Jaguar has begun assembling the XJ sedan at it’s Pune facility via CKD which has prompted them to relaunch the Jaguar XJ 2.0 in the Indian market. Local assembly of the vehicle has enabled Jaguar to reduce the price of the Jaguar XJ 2.0 petrol which now stands at Rs. 93.24 lakh (ex-showroom Mumbai). This is the third vehicle that is locally assembled now at Jaguar Land Rover’s Pune facility after the XF, Land Rover Freelander and the XJ 3.0 litre diesel.
Rohit Suri, Vice President, Jaguar Land Rover, India said, “We are excited to introduce the locally manufactured Jaguar with a 2.0-litre petrol engine, a first in its segment, at an attractive price point. The recently launched XJ 3.0L Diesel received an overwhelming response from customers across India. The introduction of the all-new 2.0L petrol engine is keeping in mind our endeavour to broaden the appeal of this fabulous car to customers who are more inclined towards driving a car with a powerful petrol engine at its heart.”
Jaguar’s petrol luxury limousine comes packed with a plethora of luxury features mainly centered around the rear passengers like electrically adjustable rear seat with a 3 mode massage function, 10 inch LCD screens, Meridian audio system, reading lights and business tables at the rear. The Jaguar XJ 2.0 is powered by a 2.0 litre petrol engine which puts out 237 BHP and 347 Nm of torque mated to an 8 speed transmission. It is available only in the top end Portfolio trim.
The sub Rs. 1-Crore price tag has definitely made the Jaguar XJ 2.0 petrol more appealing and the British manufacturer will be hoping to pull some more buyers away from Mercedes-Benz’ S-Class, BMW’s 7 Series and Audi’s A8 which are the XJ’s direct competitors in India.
