Jaguar uploaded a new teaser image for its upcoming baby Jaguar sedan to its Twitter account. The name Jaguar XE was confirmed for the new car in March this year, and at that point a shadowy image of the sedan’s front end was released as a teaser, along with two images of the XE’s new “iQ AI” platform.

This new teaser image shows a ‘skin-less’ Jaguar XE wrapped with body wrap, revealing the structure under the car’s sheet metal, such as the impact bars in the doors. Somehow the movie Hollow Man came to mind. You can see the overall shape of the car, but there are not much body details. But then again Jaguar’s design language doesn’t really call for complex surfaces anyway.

We’re expecting a similiar engine line-up to that found in the bigger Jaguar XF, with the entry level served by 2.0 litre turbocharged four cylinder engines. However, instead of the current Ford sourced EcoBoost units installed in the XF, the XE will debut a new 2.0 litre turbo four cylinder from Jaguar Land Rover’s new Ingenium engine family.

We’re expecting a public unveil at this year’s 2014 Paris Motor Show.
