-makers will have a choice of three separate circuits of the world-famous Silverstone Grand Prix track on which to evaluate them, plus off-road driving on the 4x4 course. Amongst the stars of the Show seem certain to be the latest offerings from a resurgent Jaguar Land Rover Group which has earmarked the Fleet Show to unveil its very latest new models. These include the new Jaguar XE sports saloon, which the maker is aiming squarely at the German brands that currently dominate the compact executive sector of the fleet market.

High value service packages will be available from launch.
Jaguar Land Rover's Solihull Manufacturing Plant today marked another significant milestone in its 70 year history as it welcomed the Jaguar brand to the site for the first time. The West Midlands based plant marked the beginning of production of the all-new Jaguar XE with the official opening of its state-of-the-art £500m 'factory within a factory'. The Jaguar XE, which represents the culmination of more than £2bn of product, infrastructure and technology investment, has been heralded as vitally important for the British automotive supply chain thanks to an additional £4bn worth of contracts committed to 55 UK based tier one suppliers. Together these suppliers, which cover the length and breadth of the country, have provided 55% of the components to this all-new model in the Jaguar line-up.
