XF in Jaguar's future

29 November 2006

Jaguar Cars Ltd today announced a new sports sedan, the Jaguar XF which will make its public debut next spring - late 2007 - in the southern hemisphere.

Positioned in the luxury mid-size segment, the new Jaguar XF will replace the S-TYPE sedan in the Jaguar model line-up.

Designed and developed at Jaguar's Product Development Centre at Whitley in Coventry, UK, the new Jaguar XF will be built at Jaguar's Advanced Manufacturing Centre at Castle Bromwich in Birmingham, UK.

"The Jaguar XF is a new sports sedan that will challenge people to think again about Jaguar as daring and different," commented Wallis Dumper, the managing director of Motorcorp Distributors, the New Zealand importer and distributor for Jaguar.

"Our new XK sports car has been very well-received and is enjoying great success with the new XKR due in 2007 to further endorse the performance element of these beautiful fast cars. If you like the new XK, just wait until you see the new Jaguar XF! XF is proof of Jaguar’s new design era and the next stage in the evolution of the gorgeous philosophy."

Customer deliveries of the new Jaguar XF will commence globally in the northern hemisphere spring, early in 2008, and in New Zealand later that year.

Editors' notes
No images or further details of the new Jaguar XF are being released at this time.
The Jaguar S-TYPE, made its public debut in 1998 prior to going on sale in 1999. Since launch, globally circa 270,000 S-Types have been sold.
