Jaguar Land Rover introduces locally produced Jaguar XJ 2.0 in India.
Tata Motors’ Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) launched its locally manufactured Jaguar XJ 2.0L (petrol powered) at a price of Rs 93.24 lakh on September 16, 2014. Earlier this year, the company had successfully launched its diesel powered Jaguar XJ 3.0L for a price tag of Rs 98.69 lakh, which was also manufactured locally at the company’s plant in Pune, Maharashtra.
The saloon car comes with various luxury features, including electrically adjustable rear seats with massage function in three intensity settings and increased rear headroom. The rear seat entertainment has two 10.2-inch LCD screens, electric rear side window blinds, soft door close, 825-Watt Meridian Surround audio system, LED reading lights in the rear and newly designed business tables.
The car is powered by a new 2.0-litre i4 turbocharged petrol engine that has a maximum power output of 240PS at 5,500rpm and maximum torque of 340 Nm at 1,750rpm.
The petrol engine is reported to be the company’s first such engine that does not have competition in the luxury car market in India. Currently, the market for luxury cars is dominated by Audi, Mercedes-Benz and BMW.
Apart from the Jaguar XJ 2.0L, other models manufactured at JLR’s Chakan facility near Pune are Jaguar XF, XJ and two variants of Freelander in India.
