Jaguar has released additional details about the forthcoming XE set to be unveiled in London on September 8.

The XE will use aluminum for more than 75 percent of its body structure which will not only lower the car's weight but it will also provide it with high torsional stiffness. It's actually the first car in the world to use a new grade of high-strength aluminum called "RC 5754" that has been developed specifically for the baby Jag and uses a high amount of recycled material.

The most economical variant of the 2015 Jaguar XE will have a fuel consumption of less than 4 liters / 100 km (75 mpg UK or 62.4 mpg US) with CO2 emissions of less than 100 g/km. On the other end of the spectrum, there will be a high-powered range-topping version which will hit a top speed of more than 186 mph (300 km/h), possibly the rumored XER-S which will allegedly get a 542 bhp V8 5.0-liter supercharged engine sourced from the F-Type R Coupe.

Following its September 8 reveal in London, the XE will be Jaguar's first model to go into production at a newly established production facility located at the firm's Solihull plant in UK.
