JAGUAR'S new XE will be capable of doing 75mpg and its emissions will dip below 100g/km (€180 road tax), the automaker claims.

At the core of the BMW 3-series rival will be a brand new 2-litre turbodiesel Ingenium engine. And 75pc of its body structure will be made of aluminium.

Jaguar says the XE's body engineering stems from the marque's "fifth-generation bonded and riveted aluminium technology".

It will also have a newly developed high-strength aluminium alloy. This has a high proportion of recycled aluminium.

The carmaker says it plans, by 2020, to use 75pc recycled aluminium in its future models.
