Does keyless (hands-free) entry not come standard?

I recently purchased a 2017 Jaguar XE 25t Premium and made the assumption that in this day and age, most cars, especially luxury cars, would come equipped with key detection technology so I don't have to reach into my pocket for the remote every time I want to unlock the car. I have tried to grab the handle, as described in the manual, but the car does not seem to detect the key and I can only open it manually with the remote. Does this not come standard? If not, and if I in fact do not have this option, is there any way to add this, either via aftermarket installation or via a Jaguar dealer? This may be one of the biggest disappointments I could have with this car if it does not have it. Any insight or assistance would be greatly appreciated.

I was wondering the same thing. Did you find out if it can be added? It is very disappointing not to have key detection.
