Jaguar UK has launched a high performance Police pursuit vehicle based on the company’s XF Diesel S model and Police forces across the UK are currently evaluating the car.
The Police specification XF features the 271bhp 3.0 litre twin-turbodiesel engine, a roof-mounted light bar with 3600 blue flashing lights and three other sets of blue, red or white flashing LED lights. Jaguar maintains that the XF’s combination of a fuel economy figure of 42mpg, CO2 rating of 179g/km, best-in-class torque and class-leading residual values beats other competitors in this significant niche market.
Geoff Cousins, Jaguar’s UK Managing Director, said: “Police forces are looking for vehicles that represent value for money, have good environmental credentials and deliver the power and performance required of a pursuit vehicle.
“The Police Officers driving pursuit vehicles demand a very high level of performance and handling, as well as safety and comfort. We hope that with this amount of torque on tap – and a 0-60mph time of 5.9 seconds, we will meet and exceed the exacting standards of any Police Officer driving this car.”
