Jaguar Confirms New J-Pace SUV, XE, F-Type, Electric XJ, Subcompact Crossovers

In a pompously titled press release, Jaguar confirmed the next-generation products which include the J-Pace sport utility vehicle. Being a member of the Jaguar Land Rover group, it’s highly likely the newcomer will share a few underpinnings with Range Rover models based on the Modular Longitudinal Architecture.

This platform is developed for different levels of electrification, ranging from mild hybrids to electric vehicles such as the next generation of the XJ. “Jaguar values modern mobility as a basic right, and environmental protection as an obligation,” declared Ralph Speth, the CEO of Jaguar and a man who calls himself doctor.

The J-Pace might be larger than the F-Pace we know and love, but here’s the catch. The Leaping Cat of Coventry is also thinking about “considerably less expensive baby Jags” which will be “possibly badged A-Pace or B-Pace.” The nomenclature gives away the crossover body style of the two models, and obviously enough, the largest of the two will be a subcompact crossover.

Jaguar’s Speth has also stressed that neither Coventry nor Land Rover are for sale despite the flurry of reports and rumors in this regard. So far, it’s been suggested that Groupe PSA, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, and Hyundai-Kia are interested in acquiring the British automakers from Tata Motors.

Replacements for the XE and F-Type were also confirmed, and we already have spy shots of the next evolution of the two-door sports car available as a coupe or convertible. It remains to be seen if the supercharged V8 will soldier on into the next decade, Jaguar’s most powerful engine to date.

It’s understood the all-electric XJ will be succeeded by options with internal combustion, an inspired decision given the fact that the all-electric future has yet to materialize. The high starting price of BEVs and inadequate charging infrastructure are two of the biggest reasons tomorrow didn’t come today.

On that note, which of these nameplates pique your interest the most?
