Jaguar has announced a major new chauffeur deal with Crawfords of London, underlining Jaguar’s fleet success this year and its status as a major player in the luxury private hire market.
50 2016 Model Year XJ LWB Autobiography models are to be added to the firm’s fleet of luxury models, transporting its most demanding customers in a car that is the pinnacle of Jaguar’s line-up. As standard it comes with heated and cooled reclining rear seats, rear business tables, wi-fi and sunblinds.
The 2016 Model Year XJ features an uprated 3.0-litre V6 diesel engine, with CO2 emissions reduced by 6 per cent to 149g/km, compared with the previous XJ. It also has a suite of hi-tech features, including 360 Degree Park Distance Control and InControl Remote Premium, allowing owners to access the car through their smartphone for features such as cabin pre-warming.
Jimmy Lazarou of Crawfords of London said: “Our business is to chauffeur the world’s most discerning people: from captains of industry, CEOs, business professionals, A-list celebrities, high net worth individuals and sporting personalities. The Jaguar XJ LWB Autobiography offers everything that we could want; it is stylish, spacious and luxurious. With rear seat entertainment that includes twin high-definition screens, wi-fi and a host of connectivity for smartphones, not to mention soft Nappa leather seats and acres of space, the specification meets all of our clients expectations. We are also proud to be associated with a quintessentially British brand such as Jaguar.”
Chris Newitt, Sales Director Jaguar Land Rover UK, said: “We are very proud that one of the UK’s most highly-respected chauffeur companies, Crawfords of London, has selected our new Jaguar XJ 2016 Model Year as their flagship vehicle. It is testament to Jaguar’s latest range – which features cars that have style, luxury and low running costs in equal measure – that we are ticking every box for business customers.”
