While Jaguar is staying tight-lipped about its future plans, they recently invited jurors from the World Car Awards to take a �sneak peak of its premium models for the 2020s and beyond.� This included a look at the XE and F-Type replacements as well as the upcoming electric XJ. The jurors were also given a glimpse of several all-new models including the J-Pace. While the World Car Awards didn�t say much about the vehicle, it�s expected to become Jaguar�s range-topping crossover.
Rumored to compete with models such as the BMW X7 and Mercedes GLS, the crossover is expected to ride on the company�s new MLA platform. The platform will debut on the 2020 Land Rover Defender and the company has previously revealed it can accommodate conventional, mild-hybrid and plug-in hybrid powertrains. The architecture can also support fully electric vehicles, but there�s no word on whether or not we can expect a J-Pace EV.
At the other end of the spectrum, the company is working on a small crossover which could adopt the A- or B-Pace moniker. Little is known about the model, but it be �considerably less expensive� and presumably slot beneath the E-Pace which starts at US$ 38,900. However, the crossover doesn�t appear to have been green-lighted quite yet.
