Jaguar Land Rover has confirmed that it will locally assemble a long wheelbase version of the XF for the Chinese market and has released a teaser image in this regard. Dubbed the XFL, it will be put together at the Cherry Jaguar Land Rover plant in Changshu and is the first car developed specifically for the Chinese market.

The Jaguar XFL is a long wheelbase version of the XF mid-level sedan. It will be launched at the 2016 Beijing Auto Show and will be the third locally assembled model after the Range Rover Evoque and the Land Rover Discovery Sport. It is underpinned by the same aluminium-intensive platform found in the F-Pace and XE.

It will have the same engine and underpinnings as the standard XF but will be 100mm longer. This entire figure will go into extending the wheelbase and consequently adding more space to the rear of the car. The standard car’s wheelbase is 2960mm, which means, this model’s will extend beyond the three metre mark.

Commenting on the imminent arrival of the XFL, Murray Dietsch, president of Chery Jaguar Land Rover, said, "Jaguar Land Rover is a world-leader in the production of aluminium vehicles and is one of the largest producers of aluminium bodies globally. The arrival of the all-new Jaguar XFL brings the best of this experience and technology to Changshu. It is an important milestone for the team at Chery Jaguar Land Rover."
