Inspired by the success of the F-Pace, Jaguar will now endeavor to beef up the brands most successful model ever with their latest creation, the J-Pace.
Jaguar, who aim to have the model hit the streets in 2021, look to be adding the final piece of the puzzle, following the release of the F-Pace’s little sister, the E-Pace.
With that being said, Jaguar’s Australian MD confirmed that they would need to tread carefully, given the concern for cannibalising the larger Range Rover product. To get the stamp of approval, it will need to be different from any of the established Range Rover product. Our thoughts are that it will aim to attract a younger audience, with modern sporty looks, which will take it away from the established Range Rover shape and design.
Having broken the news of the new J-Pace, Jaguar’s design director Ian Callum confirmed that the F-Pace would be undergoing a facelift later next year. The thoughts are that this facelift will most likely coincide with models new Hybrid engine.
With Jaguar selling an estimated 160,000 units per year and the F-Pace accounting for nearly half of those, the anticipation building for the new J-Pace is generating a lot of excitement. Of course, the real excitement will generate when the finalised deigns are released - particularly if those images include an SVR version.
Clearly, Jaguar believe that they have turned a corner following the UK’s financial crisis when the manufacturer hit rock bottom. Its great the see the British manufacturer bounce back and start to push themselves back into the limelight where they once shone.
