So I've been doing some research to figure out where the most likely reveal of the XE will happen. First off its important to know when the XE should be on sale in dealerships. All signs point to a 2015 release date, and though it hasn't been said when in 2015, most people are thinking that it will be an early 2015 release date.

So what auto shows does that leave us with. The two most likely candidates are the 2014 Paris Motor Show and the 2014 LA Auto Show. The Paris Motor Show is going to be held from October 4th-19th which puts it at a good time in preparation for a 2015 reveal. Jaguar has also revealed big cars in Paris before. Last year it was the F-Type Convertible.

LA is another possibility though. The LA Auto Show is held from November 21st-30th, which puts it in the perfect range for a 2015 release. Jaguar has also revealed cars here in the past. Last year they revealed the F-Type hardtop in LA.

As you can see, both auto shows have a similar set of arguments that would point towards them being the place of the big reveal.

Which do you think will be the site of the Jaguar XE's reveal?

I would of said frankfurt as thats usually lovely show for the germans so it would of been lovely to steal their thunder. However Frankfurt is on its off year in 2014...

But I think it will be Paris personally. It just carries more weight with European shoppers than an LA launch...

For the reveal or for the actual release of the XE? If it debuts in 2015 than that would mean it would probably be unveiled in New York or Geneva, right?

I am sticking with Paris or LA at the moment. If Paris does debut it than I still think that they would bring it to LA to show it off again. So maybe it won't be one or the other.

Thinking about it somemore I actually think there might be two releases. First, likely paris we'll see a production concept, then as the XE gets closer to showrooms we'll have a production launch... Where that could or would be is anyones guess, but Geneva is always a good candidate :D

And Geneva is one of the better shows, looking forward to what will show up their aside from the Jag!

Yea I guess that it is true that they haven't shown us a XE concept yet so that could be what we get in Paris. It is possible that they skip over a concept and just say that the C-X17 concept was the xe concept.

It would be a pretty quick concept to production if we saw it go Paris and then LA and then on sale.

I have to say I seriously doubt that :D



If anything it would be CX18, but considering they've already announced the name I dont see them doing a full bore concept, more like what Acura did with the TLX...

It will likely share the same design language, that a given. Sharing power plants is also possible.

One thing Jaguar needs to do is bring an SUV to market, which is what that will eventually be on a production level.
