Jaguar Is Working On A Long-Wheelbase XE (For China)

The Chinese auto market is a unique one. For example, they are the only market where there are long-wheelbase variants of compact and midsize luxury sedans.

Jaguar is the latest automaker that is planning a long-wheelbase variant of one of their sedans. Autocar got their hands on some spy photos of XE mule running around Great Britain. What makes this test mule stand out is it being slightly longer than the standard XE - around 120 MM (about 5 inches).

Possibly named the XE L, the model could get some extra luxury features such as window blinds, massaging seats, and a rear-entertainment system. The report goes on to say the model would likely forgo the less powerful engines available on the XE - most likely referring to the 2.0L gas and diesel four-cylinders.

The XE L could debut this month at the Shanghai motor show. We'll keep you posted on any new details.
