Jaguar has released some new information about the soon to be unveiled XE.

The video above talks about the use of aluminum in the chassis. The chassis is 75% aluminum, which makes for a very lightweight vehicle that is still strong. It's a first for the industry to use a new grade of high-strength aluminum called "RC 5754". That material has been developed specifically for the XE and uses a high amount of recycled material.

Fuel consumption should be less than 62.4 mpg in the US system.

I think that people are naturally skeptical of the high fuel efficiency that Jaguar is claiming, but this aluminum chassis makes it more possible. Still, I can almost guarantee you that the fuel efficiency won't completely live up to the advertised numbers.
