Jaguar has at last locked in a badge for its new midsized sedan, releasing a teaser image today for the now officially named XE.

The XE name was first trademarked in 2008, although at the time it was believed that name would be applied to the company’s E-Type successor - a model that eventually became the F-Type.

The new XE will slot in below the larger XF sedan, putting to rest speculation that the new model could be named XS. (We never believed it; who wants to appear guilty of excess? - Ed.)

Taking on BMW’s top-selling 3 Series, the XE will debut Jaguar’s new iQ[AI] platform, making it the first midsized prestige offering to feature an aluminium monocoque construction.

The new architecture should help to push Jaguar to the head of the prestige class for weight and rigidity, promising top marks for handling and refinement.

That won’t be the only technology debuting in the XE however, with Jaguar also promising a range of new UK-built four-cylinder petrol and diesel engines.

"We announced just a few weeks ago that our new Engine Manufacturing Centre would produce a new family of premium, lightweight, low-friction, low emission four-cylinder petrol and diesel units,” Jaguar Land Rover boss Ralf Speth said in Geneva this week.

Dubbed ‘Ingenium’, the new engine line will suit inline and transverse applications - the latter suggesting that front-wheel-drive Jags could be on the horizon.

The company promises rear-wheel-drive as standard for the XE, though, while all-wheel-drive options could also be on the cards.

Bigger-engined models could also appear in the XE range, as the iQ[AI] platform was designed to accommodate larger mills.

Watch for supercharged 3.0 V6 and 5.0 V8 models to appear, wearing badges along the lines of XE S, XE R and - eventually - XE RS.

More images and details of the XE sport sedan will be revealed later this year, with a global rollout scheduled to begin in mid 2015.
