Go behind the scenes of Solihull’s stunning new state-of-the-art production facility and witness what it takes to bring to life some of the most technologically advanced cars in the world.
Solihull has invested over £1bn in recent years making it one of the most progressive car manufacturing facilities in the world. The all-new Aluminium-intensive architecture body shop and final assembly cover an area equivalent to 22 football pitches, capable of producing a new generation XE every 78 seconds.
Thanks to its revolutionary body structure, the new XE is the stiffest, lightest and most aerodynamic sports saloon we’ve ever built. Now see it come to life before your very eyes, from skillful body construction to bespoke finishing.
Jaguar’s new first in class Aluminium-intensive monocoque is revolutionizing vehicle dynamics, refinement and ride quality. At our Solihull manufacturing facility, you can watch its perfectly contoured body take shape – complete with those signature rear haunches.
It takes 615 hi-tech robots working in perfect unison to construct the XE’s unique lightweight body. And they achieve it in a matter of seconds, using state-of-the-art cameras to locate the precise positions. You’ll have a front-row view, as Jaguar’s dedicated cybernetic army shape, rivet and bond, before our skilled craftsmen customise and finish each unique Jaguar to order.
Thinking of buying a Jaguar? The XE Tour offers the chance to let your imagination loose on hundreds of bespoke elements. Interiors such as glove-soft leather in Jet, Latté or Brogue; veneers in Brushed Aluminium or Satin Fine Line Wood; wheel trims, paint colours and multimedia options for a classical, sporting or contemporary feel are all available.
