Motorway police add Jaguar XF to the fleet

The Central Motorway Police Group, which patrols motorways across Staffordshire, Mercia and the West Midlands has bought seven high performance Police vehicles based on the Jaguar XF Diesel S model.

Geoff Cousins, managing director for Jaguar Cars UK, 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.

“Police forces across the country have been evaluating the XF and we are delighted that the team at the Central Motorway Police Group has chosen Jaguar to join its fleet.”

The Jaguar XF beat other contenders with a fuel economy figure of 42mpg and a CO2 rating of 179 g/km. The 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 XF will retain an impressive 80 per cent of its purchase price after 12 months or 14,000 miles, and 45 per cent of its value after three years and 60,000 miles of motoring.
