Any chance that JLR could provide some further information please on the spare wheel - ideally a picture maybe?

It's clearly available as an option, but my understanding is that there's no well for it. So the question is about how it's supplied. Four points I guess:

1. I understand the wheel is supplied with a cover - correct?
2. But it surely can't be just loose in the boot - that's potentially dangerous in an accident I would have thought, especially if the rear seats were down?
3. It's presumably a spacesaver spare, but is it supplied deflated to save more space as is sometimes done nowadays?
4. If it is deflated then is eg an electric inflation pump also supplied as part of the option?

Good afternoon Johnd,

I have a look into your query and would like to advise the below to your points.

1. Yes the spare wheel is supplied with a cover
2. The spare wheel is loose in the back - the following is stated in the owners handbook "WARNING Keep the back seats in an upright position when a spare or recovered wheel is on the load board. Failure to do so may cause serious injury in case of an accident."
3. The wheel come inflated
4. An instant mobility kit is provided.

I do have a picture and if you would like to send this to you please kindly PM me you email address and I will forward this to you.

Thanks, Stacie

I have ordered one.. it's £150 at order time and I can leave it in the car for the most part and just pull it out when I need to. Not ideal that it does not fit under the floor like the Evoque one does but I understand the space limitations of this car.. I bet if you wanted to add this (and the Jack etc) afterwards it would cost more than 150! For the most part I don't keep anything in the boot anyway but obviously this won't be for everyone.

Great idea to pui instrctions on how to change a wheel but unfortunatly it does not help where the REDUCED SECTION ALLOY SPARE WHEEL fits,i will explain why i say this because it says at the end store it back in the case for safety if you are changing a REDUCED SECTION SPARE WHEEL from a case in the boot then the wheel with flat which is full size would not fit in the case so i still think Jaguar should send out a proper answer to us all.

I posted this a couple of days ago on the main chat re spare tyres but thought it might be helpful here too. If you want to see the accompanying photo simply showing a spare in its soft case lying on the floor of the boot/trunk go to the main chat and look up spare tire:
"I have finally received a response from JLR re the spare tyre including a reference to this url and a photo.
So, in case there is any doubt at all, as I was originally told by my dealer, the spare tyre lies loose in the boot and has no special storage facility. Hopefully that now puts this issue to bed conclusively

Here's the official photo provided by the JLR customer relations person. Apparently it does strap down so it won't hit you in the head when you brake suddenly but to mind mine is amazingly Heath Robinson for a £60-£80,000 plus car. Talk about an after-thought. Mind you my Merc that I just traded for an iPace had no spare at all either so I was dependent on the same self healing stuff plus inflater that JLR are supplying as standard. Thank god I never got a puncture with that vehicle and I can only hope I have the same luck with my iPace
