Jaguar F-Type V8S Costs More Than XKR-S In India
Jaguar has launched the F-Type in India, priced at an insane Rs. 1.37 crore for the V6 S and Rs. 1.61 crore for the V8 S (no base V6 on offer). Jaguar has almost confused Indians with the F-Type’s pricing as the 2-seater sportscar costs more than the XK in the country.
To put it into perspective, check out the Indian pricing of the F-Type and its competitors in US Dollar (converted as per today’s exchange rate 1$ = Rs. 59.80/-). The prices are in ascending order and on-road Mumbai, inclusive of registration and insurance charges.

- 28-Cars-Later Feels a bit high but then again... forget it Jake, its Clown World.In 2021 someone in Sewickley had an MY01 soft top in a manual with 54K otc which I am fairly certain was a 996 and not a Boxster - $20K. I already had my C70 at the shop being reborn and could have done the $20K but it would have been tight and just didn't make sense. Still...
- SCE to AUX Q: Should Speeding Fines Be Based on Income?A: Yes. Rich people (the guy with $1 more than you) should pay less, because giving his income to the government means he has to lay off a worker at his business.Laws are for poor people./s
- SCE to AUX "Volvo has suggested it’s capable of yielding 275 miles of range"Every non-US car's range estimate is based on WLTP - worth mentioning.EPA range never 'backs up' WLTP; it's always about 15% lower - so figure maybe 234 miles. Not great, except as a commuter.As for the interior - it's obviously a Model 3 clone, but the screen is substantially smaller. Incidentally, I suspect Tesla made the Model 3/Y interior so minimalist to save money - not just to be different. When you're trying to become profitable on EVs, every dollar counts.
- Dukeisduke I know it really isn't, but the central display looks like it's being held by one of those cheap spring-loaded mobile phone mounts. Poor interior design.
- Fred Remember when radios were an option? Do you know you can use your phone to listen to any radio station in the world? This is just a whole waste of time.
How about breaking down these prices for those of us in the bleachers? What does the actual car cost, vs. the taxes and fees and whatever? I am assuming that a HUGE portion of those prices is tax, I can't imagine JLR is making multiples of the profit they make on the car elsewhere. And relatively speaking, how is the exchange rate to the dollar? Assume rather bad at the moment, as the dollar is quite weak worldwide. I realize we get cars a lot cheaper than many places in the states, but our prices include NOTHING beyond the actual price of the car. In my state you can add another 7.5% tax, plus several hundred minimum in fees, another couple hundred for registration, and another bunch of cash for insurance that varies wildly by who you are and where you live.
No taxes in Oregon, sticker plus shipping, plus options, is the cost.
