Actor and aspiring film maker Idris Elba is set to embark on an epic 750 mile (1200 km) road trip in the new Jaguar XE, claimed to be the most fuel efficient Jaguar ever produced.
Driving from London to Berlin in winter conditions, whilst documenting his journey through film, Idris will test the fuel economy credentials of Jaguar's new sports saloon, while also enjoying in-car tech, driver aids and entertainment systems to help navigate his way through four countries in three days.
The Jaguar XE is a 2.0-litre four cylinder diesel engine that produces 163 PS and returns a fuel economy of 75mpg (26.55 kpl).
Idris Elba said, "My work takes me around the world, but I rarely have the time or luxury of getting behind the wheel for myself. I wanted to do this trip and record the experience through a series of short films."
"I have long been a fan of Jaguar's incredible sporting heritage and have been truly impressed with how the brand has evolved over the past few years. It's a real privilege being the first person to take the new XE on a significant road trip across Europe."
