Chauffeur package

Jaguar is aiming to boost sales of its XJ saloon with the launch of its new package aimed at the burgeoning chauffeur market.

Available to any customer who buys a long wheelbase XJ, the Jaguar Chauffeur Programme is designed to ensure buying, owning and maintaining a model is an “effortless experience”.

It includes:

  • Replacement vehicle (and a Public Carriage Office-licensed model for chauffeurs in London).
  • Priority servicing and repairs, with models jumping the queue at the service centre to ensure minimum downtime.
  • Free membership to Quintessentially Jaguar Global Concierge Service, a package which gives a chauffeur’s clients access to exclusive restaurants, hotel reservations and other services.
  • Tailored finance options with contract hire packages of 18, 24 or 36 months, with or without maintenance, and with a range of flexible mileage limits from 10,000 to 50,000 miles a year.
  • David Spencer, head of Jaguar Corporate Sales, said: “The XJ long wheelbase is already a strong competitor in the rapidly expanding chauffeur market.

“It costs £7,000 less than its nearest competitor and is best in class when comparing wholelife costs and benefit-in-kind tax bills.

“With the lowest company car tax bill and strong residuals, accompanied by support from the Jaguar Chauffeur Programme, chauffeurs can enjoy hassle-free ownership and real-world economy.”

The programme is available on all long wheelbase XJs, although the key focus will be on the £47,292 twin-turbo V6 diesel Executive version. 

A higher spec Sovereign is also available at £53,292. The 4.2-litre V8-engined petrol Sovereign costs £59,892.

Jaguar is also offering a 48-hour demonstration loan (PCO-licensed for London) for those considering a long wheelbase XJ.
