Geoff Cousins, Managing Director for Jaguar Cars UK is delighted that the Jaguar XF will be joining the Central Motorway Police Group. He said "Police drivers demand the very best from their vehicles power, performance, safety and comfort are all very important, while their fleet managers are looking at good environmental credentials and strong residual values to ensure value for money.
The Central Motorway Police Group which patrols across Staffordshire, Mercia and the West Midlands has bought seven high performance Police vehicles based on the award winning Jaguar XF Diesel S Model.
The Jaguar XF is brilliantly built there is as much wood and leather as in any Jaguar but that does not imply it is traditional, everything from the shape of the dash to the textures and the ice blue ambient says 21st century.
A roof mounted light bar with 3600 blue flashing lights and integrated side alley lights, blue and white flashing LED lights inside the front grille, side mounted blue flashing LED lights, blue and red flashing LED lights integrated in the rear light clusters and a Home Office-specification electronics 'Police pack' that powers a full suite of electronic equipment help make these cars the ultimate Police vehicles.
The Jaguar XF beats other contenders with a fuel economy figure of 42mpg and an excellent CO2 rating of 179 g/km. The Jaguar XF’s residual value is a key factor in making it a financially sound choice for police forces. Research carried out by EurotaxGlass’s suggest the new 3.0-litre Jaguar XF will retain an impressive 80 per cent of its purchase price after 12 months or 14,000 miles which makes it the best in class, and an astonishing 45 per cent of its value after three years and 60,000 miles of motoring.
The Jaguar XF is one of the best cars in the world right now, smooth, agile quiet and impeccably well built.
